Make your way to a centrally-located meeting point in Victoria, where you’ll meet a guide and group for 4pm departure. If you’d like to take home a growler of beer, feel free to bring one along—you can keep it on the bus until you’re ready to fill it up.
The lineup of breweries is subject to change, but the classic tour starts at Category 12 with a behind-the-scenes tour of the brewing process. After you've seen how the beer is made, line up four, four-ounce pours of Category 12’s beers from the brewery’s boldly-flavored draft list.
Following your time at Category 12, continue to Vancouver Island Brewing, which leans towards fun, super-drinkable beers. You’ll try four more beers before heading to the last stop of the evening, Swans Brewery, where First Nations art adorns a laid-back tasting room. This 3-hour beer tour concludes at the original departure point, close to some of Victoria’s top restaurants and activities.
