The history of brewing here goes back to 1859, when Victoria’s first brewery, Victoria Brewing opened initially at Swan Lake and later moved its operation to Government and Discovery.

Victoria is also home to Canada’ first contemporary brewpub, Spinnakers, which has led the craft beer revolution since 1984.

If you’re looking to try a new brew, the new Craft Beer Map from the Downtown Victoria Business Association, local author Joe Wiebe and Tourism Victoria, directs beer lovers to taphouses, breweries and tours around town

The Craft Beer Map is a comprehensive map of taphouses in downtown Victoria plus local and regional breweries, cideries and even a meadery. Find your copy at the DVBA’s office in Centennial Square or Tourism Victoria’s Visitor Centre.
