Island Breweries Win at B.C. Beer Awards

 Many come to Victoria for the scenery, but now more than ever Victoria is becoming a food and drink destination. Did you know that we have more restaurants per capita than any other city in Canada? It comes as no surprise then that we’re now making a splash when it comes to brewing beer. After all, we take our dining pretty seriously!

This year’s B.C. Beer Awards took place just a few weeks ago, with breweries from around the island winning 21 awards out of the 108 given out! A big winner was Sooke Oceanside Brewing, a newer brewery to the local scene but one definitely worth the drive.

There are also a number of breweries within downtown Victoria worth visiting: Canoe Brewpub, Phillips Brewing & Malting Co, Driftwood Brewery, Vancouver Island Brewing, Lighthouse Brewing Company, Hoyne Brewing Co and more.

If tasting a few local brews sounds like a good afternoon for you, then you’re in the right place with plenty of restaurants to indulge in afterwards! And if you need help finding any of your destinations, our friendly concierge will happily point you in the right direction.
