Vancouver Island’s growing number of breweries, cideries and distilleries add to the region’s reputation as a top-notch culinary destination.

Unassuming breweries handcraft traditional and new flavours, infusing elements of the island's landscape and ingredients. Brewpubs offer their creative take on favourites and serve them with tempting west coast cuisine. Join a tour and tasting at Tofino Brewing, Gulf Islands Brewing and Fat Cat Brewing. Toast to the centuries-old history of beer in the Craig Street Brewpub, a restored English-style pub with an antique bar.

Ciders and spirits are other time-honoured drinks being produced here. Merridale Estate Cidery's sprawling orchard produces eight varieties of artisan ciders. Island Spirits' premium vodka and gin are intended to be sipped and savoured.

Looking for more? Victoria is one place to find a fantastic selection of craft beers, spirits and ciders.
