Victoria Caledonian Brewery & Distillery – Victoria

Earlier in the Summer I checked out Victoria Caledonian Brewery & Distillery the maker of Twa Dogs Beer located in Victoria BC on Vancouver Island.  I thought I had lost the photos but I luckily found them.

When you arrive at the brewery and distillery it is a pretty impressive sight.  Walking through the doors you find a small tasting room and a larger store with their merchandise and whiskey.  This is not a brewery lounge but you can sample any of their beer and their whiskey that they have at the time.  I personally sampled 4 beer and enjoyed them although I can not remember exactly which ones I tried at this point.

The brewery and distillery does guided tours but I was not able to go on that tour unfortunately.  I did find out that they have a 50HL brewhouse from DME back in Charlottetown with 4 – 100HL and 3 – 50HL fermenters from Specific Mechanical in Saanich.  The distillery side of the business has a 5,500L wash still and a 3,600L spirit still from Forsyths, Speyside out of Scotland.  This is a really good looking brewery with amazing looking stills.  I really enjoyed checking out the system and I always enjoy sipping on their beers.

If you have not been to the brewery then its time to make your way there.
