We thoroughly enjoyed our Tour. Our Tour Guide (Bree), did an excellent job. The tour was both Entertaining, Educational, and just plain Fun. On top of all that, it was not expensive at all. It was so good, that I would do it again if I were in Victoria. High Five to Bree for doing such an excellent job.
This tour was a really great deal - lots of good drinks for the price! My fiance and I enjoyed it a lot. The staff were very friendly and knowledgeable. For our tour it was just the two of us and our guide. We walked around the small brewing and distilling areas and were talked through the process on how to make both beer and whiskey. The tour itself was short and sweet, and along the way we sampled 4 beer tastings and 2 whiskey tastings. We also were given two bottles of beer straight off the bottling line. Afterwards we stayed and bought some additional whiskey flights and chatted with the staff. The only thing to be wary of is that the meeting point is the visitor centre at the brewery, not at the visitor centre in downtown Victoria. My fiance and I made this mistake, but it was very easy to switch our tour time around. The brewery is about a 30 minute bus ride from downtown, so very easy to get to.
The tour was informative and interesting. We enjoyed several libations....all were tasty and effective! Only wish they had hammocks for a little nap afterwards.....:- This company is doing a splendid job bringing the area some awesome beer selections and delicious whiskey!
