Victoria Caledonian Distillery and Twa Dogs Brewery

Our third and last stop was at the Victoria Caledonian Brewery & Distillery. Both the distillery and their brewery, Twa Dogs, is under one roof. They claim to be Canada’s first equity crowdfunded brewery-distillery.

We dropped in on a Saturday afternoon (around 4:00pm) and it was packed. Their tours ($20.95 to 49.00 per person) are extremely popular.

The tasting room is spacious with three large communal tables to sit at along with a few seats at the bar.

Their happy hour (Monday to Friday, 3:00pm to close) has to be one the best I’ve seen in a long time. Only $5.00 pints and flights!

Super adorable that they allow dogs inside; we saw two chilling with their owners.

Flight ($9.00 for 4)
DSC00747We tried the white stout (seasonal), chili chocolate milk stout, parting kiss bourbon barrel age and rapture of folly cherry sour.

DSC00748

White stout was like a light coffee lager. Chili milk stout had a hint of spice at the end.

DSC00749

Bourbon ale was the smoothest we’ve sampled for a barrel aged beer. B liked the cherry sour the most but I thought it was just so-so.

DSC00745

Another decent brewery but none of their beers really distinguished themselves from the rest.
