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.
You can become an owner for as little as $250!
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.

Merchandise (umbrellas, glassware, hats, t-shirts, etc.) is spread throughout the room.

Beer fridge was well stocked.
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.
White stout was like a light coffee lager. Chili milk stout had a hint of spice at the end.
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.
Another decent brewery but none of their beers really distinguished themselves from the rest.
