About Vancouver Island Brewery

Vancouver Island Brewery was Vancouver Island’s first craft brewery. From humble beginnings in a small warehouse in Central Saanich in 1984 they began by handcrafting a small selection of draught only products for pub customers on Vancouver Island.

Through loyal Island support, they began to grow and add to their portfolio of fresh handcrafted local ales and lagers. In 1995, they grew out of our original operation and made the decision to build a new brewery at 2330 Government Street in Victoria B.C. where the brewery still stands and operates today.

They have grown from just 6 employees in 1984 to over 40 today and all of their brewery employees are “Islanders” with true Island roots. They have developed a 30 year tradition and connection with Vancouver Island. They are proud of our history of supporting numerous local businesses, charities, and community events over the years. Part of the brewery’s philosophy will always be to make a positive impact and commitment to our local community. It is their intention to ensure the community stays vibrant, growing and long lasting.

Their handcrafted, all natural beers have won numerous international awards. It is their philosophy to brew all natural, world-class beers that reflect life on the west coast; clean, fresh and natural. Historically, breweries have played an important role in their communities and they hold true to this tradition by supporting many local organizations and events.
