• Victoria Ale Trail

    Pair Victoria’s Ale Trail With The Vancouver Island Golf Trail

    Beer in Victoria, and on Vancouver Island, has its roots in the early 1840’s. This sense of history still thrives in the many breweries and brewpubs throughout Vancouver Island.  Every beer is brewed with respect to tradition, but with a modern touch.

    Victoria has several craft breweries from Vancouver Island’s first craft brewery, the multiple award-winning Vancouver Island Brewing on Government Street, to wide variety of other large and small craft breweries.

    These craft breweries are considered to be a critical part of the local scene, offering an authentic taste of Victoria. Victoria’s breweries are definitely local with all its breweries within walking distance around the city’s harbour and downtown core.

    Take A Brewery Tour

    Visitors to Victoria can follow a loosely defined, self-guided Ale Trail and visit one or all of these incredible craft breweries and sample such unique brews. We recommend you start your tour at Vancouver Island Brewing on Govenrment street and see where the afternoon takes you.


    More ideas on how to put your own Ale Trail trip can be found on BC Ale Trail’s website.

    This (Bear Mountain Resort – Mountain Course, on the Vancouver Island Golf Trail) is my new favourite golf course – I just love the layout. It’s really one of the prettiest golf courses I’ve played in my life, I’ll come back here on vacation, it’s that good.

    I always treat golf courses as how many poor holes there are. This (Bear Mountain Resort – Mountain Course, on the Vancouver Island Golf Trail) is a very good one. There’s not one poor hole on this golf course.

    Great job on the initial booking and subsequent changes requested. Easy check-in at the golf courses and the hotel made the trip hassle-free. Nice touch with the driving directions and discounts at recommended food and beverage establishments. Will definitely recommend your service to friends and business associates.
