About Vancouver Island Brewing

Through loyal Island support, we began to grow and add to our portfolio of fresh handcrafted local ales and lagers. In 1995, we 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.

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

Our handcrafted, all natural beers have won numerous international awards. It is our 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 we hold true to this tradition by supporting many local organizations and events.
