We've Got It Good! If you're from the Island you know that We’ve Got it Good! It’s not just a catchy slogan, it’s the Island way of life. One that we take seriously here at Vancouver Island Brewery. Whether it’s fishing for the big one on the open ocean, carving the slopes of Mount Washington or smacking the ball at the local Golf Course. Whatever, whenever, if you’re enjoying one of those “we’ve got it good” moments, chances are a Vancouver Island Brewery beer is never far from reach.

We had a tasting at Vancouver Island and really enjoyed talking to the bartender about the local beer scene and the Canadian beer scene in general.

We had a really nice time touring this brewery. Very inexpensive tour. Only $7 each. It included 4 beer samples each so my husband and I were able to sample 8 kinds. Our tour guide Jessica was very informative and hopes to become a brewmaster. She is very passionate about the craft and the science involved in becoming a brewmaster... More

We reserved a spot on the 1 p.m. tour pm on Apr 23. It's a group tour, so you never know who will be joining you. We were joined by an already drunk bachelor party.

The Vancouver Island Brewery has a large tasting room with many beers on tap to try. They do tours as well, but we didn't get a chance to do that as we arrived too late. If you can I recommend trying their Hermannator - one of their best beers for sure.
