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.

Rent a car with a GPS, there's a national car rental agency not far from the ferry terminal in Saanich. You had to pay for samples. You can also go to Phillips brewery down the street as well.

Yes, you can go and get a flight of beers (4 x 4 oz pours)and they have a self guided tour. They always have around 8 styles of beer pouring. Tours are on the weekends. 250-361-0005
