Twa Dogs Brewery at Macaloney’s
Caledonian Distillery

EST. 2016 | Victoria

This brewery and distillery on the outskirts of Victoria embraces its Scottish background wholeheartedly.

Graeme Macaloney was born in Glasgow, Scotland, where he developed a love for both whisky and beer. When he moved to Canada he set himself the goal of building a place where both would be produced side by side. Macaloney’s Caledonian Distillery & Twa Dogs Brewery is just that place. Twa Dogs is a reference to 18th century Scottish poet Robbie Burns; indeed, each beer’s name comes from a Burns poem as well. 

Within its spacious facility is a beautiful tasting room where you can enjoy the full range of beers or a taster’s flight of whiskies, which are also available for sale in bottles. Take an entertaining tour to learn more about the brewing and distilling process. You can even enjoy a beer right inside the brewery and watch the brewers as they work. There is also an outdoor patio beside the tasting room.


Twa Dogs' tasting room is dog-friendly so feel free to bring your furry loved ones in with you. And those who bring in their pooch get Happy Hour pricing on the in-house brewed beers.
