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. Victoria Caledonian Brewery & Distillery is just that place. Within its spacious facility is a beautiful tasting room where you can enjoy the full range of beers or taste a custom blended guest whisky (until Caledonian’s own whiskies are ready to serve). All the beers are produced under the Twa Dogs brand, which is a reference to 18th century Scottish poet Robbie Burns; indeed, each beer’s name comes from a Burns poem as well. 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.
