Traveling or Vacationing for beer – does it get any better?

Victoria BC offers several great options for the lovers of the age old liquid delight.

Victoria even has a whole week dedicated to the “brew.”


Victoria Beer Week  March 3- 11, 2017 a nine-day festival of events highlighting a broad selection of BC craft breweries. The week features a wide variety of events that pair BC craft beer with local Victoria food vendors, with a clear focus on showcasing quality BC craft beer and educating beer enthusiasts. Smaller tastings, seminars, and micro-events happen at various venues throughout the week. 

Hotel Zed Victoria is offering a special discount for Beer Week. Use promo code BEER when booking (subject to availability to book now) 

Can’t make beer week, fear not we have the solution. Recently Elton, the owner of West Coast Brewery Tours, took the Management team from Accent Inns / Hotel Zed on one of his fantastic tours. This was so much fun we asked him to write a piece about what folks can expect on one of his tours.


If you like the brew have a read of Elton’s description of what you can expect on a tour:

Calling all “hop heads, malt maniacs & lovers of all things local!

With 12 breweries, 4 distilleries and 2 cider farms all within a 15km radius of the city center…. aren’t you just a little curious to know what all the hype is about?

Victoria’s brewing history dates back to the mid 1850’s when German immigrant William Steinberger changed his vision of fortune by means of mined gold, to fortune by means of brewed liquid gold sold to many a thirsty miner of Fort Victoria. Fast forward to present day where numerous breweries and a craft beer revolution later has given rise to the latest adventure in fun and flavour..…beer tourism!

Enter West Coast Brewery Tours founded in 2013 and driven by a simple mantra…Drink fresh, drink local, drink craft! When it comes to producing exceptional small batch libations, Victoria seems to be abundantly blessed with more than it’s fair share of talented people producing incredible craft beer, cider and distilled spirits.

Hopping on board (pun intended!) a West Coast Brewery Tour is one way to experience Victoria’s amazing craft scene, have a few laughs, a whole lot of beer and undoubtedly gain friends for a lifetime (or at least while your buzz lasts!) Cheers!
