Our group of friends were visiting town to celebrate birthdays, and wanted to do something fun and celebratory, and the brewery tour was perfect. It was very easy to arrange the tour, and our guide Elton was very knowledgable and fun, everyone had a really great time. The distillery add-on at Twa Dogs was great, too. Very much recommend taking the tour!

We were lucky enough to book with 24 hours’ notice as this tour is often sold out. We opted for the add-on whisky tasting which was also excellent. The 3.5 hours flew by with Elton (guide who is a cicerone - like a sommelier but for beer). Highly recommend this tour as you will learn a lot and taste wonderfully different craft beers produced right in Victoria.

We had a wonderful time with Elton touring 3 different breweries in Victoria. He is extremely knowledgeable. The breweries we toured had excellent beer (the samples were plentiful) and really welcomed us into their facilities. We would highly recommend!!

Couldn't recommend this enough. Went on this tour with 12 other fellows on stag party. Elton was an excellent host + had very good knowledge of brewing for each location on the tour. Had a great time + sampled some excellent beers + whiskeys.

Our kids gave us a tour for four people as a Christmas present. We invited another couple along and did this tour today. And what an experience it was. Elton knows so much about the craft brewery process and introduced us to three different breweries, one of which is also a distillery of whisky. WOW! What a day. We invited another couple to join us and they were a wee bit concerned that four hours was too long. It was not. We learned so much and tasted so much. The only rules, according to Elton, were to try everything and, secondly, to try things three times separated by about 40 seconds. So, if you’re wanting to know more about how beer is brewed, how so many flavours are now marketed and how to just simply enjoy your day, then this tour is for you! If coming in on a cruise and you’re looking for a way to spend an enjoyable afternoon, this tour is for you. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Elton was an absolutely incredible host! He made the tour very personable and genuinely took the time to make every stop enjoyable. We would highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Victoria that is looking to learn more about the process of creating beer and developing their beer palates. Thanks again Elton :)

8 of us went on a tour with Elton. First stop was a brewery, second a brewery and distillery and the last was a cidery. We had a fantastic time and Elton answered all of our questions. Knowledgeable and professional with lots of fun added in. Great day

This past Saturday our family group met Elton of West Coast Brewery outside at Swan's Hotel & Brew Pub downtown Victoria. From the time of our initial meeting with Elton we assured us of a good evening ahead - a statement he surpassed. We first headed to the market square where we experienced the new craft brewery Whistle Buoy - we live in Victoria and we're surprised to learn of this brewing company - and what a great surprise it was. One of the beers was a cranberry beer...whoa..and I actually enjoyed it! We had a couple of other unique selections offered by one of the owners - I believe Isaiah. Elton too had a tasty surprise for us, while we were there. (Treat from Glen Wood Meats) From there we headed to Varsha - where we had unbelievably Great East Indian Food paired with some local beer samples Then we had a special treat during our walk to our final stop (which you'll have to find out yourself on the tour) then back to Swans...where we sampled some beer right from the VAT !! Elton provided a wonderful evening for us and we scored big points with our visiting family, all who enjoyed. Thanks Elton...we'll be back!
