Canoe Brewpub is a great spot that you will never find unless you are looking for it. located just past the Victoria thrift-store and social-housing district is a gem of a micro-brewery. With pretty much every beer on the menu making an appearance on the Canadian Brewing Awards roster it is needless to say that this is a must on the Victoria Brewery list. If you are hungry, the food is actually pretty good as well.
Canoe is located in an old Hydro building that has a spectacular Post-and-Beam ceiling. this high ceiling allows for a clear view of the non-traditional dispensing system for the taps. In the picture to the left have a look at the tanks above the bar. That is right you are drinking straight from the tank at this hidden gem of a brewery.
The beer is great, the music is live on Thursdays and the patio is spectacular. Canoe Club has the complete package when it comes to brewpubs. Great Beer, tasty food and an unparralleled location Canoe should be next on your bucket list when it comes to BC breweries.
