As Victoria’s craft beer specialty store, we load our fridges and shelves with an ever-changing selection of the best local and international brews.

Craft Beer Tasting Notes: May 15

Wow, the sunny weather has really arrived! Lots of lighter, fruitier beers have shown up, too. We received a couple of wonderful sours in cans from Luppulo in Vancouver that really hit the spot on sunny days. You can put some together in your own custom 4pk and get 5% off at the till. This way you can try a little bit of a lot of different beers.

Hey, we’re finally caught up and ahead of the curve (for once!) with our tasting notes this week. We had a surprising number of bombers arrive this week—some especially interesting and tasty brews from around BC and beyond. And it’s a little bit of everything—IPAs, sours, lagers.

Craft Beer Tasting Notes: April 20

Looks like we’re finally heading toward lighter-bodied seasonal brews, even though it still seems like spring is only just now upon us. Plenty of new options in stock. If you’re a fan of the gose style, a slightly salty and tart wheat beer, you’ve gotta try the new Field House Sour Wheat Gose, which is one of the tastiest interpretations of the style we’ve ever had. It’s incredibly refreshing.

Craft Beer Tasting Notes: March 27

Where did the month go? Our big move, culminating in us opening the doors at 304 Cook St. on Wednesday, March 14, shifted our focus away from some of our regular routines. Now that we’re up and running, we can get back to some of the tasks that were neglected. New product, of course, has continued to pour in, so we have an extra-long lineup of tasting notes this week.

Opening day of our new store is fast approaching, though we don’t have an exact date yet. If you’re in the neighbourhood, you may have noticed some cosmetic changes outside, including changes to the landscaping, as well as bright new bricks leading to the front entrance. We’re getting excited to open the doors to the public soon.

Craft Beer Tasting Notes: Jan. 22

We’re going full speed ahead on our move to our new location at 304 Cook Street, but that means that things are a little chaotic around the store at the moment. We’re still getting new product, though January does tend to be a little slower. And even though we have dismantled and moved our fridge to our new location, we still have some chilled product in some temporary fridges.
