Lighthouse Brewing Company

A progressive and forward thinking microbrewery based in Victoria BC. Lighthouse Brewing Company is celebrating their 10th anniversary this year (2008). The first decade of success saw Lighthouse bring home a Gold medal with each of its four brand lines in the ever-growing Canadian Brewing Awards field. We are confident that Riptide Pale Ale (our newest beer) will shortly follow suit. We have also won two CRD Eco-Star awards for Outstanding Achievement in Source Control and continue to be one of the most conscientious local manufacturing businesses in the city.

Wine Islands Vintners Association

Here on Vancouver Island, where rain, sun, wind and sea have such presence and diversity, we are able to make unique wines that are a reflection of particular conditions that exist nowhere else. Two characteristics are common here. Families form the core of tradition and almost everywhere you will see their impact on the crafting of wine. Moreover, almost all Island winemakers came to their vineyard dream from some other profession, be it stonemason, teacher, doctor, manager or accountant. Thus you'll find both eclectic wines and a touch of eccentricity in their makers.
