Phillips Brewing in downtown Victoria is a favorite brewer among locals and visitors alike. Featuring clean, modern facilities and a bent toward supporting local artists and nonprofits, Phillips Brewing offers tours with plenty of tastings, for which they appreciate you donating a little dough to one of their favorite charities. There are 51 beers on tap, and you can get six-packs and growlers to go, along with all sorts of brewery- and beer-related souvenirs. Come on in with some time to spend looking at the delightful artwork and trying out some beer samples, then take a few of your favorites home as gifts or for your personal collection.
Brewery tours are most Tuesdays, Wednesdays or Thursdays at 4pm, or Fridays and Saturdays at 2pm. They max out at 10 people and fill quickly, so make sure to call the brewery to reserve your spot. They're $6.00/person and include samples from our taster bar and a tasting glass.
