Craft beer here is just average. Lacks flavour and served much too cold. The porter was lifeless and drab. No head and bland. I complained and the brewmeister actually came down to talk to me and asked my advice, strange but true. They were very courteous though and offered me and my buddy free pints and tasters.

Good to find a brewpub in a small town, nevertheless the choice is limited and not exactly exciting; the beers are served too cold. As usual, too many waitresses around, and they don’t even seem to care for deserving the "tip"..

Visited December 22nd, 2006. Gorgeous location, great atmosphere - nice use of space and creation of distinct sections with a family restaurant area near the fireplace, a small sports bar and a separate eating area of gossipers on the second landing. Full exposure of the brewing equipment, modern interior with exposed cedar beams everywhere. Five beers on tap and attractive servers. My Beef Dip ($11) was very good though somewhat small (7") however the "Porter au jus" was unbelievably delicious. I could have drank it as a stew. Only real complaint is the beers are served WAY TOO COLD - around 4 degrees Celsius which means spending 20 minutes waiting for them to get to a temperature where flavour comes out.

Craig Street Brewpub is a delightfully classy pub and a great addition to the beer world of Vancouver Island. The bar came from a 1906 Montreal hotel. The owners also bought all the original paneling from the same hotel and it has been used throughout the establishment. Reproductions of many of E.J. Hughes’ paintings hang throughout the building giving the pub a strong West Coast feeling.
Brewer Chris Gress was a Victoria home brewer who trained with Sean Hoyne. Sean, the brewer at Canoe in Victoria. Try the Craig Street Toolbox for $10.00. This is a sample of each beer, and it came with a glass of peanuts. Incidentally, customers are welcome to get beer at the self-serve bar. There is seating, including the rooftop patio, for 220.
