Our Story

We are a family owned and operated Craft Brewery located in Esquimalt, Victoria, B.C.

Crafting Great Beer For 25 Years

On August 17th, 1998, Lighthouse Brewing Company rolled the first few kegs of our first beer, Race Rocks, out to bars around the city. In 2004, our first packaged products went out to the Victoria public. This makes us one of Victoria’s oldest operating Craft Breweries, and we have had wonderful community support since our first day over 25 years ago.

We have known since that first day that we need to pride ourselves in what we deliver to the public, and so we bring you products not simply derived from water, malt, and yeast, but also derived from the love and commitment to quality Craft Beer that permeates through our team. We use only the finest ingredients that we can source, either internationally or locally, to delight and thrill your palette. All of our solid waste from the brewing process goes to local farmers as nutritionally dense feed supplement for chickens, pigs, and dairy cattle.

We are more than a Craft Brewery – we are a family that offers you a taste of our passion for Craft Beer, and we love sharing life’s moments with you. From a fishing boat in the Salish Sea to the West Coast Trail, and anywhere in between, we’re honoured to be there with you however we can. Cheers!

About Lighthouse

Our Family

Our Craft Brewery team is, in our humble opinion, one of the best in the industry. With less than 25 employees, we are a small business and more importantly, we are each other’s family. We pick each other up when we are down, and help each other every day. Our brew team helps packaging, and ideas for new brews comes from every place in our organization. Our team is passionate, and you can taste our commitment in every sip of our product. We truly believe we have the #BestStaffEver, and welcome you to come visit the team in our Tasting Room to see for yourself the passion we bring to Craft Beer every single day.
