SPECIALTY LIQUOR STORES

Beer

Victoria has many local craft beer manufacturers.  Some of these are carried in Government and/or Private Liquor stores, some only sell their products at their source or their own private liquor stores.  You can now get ‘Growlers*’ at certain breweries that you can fill over and over again!

*Growler

64 U.S. fl oz (1,892.7 ml; 66.6 imp fl oz) Growler

A growler is a glass, ceramic, or stainless steel jug used to transport draft beer in the United States and Canada. They are commonly sold at breweries and brewpubs as a means to sell take-out craft beer. Rarely, beers are bottled in growlers for retail sale. The exploding growth of craft breweries and the growing popularity of home brewing has also led to an emerging market for the sale of collectible growlers.
