Swans is one of the most popular eateries and drinking establishments in Victoria and its reputation for quality beers on tap is well deserved. In 2006 Swans, founded by the late philanthropist Michael Williams, was voted Canadian BrewPub of the year.
Although the pub and hotel are named Swans the brewery is named Buckerfield’s after the feed company that was housed in the building before Williams bought it and converted it to the fine establishment it is today.
At the recent Canadian Brewery Awards Buckerfield’s Brewery won a silver medal for its Appleton Brown Ale. This is a ‘London’ style and compares favourably with all of the brown ales I have sampled in my many visits to London.
Swans is well known for its live entertainment, fine artwork and daily special offers. A variety of its Buckerfield’s brews on tap and you are welcome to mix and match.
