Twa Dogs Beer

Twa Dogs beers are brewed in Saanich without pretense or filtration, using only the finest ingredients. Like the Robert Burns poetry that inspired many of them, our beers are crafted with finesse while unafraid to embrace bold and distinct flavours. Delve into our beers here.

Our Story

As a wee lad in Scotland, our founder Graeme Macaloney had a summer job in a local whisky factory, There he was encouraged to train in fermentation, becoming a ‘doctor of fermentation engineering’. Upon arriving in Victoria, Graeme was inspired to bring traditional Scottish whisky making together with the best of west-coast craft brewing.

Today, with the support of over 700 other passionate whisky and craft beer enthusiasts from coast to coast (our Founder-Owners group), Graeme and our team are proud to bring you the Macaloney’s Island Distillery & Twa Dogs Brewery!
