Fodor's Review

The lofty windows of this power station–turned–brewpub open onto one of Victoria's best waterfront patios, overlooking the kayaking and ferry action on the gorge. The casual, locally sourced menu runs from such high-end pub snacks as chickpea fritters, mussels with chorizo, steelhead trout, and crispy duck confit, to flatbread pizzas and good old fish-and-chips. Choose from the adults-only brewpub or the all-ages restaurant—both have water-view patios. And try the beer—the Dark Ale, Pale Ale, India Pale Ale, and other signature creations are brewed the old-fashioned way. You can even see the vats from the pub. Reservations are accepted in the restaurant section only.
