Ford Econoline: Meet "Black Betty". This 14 passenger + driver has side rails to make climbing in and out much easier. Our Econoline has plenty of power and has been well taken care of.

In BC it is illegal to drink in a vehicle regardless of passenger capacity. Black Betty gets passed around to cover tours when we are overbooked, so if you see her it's your lucky day! It means that instead of canceling your tour we sent Black Betty to rescue the day!
Nestled in a one-time mechanic shop, the Gladstone Brewing Co is the definition of the traditional brewing of the Vancouver Island Breweries. Its tasting room is adorned with various parts of car and memorabilia that fully embraces its heritage. During their initial run, they were only capable of accommodating the customers of their tasting room as well as some of the local restaurants. Nowadays, this is one of the prime cider houses that offer some of the premium aged lagers in Victoria. People can also take a trip and enjoy the different things that they have to offer through a Vancouver Island Brewery tour.
