Tofino Brewing is a must-visit after a day of surfing at Cox Beach. The brewery is on the way back to town from Cox Beach and is a great place to stop for a pint with friends and locals or to grab a few cans and bottles to take back to your vacation rental.
Tofino Brewing's beers are pretty widely available across British Columbia, but it always more fun to drink the beer directly in the brewery, and there are number one-offs and seasonals available in the tasting room.
Their Kelp Stout is probably their most famous brew. I personally don't care for salty beers, but I recommend that you give it a try. Take a bottle home to pair with some local fresh sea-food.
Like many tasting rooms, the food menu is very limited. Mostly just pepperoni sticks and other snacks.
