WHAT WE LOVE NOW

Lov­ingly called “The Fitz,” this pub is a cozy spot where lo­cals, beer nerds and couch pota­toes con­verge. Decked out with comfy so­fas, com­mu­nal board games and a new pa­tio, this is the per­fect place to sip a craft beer, fresh-pressed cider, or In­sta-wor­thy cock­tail. When you en­ter, look straight ahead at the colour­ful chalk­board that lists what’s cur­rently on tap. If you don’t know your Fug­gles from your War­locks, Day­dreamer IPA from your Magic Lake Porter, ask for a sam­ple of what­ever looks good or opt for a taster tray. The team here is pas­sion­ate about beer and the eight ro­tat­ing taps high­light lo­cal brew­ers and fes­ti­val award-win­ners that they’re ea­ger to tell you about. With the sum­mer sun in full force, the après hike/bike fruity op­tions like the Fug­gles and War­lock Strawberry Wit, Steel and Oak Roselle and Coast Moun­tain Brew­ing Juice Box Wit are pop­u­lar choices. They also have 10+ ciders in­clud­ing their favourites the No­mad Pinot Noir Bar­rel Aged Cider and Salt Spring Is­land Bit­ter Orange & Rose­mary Ap­ple Cider, a San­gria that comes packed full of fresh fruits from the lo­cal Farm­ers’ Mar­ket, and a Cae­sar that sat­is­fies that af­ter­ac­tion salt crav­ing with a huge slab of beef jerky. Open daily from 2 p.m., this lo­cals’ favourite gets busy, es­pe­cially if there’s a tap takeover, quiz night, or a reg­u­lar is cel­e­brat­ing a birth­day. Be pre­pared to try some­thing new, share a ta­ble, and join an im­promptu game of Scrab­ble.
