Canada’s First Brewpub Damaged By Fire

VICTORIA, B.C. – Canada’s first brewpub, Spinnakers Brewpub, was damaged by fire yesterday. The cause of the fire has not yet been determined but it is believed to be caused by a fireplace. Much of the roof and second floor were destroyed by the fire and the remaining is suffering smoke and water damage.

Batallion chief Bob Jones told CTV, “We saved the building, so we are happy about that. It was looking a little scary there for a bit.”

Full extent and cost of the damages have not yet been determined. Repair and reopening plans will be posted on Spinnakers Twitter and Facebook as they become clear.
