Casual atmosphere for relaxing

West coast craft beer is our focus with local, fresh, and fabulous food served in a casual atmosphere.

Though much of our beer is made right here in Victoria, some just steps away; we also seek out unique and interesting offerings from all over the Pacific North-West, and sometimes even further afield. Our line-up is ever-changing, so come and see what’s on tap today!

Our service is British pub-style counter service. Come up to the bar to order and we’ll take care of you. If you’re ordering food, we’ll bring it out to you.

Known to most of our customers in Victoria as just “The Drake” we pride ourselves on serving what we feel, is the best of craft beer.

For those who are curious, our name is a homage to the original Drake Hotel and Beer Parlour that opened on the corner of Store and Johnson in 1954, the first to open after prohibition was lifted. It closed 20 years later, in 1974.
