#161. Penny Farthing, 2228 Oak Bay Ave, Victoria
This seamless pub took forever to get approval from the municipality of Oak Bay, who doubtless feared it would lower the tone. When it first opened it wasn't allowed to have televisions, billiard tables, or laughter.
The first of three pubs owned by the VicPubCo that we would visit this day.
Brian and I both ordered a Service 1904 Scotch Ale. Like most Phillips beers, it tasted okay, but excelled at marketing itself.
