Those are some fantastic finds! Makes me nostalgic for the island, I used to live out there. Never found any of those, but they were all ones that I wanted.

Eye poppers for sure. I'm glad to see our northern kin folk collecting embossed beers. The vast majority of Canadian bottle posts here from are for ACL and Deco sodas.
A lot of Canada doesn't really have much in the way of nice embossed beers like these. BC is the only province to really get that many of them for some reason. Other provinces will have one or two here and there, but the vast majority of beer was sold in slick bottles. I think there are some provinces which don't have a single embossed beer out there.

They are really nice, love the colour with the sun coming through. I collect some Vancouver island bottles and really like them as well. I have a Phoenix bottle but not with the embossed bird, yours is a beauty. The Union brewing has been on my list for awhile now. My favourite beer that i have is actually really plain, it's a large bottle and just says BC Breweries at the side near the bottom but it's a beautiful ruby black and i love, love the colour.
