Loving these two local bottles that I found today. First time finding a non broken Victoria Brewing. Yay.

It must be difficult finding places to dig. I lived in James Bay Area and remember when I took scuba diving lessons at Ogden point a lot of old bottles have been found along the break wall. I would go to any construction site where they were digging downtown Victoria. Now I’m thinking about London drugs and Safeway and going to crystal pool. Is the wax museum still still kicking it ?
I went to Glen Lyon but don’t hold it against me.

Great finds! I never managed to find an internal thread bottle when I lived out there. Yours even has the stopper too, which is even better. I'd be interested in seeing a pic of the stopper, I'm a lot less familiar with those than I am with the bottles. Nice find on the beer too, you're lucky to be in an area where embossed beers are relatively common. Out here our beers are practically all slicks.

No more wax museum.
I haven't done any ground digging. All my bottles have come from the water. I need to find some digging spots!
And yes I've heard that about Ogden point too. Apparently was a garbage dump spot for years.
