    Food Pairing

    This is a thirst-quenching beer, with a milder hop and malt profile. It goes well with very hot food, like blackened fish, chili, hot wings and tacos. This is a great ale for the summer barbecue.

    Our Bottle

    This re-closable bottle, known as a “pot-stopper”, was widely used in Europe and North America prior to the 1950s. Our new combination cap is an innovative design that allows closure by both crown and swing caps. It can be re-used and meets our green packaging objectives.

  • Howe Sound Brewery

    Over a century ago breweries dotted British Columbia’s landscape. Hop farming flourished and the Squamish Valley Hop Ranch supplied hops to the British Empire. With the advent of Prohibition, the number of breweries and hop farms dwindled. By the 1970s only a few large breweries remained.

    In 1980, BC’s John Mitchell and Frank Appleton pioneered North America’s first modern craft brewery at Horseshoe Bay on BC’s spectacular Howe Sound. This began what has become known as the “craft brewing renaissance”.

    In 1996, John Mitchell helped design the Howe Sound Brewery and worked as our first brewer developing our initial recipes. Known as the “grandfather of micro-brewing in Canada”, we are proud of his ongoing relationship with our brewery. Today we continue to brew in the craft style using unfiltered 100% barley mash. We pride ourselves in brewing a diverse selection of flavorful, well-balanced ales. We invite you to enjoy the experience.
