Project Description

Want to drink award-winning beer?
We’ve got that on tap.

Small-batch, hand-crafted ales & lagers brewed in the heart of Nelson on Baker Street

Our multi-award winning brewmaster and co-owner, Mike Kelly, believes in making beer that adheres to traditional styles, ingredients and principles. High quality and consistency are hallmarks of his 20+ year career in commercial brewing. Our beers are always changing as we rotate offerings representing the world over, including lesser-known and forgotten beer styles.  If that’s not your thing, we also keep a consistent core of more recognizable styles — all brewed with Mike’s attention to detail.

Below you’ll find our current offerings that are either on tap at the brewery, available at liquor stores across the Southern Interior of BC, or both!
