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.

Saison

A silky smooth, refreshing, Belgian style farmhouse ale suitable for any time of year. The unique strain of yeast adds spicy, peppery, fruity, and citrus notes to this ale. Pours a rich orange hue topped by a thick, white head.

El Dorado Golden Ale 

3rd Place, 2017 BC Beer Awards  A fruity, thirst-quenching Golden Ale. The clean malt backbone and delicate bitterness are complemented by pear, watermelon and mango notes from a generous addition of El Dorado hops late in the brewing process.
