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.

First Descent Northwest IPA

A classic hop-forward Northwest IPA. A clean malt profile sets up an assertive citrus, pine and floral hop bouquet, balanced with notes of lemon, pear and apricot.

Hippie Katcher Kolsch

A German style ale traditionally brewed in the Cologne region. Our interpretation of this style features cool fermentation and an extensive lagering period to produce a clean and subtle flavour profile with hints of pear and mandarin orange.  A crisp, light beer that goes down easy after a long day at the office or out in the woods.

5.4% ABV 14 IBU

Nebenstrasse Marzen

1st Place, 2017 BC Beer Awards.  A clean, smooth and complex malty lager featuring bready notes and a light toasted character. German noble hops contribute mild herbal, spicy and floral aromas to balance the characteristic rich maltiness of this Märzen. Pours a deep copper with a dense off-white head.
