We know you’ve got questions. We’ve rounded up some of our favourites below — see if one fits the bill.

Beer has food value, is that enough?

But seriously, yes we’ve got basic beer snacks – think soft pretzels, pepperoni sticks, and other nibbles that we source as locally as possible.

At any time you are more than welcome to bring in takeout from wherever you feel like, however we would kindly ask that you make an effort to clean up after yourself when you do bring in your own food.

Finally, if you do want to find a restaurant for a complete meal, the bar staff will happily suggest their favourite places where our beer is also served.

Yes, provided they are the same volume as our growler options. Make sure clean and try your best to remember your lid!

They sure can. We love well behaved kids who are happy to sit and watch mom and/or dad have a pint. We have a small selection of sodas or juice for them, too.

YES!  we have a patio during the warmer months, mid-April to mid-October.

Heads up, due to our odd-ball provincial liquor serving rules regarding patios that are not directly connected to the building (ours is across the city sidewalk), a Backroads server MUST carry your beer to the patio.  So, if you want to sit on the patio you may do one of two things; 1) just go sit down on the patio and a server will come take your order.  2) you can purchase your beer inside at the bar as per usual and then ask us to bring it outside.  But please, please do not carry your beer out to the patio on your own or vice versa.

I know, I know, who comes to a brewery and orders something other than beer?  But it happens, so we do have a small selection of BC cider and BC VQA wine for those that can’t have beer or don’t want beer.  If alcohol isn’t your thing, or you’ve got some minors with your group,  we also have sparkling water, juice,  and craft-sodas available.

Sometimes we’ll take reservations for larger groups, but generally we won’t take them if you’re  just trying to score a prime seat on a friday night.  Message us at if you are in fact looking to bring in a larger group.

We will occasionally host a private events.  Please dating is he seeing someone else to discuss dates, times, pricing, etc.
