Meet The Maker: Vancouver Island Brewing

MeetTheMaker.jpg

Founded in 1984, Vancouver Island Brewing is celebrating its 35th Anniversary. The brewery recently undertook a series of rebrands, updating the tasting room and entire product catalogue with exciting new flavours and styles. Their new lineup combines the classic technique of long-tenured Brewmaster Ralf Pittroff with the new school approach to craft brewing of Production Manager Danny Seeton. These brewers are paying homage to their history with classics like Piper’s Pale Ale, while experimenting with modern recipes and labels that are as delicious as they are eye-catching.

All brews are now vegan friendly, with the help of a centrifuge that filters their beers without the use of fining agents made from animal by-products. Along with the switch to vegan-friendly production, Vancouver Island Brewing is also seeking kosher certification. Ralf and Danny are working towards innovation, quality, and technical precision on all their beers.

Passion and inspiration are the driving forces behind Vancouver Island Brewing. They never compromise on quality and pride themselves on offering a selection of beer that can accompany you on all your adventures. Whether you prefer the classics or are always on the hunt for the next new style, Vancouver Island Brewing has something for you!

 

MAGIC HOUR GRAPEFRUIT GOSE

2.4% ABV | 7 IBU | 6 SRM

An extra light radler built on the foundation of a Gose, rather than a lager. The moderate grapefruit is supported by a clean lactic acidity and a pinch of salt. This sessionable sour fruit beer allows you to bring a glass of the summer wherever you go. Citrus, Sour, Salty.
