We started brewing in 2019, although the founders began brewing almost a decade before then. We originally started out as Sapperton Brewing, hoping to be located in New Westminster. However, the timing didn't work, the stars weren't aligned and frankly, we weren't ready. In many ways, we are lucky that we waited for the right time and place, as we are so thrilled to be where we are now!
We acknowledge that our brewery operates on the traditional, ancestral and unceded territory of the kʷikʷəƛ̓əm (Kwikwetlem First Nation). We thank the kʷikʷəƛ̓əm who continue to live on these lands and care for them, along with the waters and all that is above and below.
We are proud members of the BC Craft Brewers Guild and the Canadian Craft Beer Association. We support various charities and organizations including:
Canadian Mental Health Association
KPU Diversity in Brewing Scholarship
Share Society (Tri-Cities)
