New Mainstays

We're thrilled to present a new era of CANOE beers.

Canoe Mainstays

On December 7th, we launched five out of our eight new beers. 

Motivated to progress with the craft brewing scene, our brewmaster, Daniel Murphy was inspired to create something for all taste buds.

“We have tailored our beer portfolio to include as wide a range of varying palates as possible. They favour subtle complexity, structure, and balance that will appeal to craft-beer newcomers, and experienced enthusiasts.”
-Brewmaster Daniel

To complement the bright burst of flavours, the new branding was inspired by geometric designs of traditional canoe paddles that references not only the brewpub’s namesake, but the local cultural ties of cabin and camping lifestyle, and adventure. In addition to being sold at Canoe Brewpub, the new lineup of beers will also be available at liquor stores throughout the region including Cascadia Liquor (Quadra, Langford and Uptown locations). 

Our revamped beer program consists of eight solid brews. Four of the new beers, “Mainstays” are permanent fixtures. 

The remaining four are available seasonally as a part of the ‘Windward Series’, our brewmaster’s unique single-batch creations.

British IPA: a mild, malty IPA with a crisp hop bite. Our British-style IPA is a throwback to the 'original IPA' produced in England, to be shipped to the Indian market.Our version uses UK Maris Otter Malt as a base, hints of caramel malt and exclusively British hops, used from early and late kettle additions to dry-hopping. These hops have an earthy, muted character (as opposed to the fragrant, citrus notes of most US-grown hops).
