Our brewery is dedicated to local and global brewery partners producing high-quality, small to medium batch beer for the Canadian and North American markets.
We provide our brewery partners direct access to National and International markets with fresh product, brewed to exacting specifications under the supervision of your Brewery’s Brewmaster. As a partner brewer, you’ll have the opportunity to showcase your product to consumers the way it is meant to be enjoyed, fresh. Our brewery provides an opportunity to innovate, develop recipes and launch seasonal brands in market through our pilot brewhouse. You can expand your distribution through our sales network, as well as create unique and rewarding customer experiences in our taproom and event space.
Craft brewing has never been so high-tech. Our open concept brewery consists of an advanced 50 HL Brewhouse for larger production, while our 20 HL pilot system can be utilized for recipe development, one-off brews and smaller batch seasonal beers. The Brewhouse and all production equipment has been custom manufactured by NSI Newlands, one of the finest manufacturers of beer equipment in the world, based in Abbotsford, British Columbia.
The quality and efficiency showcased by our 24-head rotary canning line is the innovation of Krones and gives us the ability to package a variety of can sizes at a rate of over 200 cans per minute.
Have a look at what the canning line looks like in action:
Specially designed and tailored to Brunswick Bierworks, our Gruber kegging line provides draught beer packaged to the highest quality. We have the ability to package both steel kegs and plastic one-way kegs of all fittings for all markets. Our direct distribution network creates an opportunity to showcase your core brands and seasonal brands to bars and restaurants with fresh draught beer.
