The GOODS from Cannery Brewing Company
Penticton, BC | Join the craft beer revolution at the Kettle Valley Station Pub in Penticton and have a beer with Joe Wiebe, author of the bestselling book, Craft Beer Revolution: The Insider’s Guide to B.C. Breweries (Douglas & McIntyre). Guests are invited to drop by on Wednesday, July 3 between 6pm to 9pm to meet Joe and check out his new book. Hooked on Books will be at the event selling copies for $19.95, which includes a pint of beer and some appetizers.
In Craft Beer Revolution, Wiebe documents the fascinating craft beer movement in B.C., profiling its history, the breweries themselves, the people behind the kegs and casks, and the colourful stories. The book is filled to the brim with recommendations for beer tasting tours around the province, lists of the best brews that B.C. has to offer, and entertaining trivia that will make beer geeks salivate.
To write this book, Joe Wiebe undertook what he called his “Craft Beer Odyssey”—a road trip around the bottom half of the province visiting as many craft beer hubs as possible. On this trip, he found that British Columbians are embracing craft beer like never before. It may, in part, be wrapped up in an ever-growing movement to consume high-quality, local products. However, there is more to craft beer than its superb ingredients. Garrett Oliver, the brewmaster at Brooklyn Brewery, writes that “craft brewing universally involves boldly flavoured beers coupled with a defiantly independent spirit.” In Craft Beer Revolution, Wiebe celebrates this independent spirit that has overwhelmingly soaked into B.C.’s brewing scene—one that is embraced by the three Okanagan breweries who have come together to create a special, exclusive, cask-conditioned beer for the event.
This revolutionary “Collabor-ale” from Oliver’s Firehall Brewery and Penticton-based Cannery Brewing and Tin Whistle Brewing is called “The 3-Brewers Plot.” Sounds intriguing, doesn’t it? It is a Belgian Wit-style beer that takes on a secondary fermentation with Valencia oranges soaked in Cointreau, peppercorns and dark honey. It is finished off with Amarillo hops. This unique beer marks the first time these three Okanagan breweries have worked together on a collaboration ale.
Wiebe explains, “It’s very exciting that these three breweries have worked together to create their first-ever collaboration ale as a tribute to the launch of my book. Craft breweries in B.C. work together all the time to grow their industry and bring more awareness of the wonderful beers that are being crafted around this province. This is a great example of that. I am also pleased that this book launch is being held at the Kettle Valley Station Pub. Martin Lewis, the General Manager, is such a strong advocate for craft beer. It really is a craft beer revolution.” For more information about Joe Wiebe or his book, go to www.craftbeerrevolution.ca.

ABOUT CANNERY BREWING
Located amidst the breath taking scenery of Penticton, British Columbia, our micro-brewery produces individually hand-crafted fine ales and lagers of unmistakable complexity and balance. This flavour is the result of wonderful combinations of premium quality malted grains and carefully chosen Pacific Northwest hops. Cannery Brewing is the Small Brewery with Big Flavour!
All of our beers are created with carefully selected and scrutinized ingredients. We use the finest hops and malted barleys and only the finest yeast strains. Our brews are all natural. They contain no preservatives and are not pasteurized. You get a fresh, crisp taste every time.
We brewed our first batch of beer in the Old Aylmer Fruit and Vegetable Cannery in Penticton on April Fool’s Day, 2001. It did seem like an auspicious day for the start of a brewery that would be dedicated to enjoyment (not to mention the odd practical joke!). In the beginning, we brewed and sold beer in kegs for local restaurants, pubs and clubs. After that came the wonderful 8.5 litre Party Pigs of beer that flew out our doors. (Our pigs do fly!)
In 2011, we celebrated our 10th anniversary and our 1000th brew! Today we sell our beers in 650ml bottles, 355ml cans, on tap, in Party Pigs and we recently launched a new Growler program. A Growler is a reusable, glass 2L bottle that can be filled at our brewery.
AWARDS & ACCOLADES
Over the years, we have been fortunate to receive a number of different awards at various beer festivals throughout the country. We were thrilled when we won a Gold Medal for our Squire Scotch Ale and a Silver Medal for our Naramata Nut Brown Ale as part of the 2010 Canadian Brewing Awards.
