The GOODS from Cannery Brewing Company
Penticton, BC | Cannery Brewing, R&B Brewing, Townsite Brewing and Old Yale Brewing have something very exciting brewing and they can’t wait to sing about it from the hilltops. These 4 BC Craft Brewers worked together with CBC Radio 3 and four awesome Canadian bands to launch Canadian Band Beer. It all started with the tweet #CDNbandbeer, from CBC Radio 3 host, Grant Lawrence. From there the hashtag trended on twitter and inspired a flood of replies from CBCMusic.ca followers who submitted beer names based on the names of great Canadian musical acts. Ben Didier of CBC Music designed a set of fake labels and before long Old Yale Brewing Company’s Jeremy Sibley was recruiting members of British Columbia’s vibrant craft beer community to help make them a reality.
Let the legacy of Canadian Band Beer begin! Every Friday, from May 17th until June 7th, a new band beer will hit shelves in BC. Old Yale Brewing Company of Chilliwack, British Columbia is proud to pay homage to the legendary Vancouver punk band D.O.A. and has created the Classic Brown Ale, D.O.Ale. This beer launches first on May 17th. R&B Brewing Company out of Vancouver, British Columbia has created the You Say Barley! We Say Rye! Dark Rye IPA, after the new-wave punk band You Say Party! We Say Die! This launches on May 24th. Townsite Brewing Inc. of Powell River, British Columbia is proud to present the Belgian Pale Ale, Said the Ale. The beer is named after Vancouver indie-rock band Said the Whale. This beer launches May 31st. And finally, Cannery Brewing Company out of Penticton, British Columbia has created the Pink Mountainhops Maibock, a hoppy Maibock named after Vancouver rock ‘n’ roll band Pink Mountaintops. This final beer launches June 7th.
The first CBCMusic.ca Canadian Band Beer series will be available in private British Columbia liquor stores. Each beer is being sold separately in 650 ml bottles and will run until the middle of July. The project is in partnership with CBC Music. For more information please click here.

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.
