The GOODS from Cannery Brewing Company
Penticton, BC | In Germany, Maibocks are traditionally consumed in the lusty month of May. This May, reach for the newest Maibock to hit the rocks from Penticton’s Cannery Brewing. Aptly named the Stumbling Goat, this dry-hopped Maibock, is the latest limited release beer in the Artisan Creations series from Cannery Brewing.
Ian Dyck, Craft Beer Maverick at Cannery Brewing explained, “Our new Stumbling Goat is a strong, dry-hopped Maibock. It is a full-bodied German-style lager created with classic German malts and noble hops. We launched this malt-forward beer at the Okanagan Fest-of-Ale and we received fantastic feedback from craft beer lovers. It is a full-flavoured lager with a surprising hop complexity that makes it a very interesting and drinkable beer.”
Dyck continued, “We launched a seasonal Maibock a couple of years ago and since then, people have asked us repeatedly to brew a new Maibock. We’re pretty stoked to launch this new dry-hopped Maibock now, as the weather is starting to heat up here in the Okanagan.” At 6.5% alc./vol., this strong Maibock has the drinkability and strength to make even the sturdiest goat stumble.
Like the other beers in Cannery Brewing’s Artisan Creations series, the Stumbling Goat label is an artistic creation designed to match the artistry of the beer. Dyck explained, “A ‘Bock’ is a male mountain goat and we wanted the goat image on the label to be strong and reflective of the complex characteristics of this beer. We were pleased to work with the very talented Okanagan-based artist and designer Myron Campbell (www.notsosimpleton.com). Myron is a Governor General’s Gold Medal award winner, a professor at the University of British Columbia: Okanagan Campus and a craft-beer lover! It was exciting to have Myron create this goat and design the label for this Artisan Creation.”
Cannery Brewing’s Stumbling Goat is a single batch release that will be available at private craft-beer focused liquor stores and restaurants throughout BC and at select liquor stores in Alberta until it is gone.

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.
