About Small Gods Brewing Co.

Small Gods Brewing Co. is a small, family owned and operated brewery designed to fit into the community of Sidney by the Sea, located in SET,TINES on the territories of the W̱SÁNEĆ people. Sidney, BC is a charming seaside village beside the Swartz Bay ferry terminal that connects South Vancouver Island to the mainland (and Vancouver), and is only a 20-minute drive north of BC’s capital city of Victoria. Sidney is also known as Canada’s “Book Town” for having the greatest number of bookstores per capita in the country.

We take inspiration from the world of literature and host monthly events, including author readings, literary trivia nights, and a Book Club. Our Taproom has a selection of books for kids and adults and we strive to provide a family-friendly atmosphere where everyone is welcome to stop by, satiate their hunger with an artisan sandwich, and have a beer with friends, family, or with their favourite book.

Our core purpose is to create a safe, sustainable, and inclusive community where people thrive through food, drink, and literature. This purpose drives everything we do: from ensuring that our taproom is fully wheelchair accessible to making inclusive hiring a priority for our company; offering meals for all palates (vegan and vegetarian options) to guaranteeing that every patron will find a beer style, wine, cider, or cocktail that they want to drink on tap; providing an inclusive selection of children’s books for families visiting the Taproom; and building our own beer family through collaborations with a diverse array of breweries across the province, such as Field House (Abbotsford), Slackwater (Penticton), Twin Sails (Port Moody), House of Funk (North Vancouver), and Whistle Buoy (Victoria).
