Cannery Brewing’s 10th Anniversary Celebration Cannery Brewing began with a dream. Brew master Terry Schoffer, along with partners Ron and Patt Dyck, founded the company in 2000 with the simple dream of making good beer with natural ingredients. They purchased Penticton’s old Aylmer Fruit and Vegetable Cannery, and began production. Their first batch of beer was made on April 1st, 2001 and kegs were soon being sent to local restaurants. As demand for their beer grew, Cannery Brewing launched their 8.5 litre Party Pigs—perfect for any gathering, especially if the words “Play-Offs”, “Cup”, “Bowl”, “Major” or “World” are on the party invitation. The partners continued developing new products and today their beers are found throughout British Columbia and Alberta. The Cannery brews over eleven beers, including Blackberry Porter, 360Degrees Lager, Apricot Wheat Ale, Squire Scotch Ale, Wildfire IPA, and the low alcohol No Justice Pale Ale. Their recently-released, winter seasonal beer, Maple Stout, goes so well with pancakes that avid campers have been known to stockpile it for summer camping trips. Cannery Brewing’s commitment to natural ingredients resulted in a partnership with local Okanagan Chef Rod Butters to create Apricot Pail Ale from Rod’s own wild apricots. Made specifically for the 2011 Gold Medal Plates in Vancouver, it’s available exclusively at Kelowna’s RauDZ restaurant www.raudz.com. Cannery Brewing also achieved North American recognition after winning a Gold medal for Squire Scotch Ale and a Silver Medal for Naramata Nut Brown Ale at the 2010 Canadian Brewing Awards. Cannery Brewing offers free daily tastings at their brewery and tours are available by appointment.http://www.cannerybrewing.comBeer & CiderOkanaganpenticton SHARE VIA: Facebook Twitter Pinterest Written By: Guest Writer We get many people writing guest articles for us, as well as past contributors.
