About Us

squamish's local brewery

Since 1996, we've been brewing traditional craft beer in the beautiful, rugged Squamish setting. Our brew pub has all of our micro-brewed ales and lagers on tap, or available to go out of our fridge. Come by, grab an award-winning beer and step outside on our patio to take in the Stawamus Chief rock climbing face. We're conveniently located off Highway 99, just 45 minutes north of Vancouver and 45 minutes south of Whistler, BC. Call us today and we'll be happy to answer any questions at 1-778-654-3358!

Our history

Proudly brewing award-winning ales in Squamish for nearly 20 years, we owe much of our early success to John Mitchell. He co-pioneered North America's first modern craft brewery at Horseshoe Bay back in 1982. Known as the "grandfather of micro-brewing in Canada," Mitchell helped design Howe Sound Brewery in 1996 and worked as our very first brewer.
