At Barn Owl, you’ll find wisely brewed beers served in a lovingly restored historic barn.
While Kelowna’s Lower Mission neighbourhood has long been known for its award-winning wineries, Barn Owl Brewing has been drawing beer lovers to the historic waterfront community since opening in 2019 with its locally-made craft beers. Housed in a lovingly restored heritage barn, Barn Owl is a unique rustic retreat, complete with a vaulted loft that oozes bucolic charm, featuring an impressive river rock fireplace, antique furniture, shuffleboard, board games, and plenty of seating. Meanwhile, the brewery’s newly expanded patio is a great place to soak up that Okanagan sun.
The brewery was founded by three beer-loving friends—a doctor, a teacher, and church worker—and uses an innovative BREWHA brewing system to make the most of its brewing space. Along with the beer you can enjoy a kid-friendly selection of snacks, and if you’re looking for something more substantial, DunnEnzies Pizza is right across the street.
The barn was built in 1927 by farmer Allen Surtees and was one of the largest buildings in the area for decades. The historic Surtees House across the street was the family’s former home, and was originally built to house the Ritz Café, which operated while the Kettle Valley Railway was still in operation before the First World War.
