Opened in April of 2022, Bayview Brewing Company is a community-oriented, inclusive company.
Jonny Ludtke and Alfred Elviss started home brewing in 2017 and after excellent results in home brewing competitions, decided to open up the brewery with brothers Rod and Geoff Alsop in 2018.
After years of planning, hoop-jumping, and renovations, Bayview opened in April 2022. The beer lineup features classic ales such as a blonde, pale ale, Saison, west coast IPA, and hazy IPA. Their specialty is creating interesting sour beers, particularly dessert sours, lending to Jonny’s 25+ year career as a chef.
The food program features an eclectic, fresh selection of fusion cuisine with no deep-fried food. They have partnered with several local farms to keep the food as fresh and local as possible. In addition to beer, they also offer Salt Spring Wild Cider and Unsworth Vineyards wine, as well as non-alcoholic beverages including Phillips Soda, Iota Beer, Sparkmouth Mocktails, and Sparkling Water.
