Weird beer and classic pizza with a heavy metal twist.

Jackknife’s founder, Brad Tomlinson, is a local brewer who is proud of his roots in the region. He loves to work with local farmers and producers with the goal of bringing Okanagan terroir into focus through his beers — often incorporating wine grapes or grape must to make hybrid “grape ales.”

His approach is best described in his own words:

Jackknife is the swirling cauldron of creative locals. We’re the ones ripping through forests and shredding in hazy garages. Our wizards and witches meld local lore and elements with favourite pieces of Nordic brewing history while worshiping at the altar of the sacred unholy circle, zza. You can only find our beer in our dungeon so swing on down and slay a slice and murder a beer with us!

The delicious results can be unapologetically weird, but one thing that is decidedly not weird is Jackknife’s handmade pizzas, which might very well be the best in the Okanagan. Make sure to stop in on a Sunday when they serve up Detroit-style deep-dish square pan pizza.

Fun Fact

Jackknife Brewing brews all their beer with Norwegian kveik yeasts. The centuries-old strains were cultivated by Nordic farmhouse brewers and are known for their vigorous fermentation and unique flavours.
