This lakeside brewery and tasting room is the ideal place to learn more about craft beer right at the source.
The Kelowna Beer Institute is a locally owned brewery that provides a place where people can learn more about craft beer right at the source. Along with its on-site brewery the Beer Institute has a solid kitchen serving up pizzas made with spent grains from the brewing process, beer-salted kettle chips, salads, pretzels, and other snacks. The brewer uses this relatively small brewing system to experiment with new styles and recipes, so there is always something unique and interesting on tap. Regular events, including Taco Tuesdays and Cask Thursdays, keep the calendar full as well.
Founded as the Tree Beer Institute, this brewery changed its name to the Kelowna Beer Institute in 2020. Tree Brewing was Kelowna’s first microbrewery, founded in 1996, but its production facility closed in 2018.
