Longwood’s second location has its own tasting room & picnic patio with unique beers on tap.
The second location, the “Longwood Brewery” opened in 2013 to boost the Longwood brand reach across BC by introducing packaged and keg products. Featuring a line up of 6 core beers ranging from a continental Pilsner to an Imperial Stout and 4 rotating seasonal beers, there is something for everyone at the growler bar. Our seasonal picnic patio offers a comfortable, pet and family friendly environment with the option of bringing your own snacks as there is no onsite kitchen.
With a focus on being “small farm friendly”, Longwood partners with many local farmers for a wide range of ingredients, resulting in an obsessively local product that reflects the true terroir of Vancouver Island. In fact, 75% of all the barley Longwood Brewery uses comes from central Vancouver Island and over 90% of the hops used are sourced from within BC!
In 2020, The Tyee Magazine named Longwood Brewery “the standout in 100-mile brewing in BC”. “Longwood describes itself as obsessively local and at any given time will have several entirely local beers available. Here are five recent brews: Island Time Lager, The Big One IPA, Independent Pilsner, Quince Tart Lager and Pinot Noir Wild Ale.”
