Vernon's only craft beer destination: where the beers are cold, the food is delicious, and the good vibes run high.
Located in the heart of downtown Vernon, Marten Brewing features 14 delicious craft beers on tap, all brewed in house.
The beautifully renovated space has lots of games, pool tables, foosball, and adult-sized Jenga to let the good times roll. There is always something fun going on at the brewery, including karaoke every Friday night, along with Open Mic nights, live bands and DJs.
The food menu is diverse and extensive, including specialties like house-smoked chicken and brisket to go along with the excellent beer brewed on site.
Back in 1985, Vernon became one of the early epicentres of microbrewing in British Columbia when the Okanagan Spring Brewery opened there. Over the following decade OK Spring expanded its range throughout the province, introducing many communities to “microbrew,” and by the early ‘90s, Okanagan Spring Pale Ale was BC’s quintessential craft beer — before we even called it “craft.” Eventually, the operation grew so large that it was bought by Sleeman Breweries of Ontario, which in turn was bought by the Japanese brewery, Sapporo. Because it lost its independence, we don’t really call Okanagan Spring a craft brewery anymore, but the big operation is still there in Vernon, employing many locals and churning out a lot of beer. Cheers to that!
