A unique beer experience in an idyllic location.

Founded in December 2016 by Michael Garratt and Annette Witteman, this small cottage brewery is a must-visit destination for beer lovers.  

Michael worked part-time for years selling Okanagan wines to restaurants in Vancouver and Whistler while home brewing in his spare time. Annette, meanwhile, was a home-based artist and mother to their two children. Eventually, they decided that Michael should turn his hobby into a side business so they converted her studio into a brewery. All of the labels and merchandise are designed by Annette and their kids help out with bottling and other duties as needed. In 2020, Michael left his wine sales job to work at the brewery full-time, which allowed them to expand their tasting to four days a week (Thursdays through Sundays from 1-5pm). 

Michael loves to incorporate local ingredients in his beers, especially in the Forager Saison, which features locally harvested ingredients that change throughout the year, including salal berries, stinging nettles, dandelion and burdock, rose hips, rose petals, rock weed, bull kelp, sea asparagus, and grand fir tips, just to name a few!

Plan your next Gulf Island getaway on Mayne to get a taste of this brewery’s delicious beers.
