Phillips has grown from humble origins to become BC’s biggest and most well-known craft brewery.
Back in 2001 when Matt Phillips wanted to open his own brewery, all the banks and credit unions turned down his loan requests. Undeterred, he maxed out all the credit cards he could get his hands and started it that way. At first. he did everything himself — brewing, packaging, delivering — and even slept at the brewery. Since then, Phillips has grown into what is arguably the biggest success story in BC craft beer history. This “Legend of Matt Phillips” is all true, and the best thing about it is that the brewery’s success is all based on great beer that is consistently well brewed without cutting any corners.
Phillips’ place within the community is cemented through its creative relationship with music events like Rifflandia Festival and its own Phillips Backyard Weekender which draw thousands of music-loving, craft beer consuming attendees every summer.
