A farm-to-tap craft brewery and gourmet eatery nextled between fields of barley and sea.

Located in charming Nanoose Bay between Nanaimo and Parksville Qualicum Beach, this farm-based craft brewery is a good-for-the-soul kind of place where friends and families can gather together to enjoy simple things done really well. A family-owned-and-operated business, the team at Rusted Rake does everything from planting and harvesting barley to brewing and pouring the beer in their beautiful tasting room and outdoor patio setting.

The Rake also has a superb kitchen that serves a wide range of dishes using locally sourced ingredients first and foremost.

Brewing the beer here is industry veteran Dave Woodward who has established a reputation for excellent, award-winning beers at several other BC breweries over the past 20 years.
