Beer with a view.
Shore Line Brewing’s excellent location across from Gyro Beach (arguably the best beach in Kelowna) allows its customers the opportunity to enjoy amazing views of the sun setting above the mountains across Okanagan Lake.
Shore Line Brewing was a long time coming, but well worth the wait. Its owners, a husband and wife team, conceived of the idea for the brewery back when there were only two breweries in Kelowna. They incorporated the company in 2016 and signed an agreement to be part of The Shore development project in 2017 before it was built. Construction delays meant it was late 2019 before the brewery equipment could be set up in the space, but when they were finally ready to open the brewery, the pandemic arrived to delay their plans even further. In the end, Shore Line opened in May, 2020, one of only two breweries in the Mission district south of downtown Kelowna.
The brewery’s large capacity means it can serve locals in its tap room or on its outdoor patios, and also distribute packaged beer all the way from Fernie to Vancouver Island. Head Brewer Dylan Stus, who hails from the Prairies originally, worked at Nelson Brewing for a while before joining the team here. He helped set up the brewery equipment and created the beer lineup, which includes classics like lagers and stouts along with cutting edge contemporary styles like sours and hazy IPAs.
The brewery’s restaurant serves creative comfort food made with fresh local ingredients, including pizzas, tacos, chicken sandwiches, and fish and chips that many customers say is the best they’ve ever had.
