Beermas brews are limited and may not last long. We cannot guarantee that all beers on the tap list above will last all day. First come, first serve. We’re open 11am – 10pm. And don’t worry, all our regular beers will be back on Sunday.
The friends and family of Greg Evans will be joining together to remember Greg’s life and legacy. Spinnakers has graciously offered to host this event in the upstairs pub, and will even provide a round of beers and some food. We will have an Open Mic for people to share a memory or just express their feelings.
(There will not be a memorial at St. Barnabas any more — just this event at Spinnakers.)
Please spread the word. Feel free to invite people to RSVP here or just share the info by email or phone.
Come celebrate one of our most unique and delicious beers: The HollieWood Oyster Stout.
This beer is brewed with the addition of fresh, Vancouver Island Oysters to add a rich, creamy body, and briny minerality on top of a bold malt backbone.
We will also be brewing a small batch and serving wort boiled oysters, oyster pate, and smoked oyster crostinis. Come experience the brew, taste the fresh oysters, and try them side by side with custom casks and one off versions of the beer!
Starts at 4PM on Saturday, January 19th. No tickets required!
What’s more exciting – the first new beer release of 2019, or the first cask event of 2019?
The answer is BOTH, and we have you covered. That’s right! The 2019 Commander Imperial Stout will be released on January 24th and we’re having a cask night at the brewery to celebrate.
The Commander Imperial Stout is a dark roasted stout featuring a deep, layered malt profile with flavours of white oak and whiskey. The Commanders of years past have won a combined 4 BC Beer Awards, and Brewmaster Cole promised this year’s will keep the legacy alive.
The 2019 Commander Imperial Stout will be available in bombers and on tap at the brewery!
Join us in tapping a special edition cask of our new 2019 commander imperial stout, with a secret, special twist! The cask will be tapped at 6pm and poured until we run out!
Here’s what we’ll have at the Commander Cask Night & Launch Party:
Free Commander 2019 samples.
Commander 2019 bombers.
Commander 2019 Growler fills and pints.
One time only Commander cask!
Beef Dip With Commander infused au jus.
We also have a limited quantity of past Commander vintages available for purchase.
Join us in tapping a special edition cask of our new 2019 Commander Imperial Stout, with a secret, special twist! The cask will be tapped at 6 pm and poured until we run out.
