He’s been pulling 100-hour weeks for the past four months and, now, Byron Vallis is finally ready to pull the tap handles at Coquitlam’s first craft brewery.

A partner in Mariner Brewing with Wim Vander Zalm — Vallis’ former employer at Art Knapp Plantland in Port Coquitlam — he’s preparing for its grand opening on Aug. 22.

Five frosty possibilities will be on tap: a northeast India pale ale, a dry-hopped cream ale, a sour weisse, an amber ale and a Scottish ale.

“It’s a really diverse lineup for opening day,” the Dr. Charles Best secondary school grad said, “and we have so many more ideas. We already have the ingredients for a white IPA.”
