Frank Appleton started it all. He dreamt up, then engineered and built BC’s very first Craft Brewery, the Horseshoe Bay Brewing Co. He then went on to build numerous other breweries, imparting wisdom to a generation of would-be brewers on how to become Brewmasters, Sean Hoyne included. So please, let us all raise a glass to Mr. Frank Appleton, and say, Thanks!

As you tentatively peer over the edge (of your glass) towards the unbroken surface below, sticky jungle aromas of passionfruit and mango steady your resolve. You’re going to do it, you’re going to hop right in. Idaho 7, Talus, Mosaic; canon ball, backflip, leap of faith. All good choices. Don’t think, go! You crash beneath warm waves of tangerine and mandarin, and as you break the surface, catch your breath, smack your lips, you know that you’ve only just begun. Let Shine On’s tropical haze transport you to endless summer days. We triple dog dare you to take the plunge!
Waves of tropical fruit, a citrus silhouette, and a mirage of Pacific Northwest Pine.
FEATURED MALTS: Canadian Pilsner Malt, Flaked Wheat and Oats

In 1948 a young, educated entrepreneur named Jaroslav Foukal was forced from his home in Czechoslovakia, fleeing for his survival as Communism swept the country. Landing in Montreal with little more than a suitcase, resiliency and personal fortitude, he began the long journey of building a successful life. Fast-forward two generations and his grandson, Antoine Foukal, is now our Head Brewer. Thank you Jaroslav!
Svec (Shoemaker) is our interpretation of the Czech answer to Anton Dreher’s famous amber hued Austrian lagers. This Polotmavy Lezak, which translates to ‘half dark’, balances malty notes of toffee, brittle and dark raisin bread with the unique spicy character of Saaz hops. Strikingly bold yet elegant and refined, it’s the beer described by J Peterman as “the perfect vehicle for striding along the cobblestone chicanes of Prague’s shoe disctrict.. Sturdy, handsome, luxurious.”
