Here's the thing

Kettle River Brewing Co is a nano brewery located in the North End of Kelowna BC. We do very small runs of beer and can proudly say we’ve brewed over 150 batches since opening our doors in July of 2016. We are small (there's four of us), we are independent (it's our business), we have a strong DIY-ethos (we built everything ourselves) and we have big ambitions (to make some of the top beer in BC).

Our founding partner, Russ, who grew up in Grand Forks on the Kettle River (hence the name) believes that just like the river itself, beer should be meaningful and worth cherishing. We agree with him.

At Kettle River, we have a unique brewing setup. This is mostly because we made it ourselves. And what some may see as small, we see as agile. At any given time we'll have dozens of different brews bubbling into being. Our mini micro system, or glorified garage kit, offers up the chance to ferment 16 different 200L batches, giving us the opportunity to indulge ourselves and try new things. We also have a barrel aging program — did we mention we have 24 barrels? We're cooking up all kinds of weird things, so stop by and see what's brewing. 


FLAGSHIP BEER

With over 150 brews on our little kit we're finally starting to narrow down our recipes. Today we proudly offer three flagship beers that are floating around bottle shops in the Okanagan. 

Loose Canoe IPA – 7.1% Cut-loose and head upstream with our bubbly, golden IPA. It's richly hopped and the tasty citrus and resin aromas will get you where you need to go.

Under The Weather Stout - 6.1% Bunker-down and brave the storm with our smooth, dark ale. Whispers of chocolate, coffee and cream will keep you toasty and warm during the chilliest evenings.

kettle river discovery series

DISCOVERY SERIES BEER

On the way to creating our Flagship beers we did a lot of discovering. And we are continuing to do it. Our discovery series are all of our recipes, tests and seasonal brews that we are trying out at our shop. They will be limited and ever changing so get down to the shop to try one out.

endangered SERIES BEER

This is our single-batch one-off, specialty beer. It's stuff so limited and so rare that it has become a reminder of how precious our namesake is to us. A portion of each bottle of this series sold will go towards the preservation of the Kettle River.

We now proudly offer our beer in several locations around the Okanagan.
