Breweries in Kelowna have some of the best craft beer in BC. While Kelowna may be chiefly famous as an unrivalled wine country with their iconic Kelowna Wineries, the rich soils of Kelowna are no one-trick pony. Blessed with unique nutrient compositions hailing from the ancient history of geological upheaval, glacial retreat, and volcanic turmoil, this part of the Okanagan fosters tastes that can’t be found anywhere else in the world.
Add to this a farming community steeped in traditions and passions over a century old, a cutting-edge art scene constantly pushing the boundaries of innovation across every medium, and a glut of gastronomists intent on providing the perfect pairing for any beverage you can imagine, and you have fertile ground for, well… just about anything.
Kelowna farmsteads have their roots in orchard fruits, making it the perfect place to sample the very crispest, most refreshing summertime ciders. The local distilleries too are adept at bringing out the very best tastes from their neighbouring farms and on-site agricultural projects. Even a burgeoning craft brewing scene has recently effervesced, drowning you in a sea of hoppy options for a perfectly pulled pint. No matter where you choose to grab a glass, rest assured that the unique flavour profiles and artistic inspirations of this vital part of the Okanagan will have crept into every recipe.
