Kettle River Brewing Co – Kelowna

By Mike @mikescraftbeer

Kettle River Brewing Co in Kelowna has been open for a little while now and is well worth a visit.

Kettle River Brewing Co – Kelowna

Currently they are open Friday to Sunday as it is as far as they can stretch their beers at their current capacity. Beer not sold by Sunday night is bottled and sold the following week.

The tasting room is very cozy. The wood and corrugated steel with the mix of colours seems to be very welcoming for whatever reason. When I stopped in they had a Table Saison, Table Brown, Wallonian Saison, Pale Ale and an IPA. When you stop into the brewery though this will be very different. Every week they have new beers on tap as their brew house is quite small and they only do small batches. They use a 200L system with 16 fermentors leaving tones of room to play. The way things are being run currently you may never have the exact same beer twice. One good thing is that the beer is tasting quite good. It is a great touch that the front of the building opens up with large doors giving the space an open feel. They even have a few tables outside.

You can see the brew house through the windows at the back of the tasting room but I was given a tour of the space. Heading to the back you first see their 200L brewing system. Inside their cooler you will find their 16 home made fermentors that look like something that Nasa would send to the moon. Next you can find a photo of their barrel aging program. From what I understand currently all barrels are wine barrels and are hosing all kinds of creations. If they every get a forklift they will be able to stack they barrels and do even more experimenting.

Kelowna may not have known they wanted this brewery but they should know this by now. They are making some really tasty beer and have set up a great space to enjoy that beer. Its time for you to check it out if you find yourself in Kelowna!
