In these strange times, it's important that we stick together by staying apart... so consider raising a perfect pint of local craft with a friend over FaceTime or Zoom or Houseparty or whatever app you're using to socialize! Our local breweries need us!
We've compiled a list of local (and some slightly further aflung) breweries and cideries that are offering local delivery as well as contactless curbside pickup.
These fine establishments have had to make big adjustments to make sure their online stores are working well and to get new delivery and pickup systems in place, so remember to be patient.
Support for our breweries helps support a mutually desirable outcome: that they all can keep making tasty brews for a long time to come!
If you would like us to add your brewery or cidery to this list, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org

Our story began over 100 years ago in Lille, France when three brewers joined forces to create a brewery that would grow to become one of the most important in the country. In 1985, the descendents of the original founders opened their first neighbourhood microbrewery – long before anyone had even heard of a “microbrewery” or “craft beer”.
We are a small, BC-owned company, making cider the old-fashioned way. We start with real BC apples from old growth orchards, deep in the Okanagan Valley of British Columbia. Our authentic dry ciders are natural and real – from apples that are crushed and fermented, then filtered fresh clear and pure – much like a premium quality wine.
Based on a story told by my French Canadian grandfather when I was a boy, the Flying Canoe is an interpretation of the French saying and story called “Chasse-Galerie”. Flying Canoe Hard Cider is made in the region of Ottawa/Gatineau near where the legend is based, so we thought that we might share the mysteriousness of the tale.
