OUR HISTORY

WHEN WE BEGAN WORKING ON THE IDEA OF STARTING A BREWERY, IT WAS A LONG SHOT TO SAY THE LEAST. SMALL, HYPER LOCAL PRODUCTION BREWERIES WERE A RARITY IN BC AT THE TIME AND OUR SURFY PRIORITIES HAD, IN NO WAY, PREPARED US FOR THE COMPLEX WORLD OF CRAFT BEER. BUT, ARMED WITH ZERO EXPERIENCE AND A COMICALLY SHOESTRING BUDGET, WE WENT FOR IT ANYWAY. TOFINO BREWING CO. OPENED IN APRIL 2011 WITH TWO BASIC IDEAS IN MIND: TO BREW GREAT BEER AND BE A POSITIVE ADDITION TO THE TOWN WE LOVED. OVER THE PAST DECADE PLUS, TOFINO BREWING HAS GROWN ORGANICALLY INTO THE LOCAL FIXTURE IT IS TODAY. WE ARE INCREDIBLY PROUD TO BE PART OF THE TOFINO EXPERIENCE FOR LOCALS AND VISITORS ALIKE AND HOPE TO CONTINUE TO BREW BEER FOR THE COMMUNITY FOR YEARS TO COME.

PRODUCTS OF OUR ENVIRONMENT

THE BEER WE BREW IS A NATURAL EXTENSION OF THE ENVIRONMENT AROUND US. THIS CONNECTION INFORMS AND INSPIRES THE CREATION OF OUR AUTHENICALLY WEST COAST BEERS. SEE OUR ROSTER OF BEERS BELOW.

TOFINO LAGER

ABV: 5.0%
A clean, crisp traditionally brewed domestic style lager. Fermented cold and conditioned slowly, this refreshing and bright beer finds its strength in simplicity. And crushability.

SURFEZA

Subheading

ABV: 4.0%

A light and refreshing Mexican lager inspired by surfy and sun-soaked cervezas. Motueka hops for a hint of lime and citrus.

SPRUCE TREE ALE

ABV: 6.5%

Celebrating 10 years of Spruce Tree Ale
This very special seasonal release has become our most anticipated and sought-after beers. Conditioned with fresh, hand-picked Sitka Spruce tips, this beer is a springtime walk in the rainforest - in a glass.

SUMMER SEASONAL

PILSNER

ABV: 5.0%

A traditional Bohemian Pilsner brewed with European malts, ample Czech Saaz and Tettnang hops. With notes of lemon and spice, this earthy and bitter-balanced brew is our nod to the old world.

TUFF SESSION ALE

ABV: 5.0%
Our Flagship - the first beer we ever brewed. We call it a west coast pale ale but it really lives in a category all its own. Full flavoured toasty crystal malts balanced with PNW hops. Tuff City brewed.

BLONDE ALE

ABV: 5.5%
A local favourite and brewery mainstay. Authentically craft in its conception and unwavering in quality and dependability. The Blonde Ale is a highly drinkable go-to for any occasion.

ETHEREAL IPA

ABV: 6.7%
This IPA eloquently introduces its Eureka and Cashmere hops. Heavily hopped and beautifully balanced, straight from the ether.

KELP STOUT

ABV: 6.0%
Brewed with local, sustainably harvested kelp, this beer is born from the pacific coast. Strong, full bodied, showcasing deep, dark roasted malts. The salinity of the kelp provides an incredibly unique umami-like balance to the sweet, malt body - think salted dark chocolate.

COSMIC WAVE DOUBLE IPA

ABV: 9.0%
Join us on a transcendental journey free from the shackles of physical existence and beyond the known realms of consciousness. Let your mind's eye guide you to the astral planes of extrasensory non-being where we will collectively ride the cosmic waves of unity deep inside the endless barrel of the infinite void. Also, this is a strong, hoppy beer.

WONDERS OF NATURE

ABV: 5.5%
This complex, vibrant dry-hopped kettle sour employs lactobacillus to lower its PH and provide a tart, clean acidity. Expressive ale yeast layers fruity esters on a pronounced hop character. Truly a wonder of nature. 

DARK LAGER

ABV: 4.5%
Our take on a classic German Schwarzbier. Rich, roasted malt notes harmonize with the clean, crisp character of a lager.

SPACED HAZY IPA

ABV: 5.5%
Mired in a galactic-scale mystery and confounding scientific uncertainty, the exact origins of this hazy IPA are as theoretical and unknown as the universe in which we float. The nebulous yeast allows for celestial liberation of tropical flavours previously hidden in the earthbound ingredients. Unbound thiols in the experimental hop additions create an entropic expansion of flavour as endless as outer space. Plus, we spaced on brewing a hazy to date so we're making up for it with this one.

BARRELED SERIES V.1

ABV: 5.6%
BATCH NO. 001 Belgian Pale Ale

This award winning Belgian Pale Ale spent 18 months in Oak, red wine barrels and has been bottle conditioned and hand-corked/caged to enjoy now or cellar for years to come. Fermented primarily with a belgian trappist yeast and secondarily with Brettanomyces, this complex beer weaves classic brett farmhouse character with expressive, thirst quenching citrus. Its funky, fruity, peppery aroma leads into flavourful hints of sour cherry and bright lemon zest. Dry oak tannins round out a vibrant, refreshing finish. Stoked!
