Life is Brew-tiful in the Comox Valley
Your visit to the Comox Valley is not complete without a trip to our local craft breweries. Sample a lager, ale, stout, or a full flight to taste each brew masters best! They are all delicious and so amazingly unique, that you will be back for more! Courtenay breweries consist of the award winning Gladstone Brewing which has been a mainstay of the Valley’s craft movement since 2015 and Ace Brewing Company where you fly high with the aviation themed tap room showcasing the history of the Comox Air Force Base and local flying aces. In Comox you’ll find two of the up and comers of craft beer producers, award winning Land & Sea Brewing Company and New Tradition Brewing where brewing and distilling have been a family tradition for generations!
Gladstone Brewing Co.
Serving up quality beers since 2015, Gladstone Brewing Company has been established as a mainstay of the Comox Valley – a hub of activity, collaboration,
Ace Brewing Company Ltd.
Signature lagers to unique craft varieties by our award winning brewer in Courtenay, BC. Showcasing Canadian Air Force history.
Land & Sea Brewing Company Ltd.
Our vision for Land & Sea Brewing Co was to create a welcoming space for our community to gather, sip fresh delicious craft beer, share a tasty bite to eat and relax with friends, family and neighbours. After all, beer has been bringing people together for centuries!
Head Brewer, Tessa G, strives to produce clean, crisp and crushable session beer and has a passion for precision when brewing. Our goal is to have a rotating selection of 4-6 beers on tap at a time; ranging from easy drinking lagered ales to malt forward dark brews. The Land & Sea Brewhouse is wide open (front and centre) and a nice focal point of our space – if you’re lucky you’ll catch some of the brewing action while sipping your fresh beer.
New Tradition Brewing Company
The Savard family has been brewing and distilling for generations. Crafting liquor is a household ritual of ours and has always been in our blood.
From our great grandfather making gin in his bathtub during prohibition, to our grandfathers and fathers brewing up hundreds of batches of beer for family and friends. There’s rarely been a family household devoid of a Savard made beverage.
Our generation wants to start a New Tradition—one where all the collective efforts are above board and legal, while retaining the spirit and creativity of those previous.
Cumberland Brewing Co.
Cumberland has always been a community on the fringes, a place where independent thinkers could come for a fresh start and to build something of their own. Today it’s tree planters and oil patch workers, activists, creatives, and tireless trail builders. At the end of the day these disparate folks eat, drink and come together. Building a life with bare hands is thirsty work.
