Forbidden Brewing Planning to Open in BC’s Comox Valley


COURTENAY, BCThe Comox Valley Echo reports that a new brewery has applied for permission to open in The Westerly Hotel in Courtenay, BC.

According to the article, Forbidden Brewing is planned to consist of a nano-brewery and tasting lounge with capacity for 30 people, and would “complement the Flying Canoe,” a pub and liquor store already in business at the hotel.

This is the second brewery proposal to be reviewed recently by Courtenay city council, following an application last month from Gladstone Brewing. The decision on that earlier application was delayed due to issues with Gladstone’s intention to have food trucks provide food to patrons, and it’s unknown if or when a revised proposal will be brought forward.
