DELTA, BC – A new farm-based brewery dedicated to “crafting unfiltered and fresh-tasting beer using our own farm-grown ingredients” has opened its doors in Ladner, a small community in the city of Delta, BC.
Barnside Brewing is a joint venture between four local farming families, some having roots in the area extending back more than 100 years. Vancouver is Awesome reports that “between them [they] have more than 700 acres of organic malting barley, a five-acre hop yard producing six different varieties of hops, organic potatoes, cranberries and honey, [and are planning] to add another 10 acres of hops, as well as a malting facility.”
Open since last Friday January 17th, Barnside launched with a variety of beers available in flights, growlers, and crowlers, including Ladner Clay IPA (6% abv), Cranberry Tart Ale (4.5% abv), SMASH Pale Ale (4.1% abv), Hop Yard Sour (4.1% abv), Farmer’s Tap Lager (4.7% abv), Crescent Island Brown Ale (5% abv), Imperial Oatmeal Stout (7.5% abv), Burns Bog Peaty Brown (6% abv), Altbier (5% abv), and Honeycomb Pale Ale (5.2% abv).
