The one constant over the last five years has been change, and we’re continuing the evolution by embracing the opportunity to make the Barrelholder membership a bit more exclusive than last year: this year there will be only 75 Barrelholder memberships available for purchase!

These supporters will be among the first to take part in the carefully curated releases that are planned for 2020: one of the major perks of a many-years-long wood program is that we don’t rush releases, and the complexity and nuance coming out of these beers attests to that meticulous shepherding of environment for the most delicious beer possible. You’ll be the envy of beer geeks near and far!

Barrelholder Perks

  • 10% off all draught and packaged beer in the taproom from Jan through Nov, 2020
  • 6 bottles from three 2020 Barrelholder releases plus priority access and a discount on more
  • Advance access to our Long Table dinner series along with other events to be announced
  • An exclusive evening reception with the opportunity to see what’s underway in the Category 12 wood cellar
  • Option to purchase Barrelholder only merch throughout 2020; including Drinktank growlers

What's a Barrelholder?

In 2015 we launched our original Barrelholder campaign as a way to involve our beer-loving community in the brewery and to help us kickstart our beer wood-ageing program. These 86 contributors enabled us to purchase our original 6 barrels (still in use today!) and the ancillary equipment we required to lovingly and carefully handle their delicious contents. Since then, we’ve continuously added to our cellar, and now have 42 barrels as well as Vancouver Island’s very first foeder, along with their delicious contents, in our possession.
