Two Five Oh Common
ABV: 5.4% | IBU: 39.3
This is one of our favourite beer styles at KBC. California Commons are technically lagers but they are fermented at higher temperatures and this gives them more fruity and complex flavours. Our version is a strikingly orange-coloured with a clean and crisp smoothness which makes it suitable for lager and ale fans alike!
ABV: 5.0% | IBU: 15.3
Willie’s Wheat is our take on a classic hefeweizen, a traditional German style of unfiltered wheat beer. We love how fresh and light this beer is, whilst having a complex flavour profile with notes of banana and clove. The haze that you will see in your glass is actually small amounts of suspended yeast which give this beer its distinctive flavour.
ABV: 4.2% | IBU: 25.1
This beer is named in honour of the big friendly biker dude, Pete, who also happens to be one of our owners. He used the full weight of his stake in our company for this Oatmeal Stout. This is a well-rounded oatmeal stout that is as smooth it gets. It hits all the notes that you would expect: caramel, chocolate and coffee. Try it in house on nitro for the ultimate smooth pint!
Hazy Pale Ale
ABV: 4.6% | IBU: 30.1
This beer was introduced as a successor to the very first beer we brewed here at KBC. Our Community NEIPA was a 7% ABV beast full of bold hop flavour. For the Hazy Pale Ale, we wanted the same big hit of juicy hops at a more sustainable strength and this has become our flagship beer for hop lovers! We went heavy on the Citra with this one to create an aromatic and flavourful pale ale. A perfect crushable beer all year round!
Old Man Kölsch
ABV: 4.6% | IBU: 21.6
At KBC, we pride ourselves on our inclusivity and being welcoming to everybody that steps through our doors. We wanted our beer range to reflect this fact and the Old Man Kolsch is our beer for those who don’t want the latest craziest flavours and combinations of ingredients. The kind of people that just want to sit and enjoy a nice beer. This is a no nonsense, accessible, easy-drinking beer that strikes an even balance between maltiness and hoppiness. Crisp, clean and refreshing.
Very English Porter
ABV: 4.8% | IBU: 26.9
Our very English brewer, Josh, was biting at the bit to create a traditional English style Porter so we let him loose and this is what he came up with. The grain bill is the key to this one so we started with a combination of 2-row barley, crystal and chocolate malts and balanced this off with some classic English hops.
What resulted is a rich and refreshing combination of coffee and chocolate notes with a dry finish.
ABV: 7.2% | IBU: 32.9
The winter season is upon us and that means it’s time for a strong, rich beer to keep everyone warm! We love our darker beers at Kelowna Brewing Company so for this recipe we started with a combination of roasted malts to give flavour and complexity. We topped all this off with a good helping of molasses in the boil. The resulting beer has a big hit of maltiness, with a nice balanced sweetness and distinctive notes of treacle and toffee.
ABV: 5.2% | IBU: 12.1
The Okanagan valley is world famous for its fruit production and we couldn’t miss the opportunity to fuse fruit with one of our beers. The cherry sour was the result of a few experiments over the summer with different fruits, and was an incredibly popular offering in our taproom.
This is a light, fruity, refreshing sour that will take you back to those summer days on the lake or the patio.
Honey Pepper Ale
ABV: 5.2% | IBU: 25.9
The Honey Pepper Ale was the result of a collaboration between Kelowna Brewing Company and Freddy’s Brewpub. We put our heads together and wanted to come up with something unique and different. Szechuan pepper is an ingredient that is commonly used in Chinese cooking and it has a very distinctive flavour that comes alongside a slight numbing, tingling sensation which we thought would be interesting to play with. So we took this, added some local honey to balance things out, and the honey pepper was born! The pepper gives the beer a fantastic aroma and the honey gives a nice richness. You can find this brew at both of our establishments and it’s well worth seeking out if you feel like trying something a bit different!
