Longwood’s second location has its own tasting room & picnic patio with unique beers on tap.
The second location of the “Longwood”, the “Longwood Brewery” opened in 2012 to boost the Longwood brand’s reach across BC by introducing packaged and keg products. Featuring a line up of 6 core beers ranging from a continental Pilsner to an Imperial Stout and 4 rotating seasonal beers, there is something for everyone at the growler bar.
With a focus on being “small farm friendly”,  Longwood partners with many local farmers for a wide range of ingredients, resulting in an obsessively local product that reflects the true terroir of Vancouver Island. In fact, 75% of all the barley Longwood Brewery uses comes from central Vancouver Island and over 90% of the hops used are sourced from within B

It’s that time of year….Full Patch Pumpkin Saison is back!

This seasonal, Belgian Style Saison is not for the faint of heart. Born in a pumpkin patch and raised in the brewery, this 9% bad boy is not your grandma’s pumpkin pie. Slaughtered pumpkins and a whole lotta spice were boiled in a cauldron of barley, hops and anything else we could find lying around.

Available at select liquor stores!
