We Live Great Beer
In a world filled with mass-produced stuff, being connected to what you consume is what drives us in the pursuit of innovation and quality.

We work to be leaders in the trade by continually raising the bar.
We stay innovative by offering seasonal flavours and variations alongside our outstanding definitive core selection. And, as the craft-brewing industry grows, so do we! We’re motivated to do more and learn from others; we never rest—unless it’s to share a pint or two with our friends and crew.
Driftwood started out with the simple desire:
To create something authentic and now we get to make a living from it! The Driftwood family shares a genuine desire to brew good beer and work is never a dull process—especially with all the lively characters we have around our shop.
Kevin and Jason get the keys to the site of our original brewery location, Unit 102-450 Hillside Avenue.
Gary delivers our first kegs to The Beagle Pub in Cook Street, the first establishment to serve our beer on tap.
Demand for Driftwood grows on the mainland—enough so that Ian, our sales staff in Vancouver, gets full-time employment.
Big renos are afoot as the brewery doubles in size, expanding our operations into an adjoining space (Unit 101) on Hillside Ave.
We begin independent delivery and warehouse operations in Richmond, adding more Driftwood team members to drive our (small) fleet of new delivery vehicles.
The remainder of the space at 450 Hillside Ave is commissioned into a new 60hl brewhouse, with a state-of-the-art bottling line!
As production expands, so do we! We move our packaging team to a warehouse on Viewfield Rd, where we install a state-of-the-art canning line.
We take possession of the other half of the warehouse on Viewfield Rd and begin the lengthy process of moving the brewery to Esquimalt.
The brewhouse, tanks, kegger, and everything else has been moved and brewing begins on Viewfield Rd.
Driftwood Bar + Patio opens its doors! After nearly a year of operating our store out of a temporary retail space, we get to finally enjoy a pint with our local customers at the brewery!
We never compromise the beer.
We take pride in crafting something special. Our beer is made by real people with high standards. You want the best, and we want to make it for you.See our list of currently
