Coming this Friday! 🥶
STAFF HIGHLIGHT! Sam has been a part of the Twin Sails family for just over a year, and more recently has taken on the roll of our Tasting Room Manager! Sam got his start in the service industry as a barback in a nightclub after a few unsuccessful office jobs, and quickly fell in love with the fast paced industry. The flexible and varied hours of the industry allowed Sam to pursue his dream of going back to school to study Gender and Sexuality in Sports. He is passionate about improving diversity and equity in sports, especially for women and the LGBTQ+ community. During the COVID shutdowns, the nightclub closed down and Sam was recommended to apply at Twin Sails Brewing by a friend and he dove right into the craft beer industry! Known as ‘The Brains of the Tasting Room’, he quickly became the star of the work Slack Channel and always has time to make jokes with fellow employee Dan. Next time you are at the brewery, say hi! Sam loves to talk about all things Harry Potter, his awesome tattoo artist, or where to get the best burger!
Hello weekend 👋🏻 Low Life : This American style lager was brewed with drinkability in mind. We kept the grain profile simple and light using only quality Pilsner Malt and flaked rice. We fermented this beer with a foraged lager strain from our friends at Bootleg Biology and allowed for an extensive lagering time. Finally, Mittelfrüh and Tettnang hops were utilized in the whirlpool to round out the delicate aroma and add a noble character.
We’ve got something fruity coming soon!

A Little Kelp From Our Friends - Seaside Botanical Wit. Working with local BC distilleries is always a good time and logically working with the best of the bunch is our goal. Our friends over at @sheringhamdistillery have been crafting small-batch spirits since 2015 on Vancouver Island. Their Seaside Gin has won numerous highly regarded awards over the years, so the focus of utilizing those nuances and placing them into a beer was really a no-brainer. Amongst a few conversations, both sides felt a wit-style beer would be the best canvas for the project and from there everything fell into place. We took some highlighted nuances from their gin recipe - juniper, citrus, coriander, cardamom, and most importantly winged kelp to really accentuate the signature Seaside Gin flavor profiles. The end result is a clean, crisp, and refreshing beer with just the right amount of gin botanicals to keep your palate happy and a slight salinity on the finish from the added to kelp to keep you coming back for more. Maybe add a shot of Seaside Gin to really kick things up to the next level. enjoy! Now available in our tasting room!
Tomorrow ☕️ Two Straws Frappé Milkshake IPA Typically with our Two Straws releases, we jam-pack them full of fruit, this time around we thought "why not mix things up a bit?!" Everybody has their favourite smooth and creamy blended coffee drink from that corporate behemoth with a mermaid as its logo - amirite! This is a tip of the hat and our take on that drink in IPA form. Along with a large amount of caramel-like Peruvian coffee beans, we blended in loads of vanilla, a couple pumps of chocolate syrup and a dollop of Sabro hops for a touch of coconut. If this beer doesn't scream dessert, we're not sure what does. Available tomorrow at our tasting room!
Salt in beer to some people may sound like a weird thing, but to us, it’s pure magic. The salinity that it brings to a beer creates a similar balance as when used in cooking, where you may not notice it if it’s not there… but once you add it, the difference is crazy! Pairing it with acidulated malt brings the PH down and creates a mouth watering sensation. It takes a NEIPA that would normally be on the sweeter side, and brings balance to it. Vapor Wave - Tart IPA with Sea Salt is now available! This IPA was brewed with acidulated malt and sea salt, the balance of the two provides a complex and refreshing flavour profile. We hit it with a heavy dry-hop addition of Citra, Motueka and Mandarina Bavaria. This is by far one of our favourites in this series because of its insanely juicy yet very refreshing profile.
