our beer ain't green, but our couch is. support your local breweries this st. patrick's day (and always). @viceandvirtuebeer has a dry irish stout on nitro, @kettleriverbrew has a st. paddy's themed trivia tonight, and we've got check your head on tap and tennessee in bottles.
we brew the beer, these guys make it look good. we're so proud to have @benarcega's art on the doors to our brewery, and @notsosimpleton's, well, everywhere. the van, our growlers, cans, logos - he even made us our own "BNA bowl" typeface!
"76 wolverine road was the party house. the place where you met your friends and made new ones. where everyone became a local. this beer brings the spirit of the legendary house party wherever you take it. so cheers to the late nights and early mornings. to powder days and the après. to warm sun and cool waters. to you. to kelowna."
working on the next installment of "within city limits." did you catch the first edition on @kelownanow? we talked (a lot) about two of the flagship items on our menu and how they came to be (link in bio), but going forward we want to showcase some other movers and shakers doing things that inspire us in the city we hold so dearly.
first up, our neighbours at @sproutbreadshop.
torino pizza - spicy capicola, olives, artichoke, pepperoncini, gorgonzola mascarpone, mozzarella. pizza and beer is a timeless pairing for a reason, and proper pale ale is the perfect companion for this 'za. malty enough to mellow the spice, with a mild hop presence that doesn't overpower the pleasant salt of the olives and artichoke. dinner plans?

a seasonal favourite - the chop chop. roasted brussel sprouts, broccoli, cauliflower, dried montmorency cherries, cabbage, fried wonton, red kale, smoked almonds, grana padano, red onion, ginger & chili dressing.
