West Coast Brew Shop will guide you through the entire process, from choosing the type of beer that you require to the correct packaging for you.

Our Beer Process

4 Steps to enjoying your own great beers

  1. Choose a recipe or a style of beer, choose from;
    • straw,
    • amber,
    • golden,
    • brown or
    • black.
  2. Choose from “malt-extract syrup brews” or traditional “all-grain” brews. (See Below)
  3. Choose your packaging: Glass bottles, plastic bottles, or aluminum cans. (See Here >>)
  4. Read the Before You Order page

then call us at (250) 384-8484, or stop by in person to make an appointment.

“All-Grain” means your beer is brewed from scratch by our Brewmaster, using classic and modern brewing techniques. “Extract” means your beer is made from a pre-produced syrup. Both produce great-tasting beer.

Which is the right choice for you?

Consider an “All-Grain” beer if you:

Are a beer enthusiast. All-Grain brews cost more, but they are hand-crafted from our own recipes, carefully balancing flavour, aroma, colour and body. It’s the best choice for the Amber, Brown or Black Ales on our Menu below, since these brews have a depth and complexity that comes from the careful blending of different types of malt.

Consider an “Extract” beer if you:

Like its taste. Our malt extract syrup is delicious and of very high-quality and some people prefer it to All-Grain brews. It is particularly well-suited to the “Straw-coloured” brews on our Menu, like Pilsner and Light Beer, as it produces a very clean and consistent flavour. Why not try both, and decide for yourself?
