The Townsite Story

FROM SMALL IDEAS COME GREAT THINGS

Townsite Brewing was hatched in the winter of 2010 when Steve Brooks, Karen Skadsheim and Michelle Zutz began discussing putting a craft brewery in a building that Steve owns. They were looking for someone to partner with to head up the brewing and operations. At the same time Cedric Dauchot and Chloe Smith were in Saskatoon shopping around their business plan to open a brewpub without much luck. The two business plans were merged, a sixth partner- Ulrich Herl, was added and Townsite Brewing opened in spring 2012. In 2021 Townsite purchased Raincoast Kombucha. A local company started by Christina Maitland and Matt Klassen in 2013. It was a natural fit for Townsite, and we are proud to carry the legacy of these delicious brews forward.

Today, Townsite is a family of people on a mission to authentically augment the quality of this incredible community on the shores of the Salish Sea on the territory of the Tla’amin people.

An Artisinal Approach

Townsite is also the only brewery in BC that is designated as an Economusée. This program aims to promote and conserve the heritage of traditional skills by showcasing artisans at work as they produce authentic, handcrafted products and contribute innovative ideas to their trade.
