Well, it’s taken a while, but Vancouver Island’s newest craft brewery, Riot Brewing, will be opening it’s door at 2 p.m. today (November 10).
Located in Chemanius, BC. Riot was co-founded by Aly Tomlin, Ralf Rosenke, and Morgan Moreira, who have recruited ex-Central City brewer Fabian Specht as head brewer. The brewery was originally scheduled to open in the spring, but has faced a number of delays. However, it looks like it is finally happening!
I believe that on opening they will have three beers on tap: Lip Slide Lager, Life Partners Pale Ale, and Junk Punch IPA.
If you are in the area, be sure to head by and check them out. Sadly I don’t want to risk going over the Malahat on my bike until spring so won’t be able to visit for a while.
