Vancouver Island’s newest craft brewery LoveShack Libations opened its doors this weekend, aptly just in time for Valentine’s Day!
Situated in Qualicum Beach, LoveShack is a nano brewery founded by Dave Paul and has an interesting back story:
When we first moved to the Island eleven yrs. ago, we lived in a tent for 6 weeks while I built a twelve by sixteen shack. We called it The Love Shack and lived in it for three and a half years while I built our house. I’ve brewed countless batches of beer in the Shack and all are brewed with love. Now I need to share that love with the world.
They opened with an impressive five beers on tap:
- DPA dark IPA
- Precious Porter
- Craft Cream Ale
- Killer Kolsh
- RPA rye pale ale
(See the full details below)
As of present, the tasting room will be open on Wednesdays from 17:00-21:00 and Saturdays from 12:00–16:00.
Hopefully I’ll be able to make it up this summer to try their beers.
