Loveshack Libations in Qualicum Beach Opens Just in Time for Valentine’s Day

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.
