Factory Brewing Brings Contract Brewing to Vancouver

It looks like Vancouver is about to get its first contract brewery when Factory Brewing opens later this spring.

Factory’s purpose-built, collaborative contract brewery has been designed to help the craft community expand its business operations.

The facility will be the first of its kind on the West Coast and will host a 50-hl Newlands Systems Inc. (NSI) brewhouse, over 60,000hl capacity, a full packaging line, and a quality control lab.

They will be opening with 11 brewery partners, including Doan’s. I’m hoping Superflux is one of those partners, so we can get a more regular supply of Colour & Shape!

Vancouver, BC – Vancouver’s first contract brewery, Factory Brewing, will open its doors later this spring.

“Unlike other contract breweries, Factory is completely collaborative,” says co-founder and CEO Andrew Harris. “Our brewers work with our partner breweries every step of the way. We’re like their assistant brewers.”

Heading up Factory’s brewing operations will be Brewmaster Andres Palma, former Director of Brewing at Vancouver’s Molson brewery, and Head of Operations Rick Dellow, founder of R&B Brewing and former NSI project brewer.

Factory will launch with 11 brewery partners, including Doan Brewing, based in East Vancouver.
