In December 2016 A Frame Brewing in Squamish finally opened their doors after many many months of construction.
The brewery is currently not open Mondays and Tuesdays so it has taken me a little while to get in and check out the brewery while open. The lounge has a great West Coast feel with lots of wood finishings. It is a nice touch to have the copper behind the bar. The chairs in the brewery are all short cuts of logs and make for a neat BC look. They launched with 4 core beers including the Okanagan Lake Cream Ale, Elfin Lakes Belgian Ale, Sproat Lake Dry Hopped Pale Ale and the Magic Lake Porter. They also have seasonal beers that they will be releasing. Right now their seasonal is Laslui Lake Black IPA and it is really tasty.
Behind a chain you will see the brewery itself. It is staff only unless you are given a tour but you can see much of it. I didn’t go behind the line on this visit so I did not get a new photo of the brew house but I have attached one of the older shots of it. The brewhouse is a 15 Hectoliter system. The brewery is small with 4-30 Hectoliter fermentors stuffed into a the space as can be seen in the second and third photo.
If you find yourself in Squamish or are heading through to Whistler makes sure to stop in. You will not regret the decision!
