Phillips Makes Vancouver Inroads

leave a comment »

Victoria’s Phillips Brewing has been expanding thanks to its aggressive ambition to release a seasonal beer every month. That goal had been momentarily set back in May as they moved from Esquimalt into a new brewery in Victoria. Now getting settled in, we should see Phillips get back on track with this week’s release of their new WheatKing Hefeweizen.

Phillips has been steadily making inroads into the Vancouver market. Eight of their products have BCLDB listings, which means they are available throughout the province. (Given the LDB’s logistics, I recommend you check the freshness date before purchasing if buying from a government liquor store as they do not refrigerate.) In Vancouver, the fullest range is available (and refrigerated) at:

Brewery Creek Cold Beer & Wine
3045 Main Street, Vancouver
Tel: (604) 872-3373
Hours: 11:00am – 11:00pm daily

Firefly Fine Wine and Ales
2857 Cambie Street, Vancouver
Tel: (604) 875-3325
Hours: 10:00am – 11:00pm daily

Draft taps have also been popping up in more locations. Here’s the current disposition:
