There is a new brewery starting up in Tofino, BC, aptly named Tofino Brewing Company. Coincidentally, it was started by a couple of guys who went to the same high-school as me. WGSS is obviously cranking out geniuses left, right, and center.
The brewmaster at TBC is one Dave Woodward, formerly of the Whistler Brewhouse. Whistler Brewhouse was one of my favorite apres ski places and I really enjoyed drinking Dave’s beer there, which bodes well for the quality we can expect from Tofino. If you want to learn more, Dave gave an interview regarding the fledgling TBC to CAMRA Vancouver that was published in their newsletter and is reposted on BC Beers here.
TBC gives us one more reason to visit Tofino, which is a great surf town, but also lacking in the nightlife department. I hear TBC is going to have a tasting room, maybe that could turn into a fully fledged brewpub? I’d go.
