Our Story

Strathcona Beer Company is driven to provide a premium, fresh and quality product. We were founded by an impassioned group of friends with deep rooted connections to our neighbourhood and an appreciation for local and international beer. We are proudly located in the heart of Strathcona, Vancouver’s oldest and most diverse commercial and residential neighbourhood. Our world class brewing facility produces a modern style of traditional beer coupled with unique offerings to tempt the palette of the most discerning beer drinkers. We value social development, individual creativity and encourage positive and meaningful contributions to our community. Our collective interests in art, music, skateboarding and design have influenced all aspects of the brand as we strive to push the boundaries of the craft beer industry in order to offer our customers a collaborative community space where great beer, fresh locally sourced food and good friends come together.

“We chose Strathcona for its strong community feel, character, vibrancy and are dedicated to contributing to the neighbourhood in a positive way.“ says Strathcona Beer Company President, Tim Knight. ”We know that the brewery and tasting room will become a gathering place for local residents and fill a void for what has been missing in the area.”
