We love a good story and Tin Whistle fit the bill. It is the original craft brewery of the South Okanagan Valley, and was the 12th to open in B.C. back in 1995. It’s actually named after the first locomotive train to run on the Kettle Valley Railway, which connected the regions of the Okanagan Valley like never before when it was constructed.
In 1995, Tin Whistle opened in a railway museum on Highway 97, and launched its original iconic beers Coyote, Black Widow, and Killer Bee.
We have reimagined Tin Whistle’s historic space and created a hub for locals and visitors to connect with the region, explore delicious beers, and enjoy their own everyday journey.
We give away a lot of smiles, so be ready for a big grin (just because we give a lot away doesn’t mean they’re less special when we give them to you)!
When you arrive you can expect some incredible craft beers on draft, including a rotating list of locally-inspired experimental beers. We also offer local cider, wine, non-alcoholic beers, and fruit sodas. Our onsite store provides an opportunity to take home canned beers, to fill growlers, or to pickup some Tin Whistle merchandise.
We make great beer and offer a small selection of local snacks. Want a fuller meal? Fear not. Our neighbour JJ Joy Asian Cuisine provides delicious Asian food you can takeout and eat at Tin Whistle. We love their veggie chow mein and chicken karaage. Order from your table, and then pop down the hall to pick-up and pay.
