Kerry Dyson – Head Brewer
Kerry is BREWHALL Beer Co.’s Head Brewer and lives up to his nickname, Kerebear. He is a fun-loving guy who loves all things fermentation but not as much as he loves his Boston Terrier, Astro. Believe it or not, Kerry’s secret power is that he doesn’t get hangovers, which is particularly useful in this industry. It might happen one day and that cumulative hangover could very well kill him, but until that day, he continues to use his superpower for good. This will come at less of a surprise – Kerry is known for horrible jokes and here’s proof: ‘Why don’t oysters share their pearls? Because they’re shellfish!’
Kyle Statham – Events Coordinator + Whisk(e)y Guy
Kyle takes care of all reservations and bookings at BREWHALL and is your go-to person for hosting events. A few of his favourite things are Vikings, fly fishing, and Irish breakfasts. His least favourite thing is stubbing his toe. Sources say he’s very talented at Pterodactyl screams but we have yet to hear it. In addition to being a key member of our leadership team, he has a strong passion for whisky, leading our whiskey program while following his motto that “what whiskey does not cure, there is no cure for”.
Joe Rossall – Head Chef
Joe is our Head Chef and the one that makes the magic happen in our kitchen. It’s no surprise that he is passionate about food, but he also loves beer, great white sharks, and dogs. Joe has this way of making people feel welcome and valued and shows a great deal of respect to those around him. In case you’re wondering, he has an English accent (not Irish, Scottish, New Zealand, etc.) and his pet peeve is not getting enough sleep so we don’t recommend asking him where in Australia he’s from if he looks tired. His favourite joke sounds better in person so we’ll let you ask him!
Nick Menzies – General Manager
Nick AKA, ‘Beerslingingnick’, is our General Manager and resident Casio watch gift-giver. When he’s not at BREWHALL, he’s indulging in BBQ’s and beers, playing frisbee, hanging out with his dog, or doing a combination of all three. A fun fact about Nick – he was born in Whitehorse, Yukon. Nick dislikes IT problems and has a special talent of being extremely good at throwing a wide variety of items – we’ll let him provide you with the details.
Our beerhall offers a full menu that uses fresh and local ingredients with an emphasis on made-from-scratch product. With a balance of addictive, casual comfort food and healthful, modern meals, we offer affordable food that is nutritious, wholesome and nourishing. Whether you’re sharing or indulging solo, there is something for everyone.
BREWHALL is a place to let your inner child play and explore. Choose from 22 taps of fresh beer, 8 of which are made on-site, or try the latest cocktail creations from our upstairs DRINKLAB. We also have over 50 types of whiskey including flights that are carefully curated by our resident Whisky Guy, Kyle.
Our beerhall’s main level features large, communal tables where meeting your neighbour and making new friends is strongly encouraged. It’s also where you’ll find your favourite arcade games including Big Buck Hunter, Golden Tee, pinball, and Pacman classics. Not into arcade games? No problem – we have board games and sometimes we even bust out the ping pong table! Upstairs is a different world; the setting is more intimate and features our DRINKLAB where we offer over 50 types of whisky from all over the world and a seasonal, rotating cocktail list.
We are committed to environmental stewardship and care about the impact our brewery and beerhall have on our planet. Our location was built with over 80% of reclaimed/recycled materials, we source locally where possible, eliminate single-use plastic and paper waste and use high-efficiency lighting and equipment. In addition, our on-tap beverage system significantly reduces our carbon footprint and eliminates bottles and packaging from entering our landfills.
Our passion for supporting local does not stop at food and beverages. Our beerhall features a museum-grade collection of art, highlighting Canadian artists, with a further focus on British Columbia painters, sculptors and photographers. We are proud of our growing collection, which includes works by Dina Goldstein, Carla Tak, and Yorke Graham to name a few. You’re invited to explore the space and check out the incredible work from these esteemed and emerging artists.
