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 Nelms – Sales Representative
Kyle has lots of fun spreading the good word about all the great beers we’re making at BREWHALL. When he’s not rolling around the city telling anyone who will listen about the latest release, you’re most likely to find him enjoying the Northshore mountains or a beach with his family and their teeny tiny terrier Rudy.
Kyle runs mostly on coffee and good vibes, but definitely knows his way around a smash burger.
Despite being from an island, Kyle cannot swim so if you see him near a body of water, please remind him to wear a lifejacket.
Pat Ryan – General Manager
Pat is our General Manager. When he isn’t at work, he enjoys checking out the local food and craft beer scene, riding his bike, playing golf, or doing a combination of all three.
Although Pat is a sucker for a good time, you won’t catch him dancing at work like many of his coworkers. He is not a dancer and particularly dislikes it when people try to force him to dance. Pat is not a puppet.
Pat is a big proponent of turtleneck Thursday’s at the hall and loves chatting with regulars and creating new ones. Come down and say hi! Just don’t ask him to dance.
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.
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.
