Rusted Rake Brewing Nanoose Bay BC Beer

 Where the Barley Grows, the Goodness Flows

Full-flavoured & highly drinkable beer, made from barley grown right here on our little farm by the sea.

Major Bells Pale Ale

Major Bell’s

Pale Ale — ABV:5.2% IBU: 30

With a base of pale malt, this popular copper ale has a custom blend of specialty malts to thank for its delicious toasty depth. Layered with tropical fruit, berries, apple, pear and citrus, this brew is a west coast speciality, favoured by dignified souls like the Major himself.

Rusted Rake Cheese Character

The Rusty Angler

IPA — ABV: 6.8% IBU: 70

A perfectly balanced blend of specialty malts and generous hops ensure this IPA is packed with flavour. With notes of resiny pine, stone and tropical fruit, the Rusty Angler is the strong silent type, who, like a well-aged cheese, packs a punch.

Rosa the Rebel

Rosa the rebel

mexican lager — ABV: 4.5% IBU: 15

Light, dry and made for easy drinking, Rosa the Rebel is the perfect beer on a hot summer day. Lightly kilned pilsner, corn and rice form the base of this Mexican style lager, with hops bringing the spice and fruity goodness. Best enjoyed icy cold, after a dip in the sea in your bloomers.

The Two Louies

The Two Louies

coffee sTOUT — ABV: 4.2% IBU: 15

Dark, luscious and deliciously complex, The Two Louies is everything a Stout should be. Aged with hand selected, locally-roasted French Press coffee, this full-bodied beer is a Rake favourite. Zut Alors! Très bon!

Ziggy Digs It

Hazy Pale Ale — ABV: 5% IBU: 15

Malted wheat and our very own Rake-harvested oats bring a protein rich haze to this HPA. Beautifully cloudy and silky smooth, kettle hops and dry hopping deliver a juicy punch to the palate. Can you dig it?


Willem Wets His Whistle

Belgian Witbier — ABV: 5% IBU: 10

Belgian yeast gives this Witbier subtle notes of spice and fruit, while bittersweet orange peel and coriander offer a zesty hit. A top secret spice blend provides an air of mystery to this lip-smackingly crisp beer, just the way Willem likes it.

Rosa the Rebel

The Wandering Scotsman’s

Spruce Tip IPA — ABV: 6.2% IBU: 10

Locally sourced, handpicked spruce tips are the secret to this effervescent Brut IPA. Dry-hopped Columbus and Simco combine to create earthy notes of pine, resin, spice and fruit. Like a crisp morning wander with a kilted Scotsman through an evergreen forest, but with beer. Slainte!
