It’s time for another Tap Take Over. This time it’s 3 breweries from one roof, that being the Callister Brewing roof.

January 31st, 2019 Taps at 6:30pm


Brewers sign on for a one-year period to join Callister Brewing and brew their own beers. Callister Brewing provides operating and retail space to new, local brewers to produce, package, and sell beer to the public in a low-risk environment while providing the foundation of an existing support and peer-learning network. Chris Lay and Dianna Mckenzie (Callister Founders) are going to be at the TTO.


Tim started brewing as a kid, helping his dad at the home brew store in Ontario. Over the years he moved to The Yukon and finally to Vancouver where he found a home in the vibrant home brewing community. Tim moved around from several craft breweries until launching his own brand at Callister. The focus of Good Buddy is to make wacky and drinkable beers, but most importantly to hang out with your good buddies and have good times.


The Sundown team started home brewing around 2012 as a hobby and way to spend less money on beer (oh, the irony). Over time their modest hobby has morphed into a truly passionate obsession for creating unique and exceptional beers. Bringing different areas of expertise from the tech industry Kevin, Ben, and Charles thrive on every aspect of the beer making process from brewing to imbibing.
