Very few people get to study craft beer under one of the pioneers of the North American micro-brewery movement. Frank Appleton taught me what it means to make great beer, and I am truly grateful for that. Frank and I set up the brewery in Victoria’s historic Swans Hotel in 1989. When he moved on to build other breweries, I took on the role of Brewmaster and began honing my craft.

After several years of slugging it out in the brewing community working for other brewers, Matt Phillips (the patriarch of Phillips Beer) decided it was time to make beer of his own.  But while Matt’s beer was incredible, his business plan was not (at least according to the banks) and nobody would lend him the money to start the brewery.

Welcome to Sooke Oceanside Brewery!

S.O.B. is not actually a ‘local beer in Victoria, but for us, it’s close enough. Itwas born out of a desire to bring the love of craft beer to our west coast community of Sooke, B.C.

Founded in 2013, S.O.B. has been a long standing labour of love.  You may have heard of us long ago now, but it has taken a lot of recipe development, and planning to arrive at this point, and it has been time well spent!  You’re going to love our beers! The tasting room is up and running so come have a flight and say hey.
