Welcome to brewing at the Noble Pig! Our onsite brewing facility offers not only unique beers but our brewing space itself is specially designed to accommodate our limited space.
In our upstairs production space, viewed through the glass windows in the pub, we have two specially designed brewing tanks, called a Mash Tun and a Lauter Tun, to maximize the space that we have available. Part of the unique design lies with the Mash Tun also acting as a Kettle and Whirlpool – something exceptionally rare among breweries. In this room the malted barley is ground and added to high quality Kamloops water. Later hops and other specialty ingredients, such as fruit and spices, are added and finally the spent grain is separated from the mixture and donated to local farmers.
The final two steps in the brewing process – fermentation and conditioning – occur in the downstairs brewing area. Here we have approximately 1500 ft2 of conditioning tank space – a beer lover’s dream! – where beer will rest and condition for anywhere from two weeks to almost six months for some of our specialty brews before being served upstairs at our taps.
Our busy brewing schedule at The Noble Pig is managed by our Head Brewer Trevor Zechel who joined our team in 2016. Previously a paramedic of 22 years with BC Ambulance Trevor switched career paths and graduated from the inaugural Brewing and Brewery Operations class of Kwantlen Polytechnic University. Our range of beers styles rotating throughout the seasons is designed by Trevor where as a brewer he is able to marry his technical and scientific side with the creative expression that modern craft beer drinkers enjoy. Rotating taps are a limited release styles and there can be as little one thousand liters of a brew released. For our upcoming rotating taps you can check our Facebook or Instagram pages.
We have produced over 100 different styles of beers since opening and consistently feature four Noble Brews year round and we always have a series of exciting rotating beers on tap.
If you are looking to try something that is even more one-of-a-kind we also hold Cask Nights where we feature a forty liter cask containing unique and inspired ingredients to complement a style of beer. These casks are typically high demand and sell out in a matter of hours – details of what night and time the cask will be released are shared on our social media pages.
Please feel free to ask your server if tours are available when you dine with us. If we are not actively brewing that day we love to show guests our brewery space. In the event that we are brewing and not able to take guests through on a full tour we have an abbreviated brew tour mural painted on our back wall which is a perfect photo opportunity to keep a memento from your experience at The Noble Pig Brewhouse!
Cheers to beers at the Noble Pig Brewhouse.
