As the popularity of local brews rage on, the fan base for Tin Whistle Brewing continues to grow.

Lorraine Nagy has been the owner of the Tin Whistle Brewery since 1998—she laughs at what was supposed to be a five-year plan turned to 15. But she loves it.

“I enjoy the different beers and the fun and excitement of producing new beers. It is really an exciting, creative adventure.”

Now making 10 types of beer at their brewery in Penticton, Nagy says it is full steam ahead.

“I think more and more people are discovering that fine beer is like fine wine. There are many kinds—a beer for every occasion.

“As to the growth in the industry, craft beer has been growing at a steady rate while large commercial brewery beer has stagnated over the last few years.

“People don’t tire of craft beer as there is always something new and exciting to tantalize your taste buds.”

The Tin Whistle has plans this summer to toot its own horn with a celebration for its 1,000th brew.

“We are also very excited about our new beer called Scorpion. An Imperial IPA finely balanced by our brewer.”

Tin Whistle Brewing is conveniently located off the highway in Penticton and makes the perfect addition to your summer tour.

Tin Whistle has cold beer available in-store as well as its own Black Widow Marinating Jerk Sauce made by Mr. Marks Caribbean Foods—a perfect pairing on a hot Okanagan day.
