At Dogwood Brewing, we are committed to  sustainability and supporting local business while making the best beer possible. 


Our Mission

We are dedicated to creating delicious and sustainable beer. We strive to lead the way of sustainable brewing in Vancouver.

Armed with the will and initiative to make an impact on the beer world, Claire and Brendan Wilson created Dogwood Brewing to be a sustainable and environmentally conscious brewery. Claire used her years of education and brewing experience throughout British Columbia and the UK to open Vancouver's first organic brewery: Dogwood Brewing.



Here are some of the many initiatives we have taken at Dogwood towards sustainable beer: 

  • We buy the best local ingredients from the best local Growers and producers. Gambrinus Malting in Armstrong and HooH hops in Lillooet
  • Dogwood Brewing is Certified Organic by FVOPA. This means that every ingredient in our beer is 100% certified organic.
  • The hops are certified organic and Salmon Safe hops grown by the Harvesters of Organic Hops (HOOH) in Lillooet.
  • We ensure that our beer is vegan by using only vegan fining agents (which are used to help clarify the beer) instead of finings made from animals products Which in turn means No Preservatives.
