Seed to Glass - A Short Film

A short film brought to you

by Whistle Buoy Brewing and friends

Environmental stewardship, quality manufacturing, and commitment to low impact business have been core values at Whistle Buoy since the start.
Luckily, living in the productive growing region of Vancouver Island means we don’t have to choose between high quality or local ingredients, we get both! The raw ingredients we use in our beer is the single most important factor for the quality of the end product. This is the story of some of our beautiful ingredients from the seed to your glass, and the unsung heroes who work tirelessly to produce them. 
Featured  in this film include Kyle Michell from Field 5 Farms, Pamela Fox from Silver Rill Berry Farm, Jordan Cain from Maple Bay Hop Farm, and Amanda Swinimer from Dakini Tidal Wilds. The film was produced on W̱SÁNEĆ, Songhees, Quw'utsun, and T'Sou-ke territories.
