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.

Jordan Cain, Isaiah, and Matt having a couple pints and shooting the shit in the Maple Bay farmhouse - talking hops and looking back on our journeys so far.
Amanda Swinimer, our local west coast mermaid, showing Matt and Isaiah the ropes when it comes to responsibly harvesting bull kelp for our Undersea Gose.
At the end of the day, we love what we do, and we're so grateful that you've joined us for the ride. So relax, have a beer, and pet a dog.
