I have alluded to this in previous posts but it seems as good a time as any to write an article regarding Lightheart Brewing joining Brewers Row.
Lightheart brewing originally joined the Independent Beer scene as a collaborative brewery at Callister Brewing in East Van.
They now make their home at Moody Ales on Brewers Row. I want to be clear this is not a contract brew situation.
Lightheart have installed their own tanks at Moody Ales, and as such have a much greater degree of autonomy over their beers. This situation is similar to the arrangement of Coalesce at Twin Sails or Temporal at Luppolo, but to my knowledge those breweries leased tank space (This information is to the best of my knowledge). This might be a first example of brewing owning tanks at another brewery since Glassbender Brewing installed a tank at Postmark brewing.
-Note: Just considered that Superflux may work under this system too, let me know if you know.
The Head brewer continues to be Nathanial Sneff. Releases so far include a West Coast Pale Ale and a West Coast IPA, look out for a Passion Fruit Sour coming soon as well.
Lightheart Expects to be on the Row for the next year or so while they build out their own space elsewhere.
Lightheart Beer is available on tap At Moody Ales, and cans should be on their way soon.
