Okanagan Pale Ale ~ 35.5cl Can
First brewed in 1989, this beer is British Columbia’s original, favorite and best selling Pale Ale, from one of the earlier of Canada’s craft breweries.
Inspired by beer lovers, Okanagan use the best ingredients, longer brew times and exacting care during each step of the process.

Clear copper coloured, it is fruity on the palate and hearty in hops with a nice, round finish – smooth with a touch of bitterness.
About the Brand
One of the early microbreweries in British Columbia, Okanagan Spring was opened in 1985 by German immigrants Jakob Tobler and Buko Von Krosigk – inspired by the natural surroundings — and a total lack of good, local beer.
Okanagan Spring, based in Vernon, has dominated the regional microbrewery scene since the mid-90’s. The product line was originally oriented toward lagers, but the company soon found out that there was a much more enthusiastic market for ‘craft’ beer.
The brewers have 100+ years combined experience, and are stringent about ingredients. Only the best will do: premium two-row Canadian barley, quality hops, their own signature yeast strain and 100% pure Okanagan spring water.
In 1996, the company was purchased by Sleeman.
