Callister Brewing Co: Co-Working Brewery

Diana Chan May 20, 2017 Brewery, Commercial Drive / Grandview

Callister Brewing Co has a unique concept and they operate as a co-working brewer. They support independent, talented brewers to grow their business by creating accessibility to equipment and commercial facilities. They currently have Boombox Brewing, Real Cask, and Lightheart Brewing in this co-working brewery.

Tasting Room

The tasting room was busy around dinner time as there was a huge group here. It seems like craft breweries are popular for bachelors and bachelorette parties. There are a few long tables and some smaller tables in the form of barrels.

Flights of Beer

As usual, I asked them for their less hoppy beers on the menu. I got the Lightheart Brewing ‘Brain Candy’ Pale Ale, Real Cask Brewing Black Burn Bitter, Callister Brewing ‘Das Alt’ German Alt Bier, and Boombox Brewing Mystify Barrel Sour.

Of the bunch, all of them were meh, but I did enjoy the Boombox Brewing Mystify Barrel Sour. My friend didn’t like any of the beers in her flight.


They have sine awesome snacks created by East Side Beer Food. There’s stuff like pretzels, pepperoni sticks, samosas, and twisty cheesy bread. All so good and indulgent. I got the spicy pepperoni stick and it had a nice kick to it. Best brewery snacks.

Final Thoughts

Overall, they have a lot of different beers, but a lot of them were mediocre.
