About Us

We believe in all things delicious.

Île Sauvage is French for “Wild Island” and is a dual reference to the wilderness of Vancouver Island and our main focus on Belgian-style wild ales and sour beers. We will be making use of Lactobacillus, Brettanomyces, and Pediococcus fermentations, as well as secondary fermentations with fruit.

Our brewery will consist of a combination of stainless steel tanks and a huge assortment of oak-ageing vessels. At opening, we will offer a number of beers produced using sour worting methods, but over time we will be releasing long-term blended, oak-aged sour beers.

Our main goal as a brewery is to release beers that excite us and our palates; therefore, a lot of the beers will make use of fermentation-derived flavours, dry-hopping, and local fruit refermentations.
