At Riot Brewing Co. we do it our way. With each day and each beer we strive to show that anything is possible!


We are located in the seaside town of Chemainus, BC, famous for it’s murals and inexplicably badass skate park.

Stop in for a tour, a sample, a flight, or even a whole glass of beer, because the local government trusts you to handle more than a tiny sip, unlike some other cities where they don’t allow lounges. Stay for the afternoon, enjoy our gigantic patio, bring the kids, bring the dog. Spark up the fire pit for a weenie roast or destroying old photos of your ex.

Hungry? Bring a picnic or order in from many fine establishments like The Sawmill TapHouse, Pho Triple 7, or Impulse Pizza. We’ve got menus, you just need to decide what’s going to fill that hole in your soul.

Want to take some Riot beer to a party, funeral, intervention, or home to drink in the tub? You can. We fill growlers. Bring one from home or get one while you’re here. We also have 650 mL bombers and 6-packs of cans right by the door – super quick for when you’re late for work.

We’re brewing new beers all the time, so you better stop by as often as you can. Wouldn’t want to miss anything, right?
