Revelstoke's Mt. Begbie Brewing Company (especially the Tall Timber Ale, Nasty Habit IPA, and Knocker Bock (if you can find it on tap).

Penticton's Cannery Brewing (especially the Naramata Nut Brown Ale).

Nelson Brewing Company (especially Nelson After Dark).

Vancouver's Granville Island Brewing

Victoria's Phillips Brewing Company (especially the Hoperation Triple Cross, Longboat Chocolate Porter, and Hop Goblin IPA).
