Located across the street from Maffeo Sutton Park in the heart of Downtown Nanaimo, White Sails Brewing is a community gathering place and local craft beer hub. With a large 100 seat West-Coast inspired Taproom, White Sails is all about bringing the community together through craft and passion. From locally-inspired brews to rotating local artwork, White Sails is dedicated to celebrating Nanaimo and providing a window into life in the Hub City.

The vision was to create a gathering space where people can relax, meet with friends, celebrate an event or milestone and enjoy fresh craft beers while connecting with the community around them. With local artwork, live music, and community events, there’s always something brewing at White Sails.

White Sails was inspired by the large white masts that anchor our community from the North and South and is also a tribute to Nanaimo’s heritage, environment and community. It reflects the City flag, which includes a ship with billowing white sails that commemorate the settlers of Nanaimo that sailed from England.
