Founded mid-cast and hip-deep in a mountain stream, Slackwater stands for the moments between life’s ebbs and flows—especially those enjoyed with friends, family, and beers in hand.
In 2013 after starting the Whistler Village Beer Festival, Liam Peyton imagined opening a brewery, but not necessarily one in Penticton. It truly took a village, and perhaps more importantly, a determined woman—Liam’s now wife Kelsey, to make all of the pieces come together. Their shared love for beer was matched only by a passion for the outdoors, two things the couple decided would never be mutually exclusive in their life.
So was born Slackwater Brewing in 2019 between two waters in Penticton.
Slackwater Brewing Taproom
This building was once the site of a local institution known for enjoying many libations in the spirit of companionship. Some things never change. The newly renovated space features two floors, two bars, and two patios worth of whistle-wetting all built around an open-faced brewery. Twelve draught taps and locally inspired pub fare are done counter service in this beerhall-like taproom.
Occasionally we have live music, play games, put on sports, and take group or corporate reservations. We are family-friendly during kitchen hours, which are most up-to-date on our Google. profile.
Happy Hour is between 3 pm & 5 pm daily, Trivia every Tuesday at 7 pm, and live music on Saturdays from 8 pm.
