Coastal Craft Beverages represents a portfolio of craft beverage producers on Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands. In partnership with these producers, we’ll provide you with direct access to premium quality products for your restaurant, bar and private retail store.
We work exclusively with producers that are independent, family owned businesses, focused on sustainable business practices. These producers have a story and history behind the beverages they produce, and we’d love to share their story with you.
Established in June of 2014, we manage over 2.2 million dollars in sales annually for our producers. We have grown wholesale revenue and expanded our customer base significantly by building profitable partnerships with accounts and creating and executing sales strategies that work.
We love what we do, and we love the people we work with.

‘After living on an island for 15 years, I can no longer imagine my life away from the coastal influences of the Salish Sea, it's no wonder everyone wants to call this place home. I have a real passion for working with local, BC, Craft Producers, and helping them grow their businesses. We have some of the most talented Winemakers, Distillers, Craft Brewers & Cidermakers in North America - right here! I’ve met and work with incredibly knowledgeable and passionate people in this business. I feel very lucky to do what I do, and work on the west coast.’
Coastal Craft Beverages proudly supports the British Columbia Hospitality Foundation (BCHF). A percentage of our profits are donated to the Foundation and we sponsor the annual Victoria Charity Golf Tournament every September.
The BCHF is a charity that supports workers facing financial crisis due to a health issue, and offers scholarship programs to foster the development of the hospitality workers of tomorrow.
