Where we started

Wolf Brewing Company, started out back in the year 2000 as Nanaimo's first craft brewing company, Fat Cat Brewery. As many hands changed, and Fat Cat was sold to new ownership, a rebrand to Wolf Brewing Company commenced and since then has undergone a series of updates, additions, and new brews that have become the steeple of Wolf's image.

Since the latest change in ownership, Wolf has stepped up to include a brand new lounge, updated amenities, local food truck events, and a fresh lineup of beers that see new inclusions with every season.

Meet Kev Ward. 

Kev got his start in Liverpool, running and renovating restaurants and pubs, while brewing all over the English landscape.

Kev has always had an interest in brewing, starting with brewing wine and beer in his hometown with his mother. 

Ater travelling the world, he began his tenure building up tired pubs while working for free with any brewer that would teach him. Kev learned the tools of the trade, and was able to use his service industry resourcefulness, and combine it with his brewing knowledge, move to Canada, and create a lineup of beers when he finally came to Wolf that carry English tradition with a West Coast twist.
