Welcome to
Our Brewery
Come on in... Let us introduce ourselves.

OUR STORY

Russell began brewing beer in 1995; forging the way for the craft movement by making small batch unpasteurized “Real Beer” with natural ingredients. We bravely challenged the giants of the beer world by making great tasting craft beer that was new and fresh and not your dad’s beer.

Today, Russell Brewing continues in its pioneering spirit; relentlessly forging a new path in the beer market. We pride ourselves on staying relevant, innovative and brave in our pursuit of creating fresh and innovative delicious craft beer. Russell Brewing, innovative, creative, unforgettable.

What’s Going On

Watch out our latest episode of “What’s Going On” for the inside-scoop around the brewery.

DAVE VAN ALLEN

Dave is the brewmaster here at Russell Brewing Co. and has been working in the brewing industry for over 7 years! You can find him at all hours of the day working closely with the brew team, creating, as he would say those, “Good Brew Vibes”. He is stoked on anything to do with barrels and never turns down an opportunity to fill one with a new and exciting beer. Look for him at almost any beer festival or stop by the brewery for a chat he’s always willing to talk for hours about anything beer related.

BRYAN MAJOR

Bryan is the head of R&D at Russell Brewery, and works with Dave the Head Brewer to create the next trendsetting pint. Nothing satisfies Bryan more than creating fun and exciting new beer recipes. Except for drinking them. His hobbies include tasting beer, shopping for brewing supplies and talking to his friends about beers. Basically, anything that is beer related, he probably loves. Although he enjoys all styles of beer, Belgium style beer will always have a special place in his heart.

If you are looking to connect with him, you will most likely find him among Russell’s beer equipment, daydreaming about their next beer release.

GRAHAM KENNY

Graham started at Russell Brewing Co. in July 2018, but has been working in the industry for over 18 years.

Although born and raised in Vancouver, Graham has lived all across western Canada in pursuit of his career. Graham’s passions include golf, snowboarding, and camping.

TAYLOR YOUNG

Taylor is our newest and youngest brewer at Russell. He started out packaging beer but quickly moved his way up into brewing. He has expressed interest in brewing beer since day one at Russell and his eagerness to learn has payed off. He loves all beers but sour beers are his favourite! His hobbies include drinking beer (obviously), snowboarding, and hitting up as many concerts as he possibly can. He has picked up the art of brewing really quickly and he can’t wait to start offering his input on our new brews. Taylor is constantly asking questions and taking every opportunity to learn this artform. When he isn’t brewing beer you can likely find him “testing” beers at local Vancouver breweries. He is a welcomed addition to the team and he has a very bright future ahead of him.
