At Big Surf Beer, we are all about good beer and good times. Living the dream!

We believe in enjoying life to its fullest, and getting out there and pushing your limits. While we love surfing, we named our beer Big Surf after all… we are really into people enjoying whatever it is that they love.

People ask us why we called it Big Surf Beer when we are located in Kelowna. Well, we do have big waves on the Okanagan Lake that people enjoy:

  • wake boarding, 
  • kite surfing, 
  • wind surfing, 
  • surfing, 
  •  jet skiing  

So get out your long boards, your wake boards, your surf boards or strap on your skis or your snowboard. Get out there and follow your passion. All we ask is that when you come in at the end of the day and you’re sitting around with your friends talking about that huge wave, massive jump, or the one that got away, that you do it with some Big Surf Beer.

We are so passionate about our small batch, craft brewed lager. While we don’t have a huge operation like a lot of the big players in the beer industry, we care just as much, if not more. While the label says big, we’re talking about the amount of care and attention that goes into every one of our batches of beer. Isn’t that what counts?

Crisp, clean, and refreshing, Laid Back Lager and Honey Brown Lager by Big Surf Beer are the right choice for the cooler when you are:

  • playing ball with the team,
  • grilling in the backyard with friends and family, 
  • sitting on the patio after a day on the water. 

We’ve got the looks, the flavour, and obviously we have the personality.

So stop picking the same old beer… catch the wave with Big Surf.
