About Slackwater Brewing

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.
