Who Are We?

Opening in July 2015, Callister Brewing has established firm roots in the ever-expanding brewing neighbourhood of Yeast Van. Chris and Diana are the primary owners, brewers, and operators, running the smallest brewery in Vancouver. You can often find them brewing, serving customers, or even enjoying a beer. Stop by and say hi!

Most of our beer is sold on the 12 constantly rotating taps (including 3 cask engines) in the tasting room. And since we’re so small, you’ll always get the freshest beer possible.

You can also find Twin Island Cider on tap, along with spirits from Sons of Vancouver and Woods Spirits, available to mix with our craft sodas.

  • Callister Brewing Co.: a mix of European styles, IPAs, and solid traditional beers
  • Callister Sodas: fresh ingredients and unique flavours
  • Altitude: IPAs and a mix of other experimental styles
Callister Park was at the heart of the East Vancouver community and local sporting events. The sports stadium, established in 1921 (originally as Con Jones Park) on Renfrew St. at Oxford (across from the PNE), was home to the Pacific Coast Soccer League, baseball, lacrosse, rodeos, and demolition derby. Chris’ grandfather, Ed Lay, was its caretaker from 1949 to 1970 and lived in a suite beneath the stands with his son (Chris’ father) and wife. Callister Park still exists today as a green space.
