More beer, please

Another small-scale brewery is planned for Kelowna's downtown north end. Jackknife Brewing should be open this fall, its owners say.

Another small-scale brewery is proposed for Kelowna’s downtown north end.

The owners of Jackknife Brewing have plans to open soon at 727 Baillie Ave.

On Aug. 27, city council will consider whether to support or oppose the company’s application for a provincial liquor licence.

Planners recommend endorsement, saying the business fits in with the evolving commercial landscape in the area.

“The north end industrial area has a number of small-scale breweries and wineries,” planners write in a report to councillors.

Plans show a capacity of 70 people indoors and a 21-person patio.

“There are no residential dwellings in the immediate vicinity and the noise from the lounge and patio should not be a nuisance,” city planners say.

Other breweries and wineries in the area include Calona Wines, Sandhill, Kettle River, Vice and Virtue, and Red Bird.
