Longwood Brewery
The Longwood Brewery is located at 2046 Boxwood Rd in Nanaimo, BC on Vancouver Island. They brew beer year round with Longwooda staple of regularly produced brews and also a selection of “seasonal” brews. They offer a proper pint, can, a bomber, or a growler at the brewery as well as tasting and tours. They also sell their brews at their Longwood Brew Pub also located in Nanaimo. We’ve been there a few times and the food and experience have always been good.

Longwood Island Time Lager
The Longwood “Island Time” Lager is a Pilsner with 5% alcohol. It is unique in the fact that all ingredients used to make this craft beer are sourced locally within 20 kilometres of the brewery. It is a clean crisp beer, but for our tastes is too much like a domestic lager that you get almost anywhere. We would give this one a pass if offered again.


We, Jeff & Tara Ciecko of CK Golf write two blogs, one is our 19th Hole Blog where we share personal experiences and the other an Industry Blog where we comment on general business and internet marketing best practices, sales strategies and give golf industry related opinions. We have owned CK Golf  for 9 years and provide marketing, social media and business services to the golf and other industries. Our 19th Hole Blog is about the places we visit and the things we do. When we say that we like or dislike something or have a good or bad experience this is our opinion and the truth as we see it, not something we have been paid for. If you have any questions or comments feel free to contact us anytime.
