Wildeye Brewery

We’ve been wanting to check out Wildeye Brewery since we first spotted their logo during their construction days. It’s always busy whenever we drive by (especially it seems with the cyclists). They’re next door to Cove Bike Shop.

We dropped in on a Friday (around 4:00pm) and it was surprisingly busy. It’s spacious with plenty of seating inside along with several outdoor picnic tables (heat lamps included). Fun that there’s a shuffle board tucked away in one corner. Service was friendly (our waitress was Aussie) and efficient.

14 beers to choose from; four wild icon and 10 wild idea flavours. Several collaborations with local breweries, which is great to see. Happy hour is 2:00pm to 5:00pm and 9:00pm to 10:00pm (Monday to Thursday).

Their food menu is small but consists of shareable & handhelds, pizza and tacos. A Tacofino food truck is also parked three times a week (Monday, Thursday and Sunday).

Beer cans ranged from $12.00 to $16.00 (for 4 packs).

Flight ($10.00 for 4)
DSC03374We went with the blackberry winter sour, spiced plum sour (collab with North Point) Shirley temple sour (collab with Field House) and Belgian blond rose.

DSC03376

Our favourite was the spiced plum sour; hints of cinnamon and orange peel. Really quite different and unique.

DSC03378

Belgian blond rose (aged on pinot noir skins from The Hatch Winery) was light but the wine notes came through.

The Shirley temple sour had a good creamy, mouth feel and tasted tangerine-like.

DSC03375

The blackberry winter sour didn’t particularly leave much of an impression on us.

Truffle popcorn ($5.00)
DSC03389A very generous portion and loved that they give you a side of Parmesan cheese.

The cheese wasn’t too strong but added a nice savoury element.

Tacos ($10.00 for 3)
DSC03381We tried the kimchi pulled pork, fungi (grilled mushrooms, garlic, cashew cream, truffle oil) and Tiki pulled pork (pineapple chimichurri, cabbage slaw and pickled onion). Better than expected! These aren’t authentic but the portions were generous and fairly tasty. Our favourite was the fungi; garlicky, tender and creamy. The Tiki pulled pork edged the kimchi taco as the meat was a touch juicier and tastier.

Feel it in my plums ($15.00)
DSC03399We bought a four pack for home.
