TIME Winery is a full-fledged winery located in Downtown Penticton surrounded by the vineyards of the Okanagan Valley.
TIME is the vision of maverick winemaker Harry McWatters who after decades of successful winemaking ventures has created a home for TIME Wines in a historic and stunningly revitalized space that once housed Penticton's movie theatre. We hope you will join us here at TIME Winery and Kitchen as we open our doors to the residents and visitors of Penticton.
Faculty Brewing Co. is the brainchild of husband-and-wife team Mauricio, the head brewer, and Alicia, the architect behind the brewery's design. Seeing a need to make craft beer more accessible to the masses, they found their perfect location in the former space of bicycle shop Pedal Bike Depot and began to make their idea a reality.
The Faculty name was born out of Mauricio's experience as a professor, the wish to educate and empower people with craft beer knowledge, and the idea that the brewery would share all the information behind the brewing process, including the recipes. We aim to work with other breweries and local home brewers to test new recipes and experiment with innovative ideas. Like a university or college, Faculty Brewing Co. is meant to be a place of idea-sharing and collaboration.
