Fuggles & Warlock Craftworks

Fuggles and Warlock brewery

You’re probably thinking this post is on something Dungeons and Dragons related, but ’tis not the case. Fuggles & Warlock Craftworks is a brewery. It’s got a silly name, and with the hipster-noble mission of “Keeping Beer Weird” you’d think they’d be in Austin. But they’re well north, in a discreet strip mall off the main drag in Ironwood in Richmond, B.C., Canada.

We stopped by on a Saturday afternoon and walked into a crowded place that was kid-friendly; there was a man with an infant at the bar and a couple with their toddler daughter. We ordered a tasting flight and snagged the edge of a communal table in the corner, with a full view of the brewery floor. You can order snack food, but we weren’t hungry, so it was just beer for us.

My favorite brew was the strawberry wit, which the bartender said is their most popular. It’s quite girlish and summery–it tastes like strawberry-flavored champagne–so it’s not for those who like their beer strong.  We ended up filling the growler with a heavier brew more to hubby’s palate.

Don’t know if we’ll return (it’s out of the way for us), but we did chalk up another good discovery.
