F-314-5-4 · Sub-series · [ca. 195-]-[201-]
Part of Dave Smith fonds

Sub-series consists of Smith's collection of beer bottles from British Columbia breweries. Items are organized by brewery, with files created for each brewery, arranged alphabetically. No attempt has been made to date individual bottles. The bulk are from breweries belonging to the craft beer movement and were established in the period from 1982 to the 2010s. There are a number of bottles from early BC craft breweries, including a bottle of Bay Ale by BC's first craft brewery, the Horseshoe Bay Brewing Company (file 13). The sub-series also includes several bottles from older BC breweries that predate the craft beer movement, including the Columbia Brewing Company (file 10), the Pacific Western Brewing Company (file 22), Uncle Ben's Tartan Brewery (file 35) and Vancouver Breweries Ltd. (file 36). The oldest of these is estimated to date to ca. 1950s.
