The newest offering from Penticton's Cannery Brewing

Cannery Brewing offering limited release beer

This brew is the latest limited release beer in the Artisan Creations series from Cannery Brewing.

The Darkling oatmeal stout from Cannery Brewing certainly fits this bill of people turning to darker and richer beer as the dark evenings of fall become longer. This brew is the latest limited release beer in the Artisan Creations series from Cannery Brewing.

Like the other beers in Cannery Brewing’s Artisan Creations series, the Darkling label is an artistic creation designed to match the artistry of the beer. The Darkling name was inspired by a line from Lord Byron’s famous poem, Darkness — ‘The bright sun was extinuish’d, and the stars did wander darkling in the eternal space.’

“Poetry and beer go hand in hand …  The balance and rhythm in both creates a seamless artistry that rolls over your palate and lingers, waiting to be deciphered,” said Ross Thompson, head brewer.

“At 5.5 per cent alc./vol. and with 30 IBU’s, our Darkling oatmeal stout balances smooth mouth feel with bittersweet roasted flavours to brighten the blackest of days or the darkest of Lord Byron’s poems. We were thrilled to work again with the very talented Okanagan-based artist and designer Myron Campbell to design this dark yet impactful label. Myron is a professor at the University of British Columbia Okanagan Campus, a Governor General’s Gold Medal award winner and a true lover of craft beers,” said Thompson. “We are totally stoked with the flavour profile of this beer and the label design for this Artisan Creation.”

Cannery Brewing’s Darkling is a limited release that will be available in 650 ml bottles at private craft-beer focused liquor stores and restaurants throughout B.C. and at select liquor stores in Alberta until it is gone. It is also available in Cannery Brewing’s tap room by the glass and for growler fills. For a list of private liquor stores carrying the 650ml Darkling bottles, see

In addition, two cans of the Darkling will be the featured brewer’s choice option in The Cannery Collection mixed six pack this fall, from October to December.
