A popular brewery in Kelowna is undergoing some identity changes.

Tree Brewing is now known as the Kelowna Beer institute, but loyal customers are reassured that they’ll still have the same great beer.

“Our new name has actually been our legal name since 2016 when Dave and Chris purchased the business from Tree Brewing,” the company explained in a post on Facebook.

“We feel that it is time to bring this name to the forefront as it better reflects who we are and what we brew. We are proud to be a Kelowna based brewery that brews on site and has a passion to educate people about the wonderful world of making craft beer.”

As of today, customers will notice a few cosmetic changes at the brewery as they get their new name out there.

“The beer is still the same great beer made by Dave and served unfiltered tank to tap, the food is still the same delicious beer inspired items you love, and our fantastic team of beer geeks and kitchen staff are still here to ensure you have a fantastic time when in the Kelowna Beer Institute,” they added.
