Surprise Point Brewery / Naito Beer

  • Brewer: Ray Naito
  • Established: 2022
After their initial meet-cute in Vancouver, things soon got serious between Ray Naito and craft beer. Their fast-fermenting relationship took them to Brooklyn and back to B.C. before becoming all-consuming in the budding beer scene in Tokyo, Ray’s home. He broke into the industry in Canada’s west, but deep down, there was trouble brewing. Ray discovered he was a gluten intolerance. ~ It took guts (literally), but Ray had to steer clear of beer. However, there is glory to our story. Dedicating himself to brew without the glu, Ray found he didn’t need cereal to keep beer real. Instead of bread, rice and sorghum provided the head. Ray discovered there was life after wheat. Ray and craft beer learned to love again. ~ Ray’s guts. Our glory. Beer with a purpose, brewed with passion.The first dedicated gluten-free craft brewery in BC.
