It was a pleasure to visit the taproom and taste the diverse list of beers on tap at White Sails. Nanaimo’s new downtown staple saw a lot of traffic and reveled in a very successful first few days of business.
Thanks to everyone who participated in our photo contest over the weekend! We received some outstanding entries that do a great job of highlighting the space at White Sails.
The #WhiteSailsOpening contest winner is Matt Lineker (@mattandhiscellphone) for this stunning shot:

Our choice for runner-up is Matt Carter (@mic_control1) for this entry:
And sneaking into the honourable mention category is this snap from @old_mill:
I hope everyone enjoys the pours at White Sails as much as I did on Saturday.
(The chocolate porter was a knockout – absolutely one of the best chocolate beers I’ve ever tried.)
