Our Story

Detonate has come a long way since it first exploded into the emerging Summerland brewery scene in 2017. 

The original owner, Nathan Rosin, founded the nano-brewery and the label became popular with locals around the valley. In 2022, Nate decided it was time to pass the torch and found a young, enthusiastic, budding brewer in Jonah Cadieux-Johnson. Jonah was fresh off a long cycling trip and ready for his next adventure. He was new to brewing but jumped in headfirst learning the trade under his new mentor Nate. He began operations with Nate and, absorbed all he could during his apprenticeship.

Now, after learning to brew and completely redoing the tasting room, Jonah is ready to bring Detonate back into the brewing scene with a mix of brews of original run and new beers of his own creation. Jonah says, “Detonate values the classics that many patrons love, but we aren’t afraid to take chances when it comes to mixing up new beers.”  At Detonate, you’ll find something to meet everyone’s taste from a crisp clean pilsner to a sweet and zesty wheat ale to a thick dark IPA and a zippy taco beer. 

While Detonate brews may not yet be on shelves in the liquor store, the taproom is open for tastings, growler fills, and an explosive time.
