If you want an on premise crafted pint whilst enjoying some fresh entrées from locally sources suppliers I can't think of a better place in Kamloops.

I believe it is a locally owned and operated establishment with a seasonal beer menu of mostly house brews paired with seasonal entrées.

Whenever I'm up in Kamloops I make a point of dropping by for lunch.

KELOWNA needs a quality brew pub like the Noble Pig.

Visited whilst in Kamloops overnight. What a nice surprise! I figured Kamloops might not be the end of the world, beer-wise. but you'd be able to see it from there. Wrong! Noble Pig is a very acommodating bar/restaurant with a decent selection of their own brews. Which are good. Food is good, too. Wait staff is attentive and knows their stuff. Highly recommended if you happen to be in Kamloops. (But who "happens" to find themselves in Kamloops, for chrissake??)

What a great spot! Lots of super solid beer choices and great food! A great location either in or outside and fantastic service. I couldn't recommend this place higher if in Kamloops.

I stopped in for a very quick lunch and had a flight of tasters. They brew a fairly good variety of styles.

The ESB was really nice, though just a bit sweet for my taste.

They had a special pale ale on tap, I thought they gave me the Belgian, turns out there was orange rind in it. I really didn't care for it much. Service was great, they actually gave me a sample of the Belgian as well, which was very similar, though a bit peppery.

Mocha porter was awesome, really great recipe. I'd drink this regularly if it was available.

The IPA was nicely attenuated and had a good dose of hops.

I took a growler of the house lager to go. I'm not sure what yeast they use, but I thought it was a lot like a Kolsch. Great summer drinker.

Food was quite good for pub grub.

Next time I'm headed to the loop, I'll definitely take the growler for a refill.

New brewpub in what I considered was a beer wasteland. From what I understand the head brewer used to brew for Big Rock - if this is correct, Big Rock could do with re-hiring this guy. While the space is large, it feels welcoming and is well done. Lots of wood, but not in a fake neo-pub way. Didn't try the food, but the menu looked promising. Excellent service, that was knowledgeable at least as it pertained to their beer (which is a minimum) and very personable. Currently the brewed on premise tap list is:

House Lager
Fascist Pig Pilsner
IPA
Mocha Porter
Peppered Belgian Ale
ESB
and a seasonal - which was a Scotch Ale that had 12 year Highland Park added to it.

The bottles are limited to Keiths, Corona, and Miller - woe is the fool that orders one of these. You can order pints, flights or growlers to go.

All and all very well done, particularly considering the locale. Would definitely make a point of stopping in on our next trip through.
