THE TACKLE BOX LOCAL MARKET
The Tackle Box is our home for all things Okanagan. We expect you’ll be popping in for beer… That said, we’ve also got a treasure trove of local goods waiting for you to explore in our neighbouring shop!
Here’s a list of the mainstays, but you’ll have to come in to check out what’s hot.
Taste of the Okanagan
Working with Taste of the Okanagan, Rustic Reel is creating menu items that combine comfort, flavor, and produce found in the Okanagan. Our Marketplace will have a variety of their specialty products available for purchasing.
Luna Negra Designs
Vancouver artist Vanessa Bogaert has created a line of “brewery jewelry”, inspired to adorn those who love craft beer and cider as much as she does. Her unique, lovingly handmade items come together through lost wax casting, soldering, beading, and leatherwork. Come find her hop-beaded bracelets, beer tap pendants, and some one-of-a-kind reel designs in store!
Up-Cycled Reusable Malt Bags
Rather than tossing all of the bags our malted grains come in, we have enlisted the help of local textile artist Tiffany Moser to up-cycle these bags into reusable grocery/beach bags. With 50% of proceeds going to charity, we hope you will buy one to take all your purchases home in!
Bliss Bar Soaping Co.
This Okanagan-based company makes a variety of handcrafted luxury artisan soaps and has created a line of hops and beer soaps for Rustic Reel Brewing Company. We hope the “soap on a rope” version will bring nostalgic feelings and memories back. It reminds us of the soap our grandpa used to buy.
Rustic Reel Picnic Packs
Come in to the Tackle Box to stock up for your snacking needs. Create your own tackle box picnic pack by filling it with your choice of cheese, meat, crackers, spread, and beer.
It’s the perfect companion for an Okanagan afternoon!
Clothing and Baseball Hats
While not necessarily made in the Okanagan, our merchandise items are branded with our logos and designs by none other than Edge Apparel and Imprints, an amazing family-run company in Vernon. We’ve been able to work very closely together with this company to bring you apparel that looks great and has comfort and quality backing the look as well. We hope you’ll love the clothing just as much as we do!
