WHERE DID ALL THE GOOD PICKLES GO?We’re two guys from Vancouver (Chris and Scott) who couldn't find a good tasting pickle anywhere. So we decided to start a pickle company to always have our own supply. So where do you find the best tasting pickles? That's easy, New York. Just ask Scott Kaylin a born and bred New Yorker who says “It’s 120 years of pickle making history rolled into one great pickle." But it's a lot of things mixed together really like good ingredients, hard work and a desire to stop at nothing until you get the perfect taste. We offer Jalapeño, Kosher Dill, Half Sour, Horseradish, Mustard, Spicy Dill and Full Sour pickles, and others. All served deli style right out of pails, like Lower East Side New York. And they're Gluten Free, Vegan and Kosher too. You can enjoy our pickles with a West Coast IPA, on your favorite beach watching Floatplanes land or leaning against a fridge.

Main Street Brewery, 33 Acres Brewery, East Van Brewery, PKLS Burgers, Yaletown Brewery, Red Truck Brewery, Portside Pub, The Blarney Stone, Chachi’s, Colony Bar Main, Colony Bar Kits, Rosemary Rocksalt, TURF, Argo Café, Steel + Oak Brewing Co., The Charles Bar, The Arbutus Club and The Tuck Shoppe.
Q. Do you ship?
A. Unfortunately not at this time, our pickles last up to 30 hours out of the fridge so shipping can be quite expensive. We do however sell a Pickle Traveler at our Granville Island location, it’s a container designed for checked luggage if you’re flying.
Q. How long do your pickles last in the fridge?
A. Three to four months for our vinegar pickles, the fermented pickles (Half Sour and Full Sour) can last longer, they just get softer but more sour.
Q. Why should I keep them in the brine?
A. Keeping them submerged in the brine extends their shelf life. If after eating a few you find some of them sticking out, cut them in half and stuff them back in to keep them fresh.
Q. Are you in grocery stores?
A. Not yet. Every grocery chain has approached us, however we are taking our time to find the best fit for our brand. Join our mailing list to find out when we will be coming to your area.
Q. Do you have fermented pickles?
A. Absolutely! Our Full Sour and Half Sour pickles are lacto-fermented, however you can only purchase these at our Granville Island Market location and are not available for wholesale/retail.
Q. Are they gluten free?
Q. Any sugar in your pickles?
A. Yes Sweet Reds and Honey Mustard have sugar. All our other pickles have no sugar added.
Q. Can your pickles go across the border to the US?
A. They go all the time. They’re not considered fresh fruit or vegetables so pickles are fine to cross the border.
