Gladstone Brewing Company, Cornerstone Café & Taphouse is proudly owned by Alexandra Stephanson & Daniel Sharratt. Gladstone was opened January 2015 and Cornerstone - May 2016.
They <3 Downtown Courtenay, and <3 how each shop is rich with detail and has its own style and flavour. Each little shop is an experience.
Alexandra and Daniel feel their biggest success is seeing the smiles on their customers' faces. Knowing that they are truly making a difference in their lives by being a place where friends meet - where people can grow and relax with friends old and new.
Similar to other Downtown Courtenay business owners their biggest challenge is balancing family life and professional life. They want to give so much of themselves to both.
Their inspiration has always had deep roots in community-building. Gladstone has made so many amazing friends in the beer industry, all of whom have helped lift them up. At Cornerstone, their friends in the arts and cultural community have helped them deliver eclectic programming to their space. They couldn't do any of this without their community, and they look forward to serving them for many years to come!
