The new Brew Hut is a UBC Varsity Outdoor Club hut, paerched at a high col just south of Mt. Brew. It sleeps 12 comfortably.
The VOC describes the hut as “very well insulated and has a wood stove. Please use firewood very sparingly. In 2014 we spent about $6500 to helicopter wood in. VOC huts are open to all non-motorized users. A $10 per person per night fee applies to pay for hut maintenance. The fee can be left at the hut in the blue drop box or sent in to the VOC by mail. VOC trips have priority during fall and winter holidays (New Years, Reading Week, Easter) so please contact the VOC before planning a trip during this time. Commercial groups are requested to contact the VOC before using any of the huts. There is a lost and found page for items in and around the VOC huts.”
No reservations are taken, but please see the VOC hut registration page to help coordinate use.

There is one Coleman lantern for light. There is a two burner Coleman Stove which will leak gas, so don't use it. These appliances use white gas only, and VOC does not supply white gas.
A newly installed solar light should hold around 30 hours of charge, if it is charging in the sun - which it probably is not. Turn it on for an hour with the black button, and turn it off manually with the red button.
