In the short time since it opened, Backcountry Brewing has already become a community hub in Squamish.
Backcountry Brewing has done an impressive job of creating a comfortable, stylish and welcoming tasting room within its larger functional brewing facility. Grab a seat at one of the communal tables and enjoy the lantern lighting and log cabin themes throughout. The extensive beer list features a solid range of styles with a focus on hoppy, hazy IPAs and tart, refreshing sour beers that is balanced by porters, pilsners and special releases. And then there’s the pizza, which is — in a word — incredible. Spend an evening at the long, central table enjoying the beer, pizza and community with some new friends … whoever you end up sitting across from.

Some of Backcountry’s owners also operate a 25-acre farm in Maple Bay on Vancouver Island where they grow nine varieties of hops on five acres of farmland. You can bet that some of those hops end up in beers produced at the brewery in Squamish. Hops grown there include: Cascade, Centennial, Chinook, Glacier, Horizon, Sorachi Ace, Triple Pearl, Ultra and Vangard. The farm also has two acres of cider apples and a big garden growing fruit and vegetables for the Backcountry Kitchen.
