EST. 2014 | Quesnel

There’s gold in them thar hills! Or at the very least, delicious golden beers from this award-winning gold rush-themed brewery.

Located at the confluence of the Fraser and Quesnel rivers along the historic Cariboo Gold Rush Trail, Barkerville Brewing takes its name from the nearby ghost town/tourist attraction. The gold rush theme is evident throughout the welcoming tasting room with pioneer relics and a rustic wooden communal table dominating the room.

In addition to beer names steeped in local history — like the Hurdy Gurdy Hibiscus or the Wandering Camel IPA — Barkerville’s brews often use local ingredients, too, like birch syrup or chaga mushroom. The beers are worth the trip; Barkerville won two golds and a bronze at the 2016 B.C. Beer Awards, sending the message that northern beer is not to be ignored.

Fun Fact:

Barkerville Brewing is one of the few breweries in B.C. run almost entirely by women. Fully 80% of its staff, including the head brewer and general manager, are female — this despite the fact that the brewery’s logo is an old style moustache!
