A longtime dream for its founder.

It took nearly 20 years for Brandon Wiggins’ dream of opening a brewery to come true.

He started brewing when he was 16 and later trained at the Siebel Institute of Technology in Chicago. Then he volunteered at Mission Spring Brewpub in Mission and wrote his business plan. He and his wife got the ball rolling by contract brewing at Dead Frog Brewing in 2013. However, they hit a snag with the original name, Crazy Canuck Brewing, when they learned about a beer called Crazy Canuck Pale Ale being brewed in Ontario. So the name was switched to Canuck Empire — jokingly imagining a future spent managing a beverage empire.

It took several more years to pull together everything they needed to make beer and invite people into their own brewery.

This nano brewery is located in Abbotsford’s U-District across the street from Abbotsford Centre. They have 10 beers on tap, food options, and a dog-friendly patio.
