BC’s easternmost brewery is a family-run operation with a strong connection to its local community.
When Fernie Brewing Co. opened in 2003 it was based in a barn on the Pask family farm. At first, thanks to all the ski hills around Fernie, it was busier in the winter than it was in the summer, which is usually a brewery’s busiest season. Before long it was popular enough to be busy year-round, and in 2007 the brewery moved into its own purpose-built facility on the highway just outside the town centre. Fernie Brewing Co. has grown into one of British Columbia’s most successful breweries, distributing its beer throughout BC and across the prairie provinces.
