Experience craft beer amid the rugged beauty of mountainous Revelstoke.
Mt. Begbie was named Brewery of the Year at the 2017 Canadian Brewing Awards.
This brewery grew out of a casual honeymoon conversation between founders Bart and Tracey Larson: “Hey, maybe we should open a brewery?” The original idea grew until they found themselves opening a brewery in Bart’s hometown of Revelstoke. More than two decades later, the couple has grown Mt. Begbie to the point that it now ships beer throughout BC. To celebrate their company’s 20th birthday, the Larsons built a big, new brewery on a 10-acre piece of land just off the Trans-Canada Highway near downtown Revelstoke. The new facility has a larger retail shop, dedicated tasting room, commercial kitchen and, of course, increased capacity on the production side.
In 2021, Mt. Begbie Brewing is celebrating its 25th Anniversary.
Bart Larson, who is Mt. Begbie’s brewmaster as well as co-founder, has a PhD in nuclear physics, but he gave up that career to “make beer, not war.” Up until recently, he was likely the most educated brewer in BC, but he now shares that distinction with Category 12 Brewing’s Michael Kuzyk, who has a PhD in microbiology and biochemistry.
