An award-winning nano-brewery set in the Monashee Mountains of the southwest Kootenays.
While Ryan Arnaud and Petri Raito ran a U-Brew company called Trail Brewing they realized there was great demand for craft beer in their area. So they purchased a small nanobrewery system from a brewery in North Vancouver that was expanding and opened Rossland Beer Company. It’s a small operation with a tasting room that overlooks the brewing area in the basement below. Locals and visitors enjoying the nearby Red Mountain Ski Resort definitely like the beer being served there, and so did the judges at the 2015 Canadian Brewing Awards, who awarded Rossland’s Seven Summits Milk Stout a gold medal.
