“It’s always a great feeling escaping the city and visiting communities around the province!” – Aaron Johnson.
Aaron visited Alberni Brewing Company, a new brewery that recently opened up in Port Alberni, where he sat down with co-owner Heather Welsh.
Founded by Heather and Jason Welsh in partnership with Yvan St. Onge, a local chef, Alberni Brewing features spacious seating, a fireplace, an outdoor patio, and a full kitchen serving a wide range of delicious dishes alongside tasty beers. Head Brewer Jason Welsh brings years of homebrewing experience and passion to the beer lineup, which includes core standards alongside rotating seasonals.
A few things Aaron learned:
- Alberni Brewing opened just four days before full COVID restrictions were initiated in the province.
- The brewery also features a full kitchen with an excellent menu.
- Heather is originally from Wales, but met her husband who is originally from Port Alberni, while overseas.
