“Never hit the backcountry alone”.
The crew at the soon-to-be-opened Backcountry Brewing is on a mission to have your back on any and all Sea to Sky adventures.
Hammers have been swinging wildly at their 6000 square foot location on Queens Way, and the brewery is poised to open mid-March.
The Brewmaster From Steamworks
Beer has been brewing and kegs are getting filled with beer crafted by their lead brewer, John Folinsbee, a recent transplant from Steamworks Brewery in Vancouver. His last recipe, Flagship IPA, garnered the Best in Show award at the 2016 BC Beer Awards, foreshadowing good things for the beer list at Backcountry Brewing.
Are you a fan of cold beers chilling in a creek after a big ride? Ice cold brews and a hot day at the lake? Beer and nature seemingly go hand in hand.
The Backcountry is Better with Cans
Backcountry Brewing is all about the “Beer in Nature” feel. Investment in a state-of-the-art canning system backs up the commitment to this vibe.
Canning is touted as a more reliable packaging method over bottling. Cans more efficiently preserve the freshness of the beer, and present the product in a handy package that is portable, adventure-resistant, and great to chill in an ice-cold stream.
