Take a Tour of Fernie Brewing Co.’s Tasting Room…


Welcome to Fernie Brewing Company Our tasting room is located just off Hwy 3, 2 minutes east from downtown Fernie in the East Kootenays. The most easterly brewery on the BC Ale Trail. Record snowfalls and world-class skiing put Fernie on the map as a winter destination but our small mountain town in the East Kootenays is now a year-round destination with over 300km of mountain bike trails, fantastic hikes, trail running, golf, and world-renowned fly-fishing on the elk river. Situated close to both the US and Alberta border and an hour from the Cranbrook international airport, Fernie is within easy reach for those looking to plan an adventurous beer-cation. Fernie Brewing Company was established in 2003, moving to our current location at 26 Manitou Road in 2007. At our award-winning brewery, we take no shortcuts. We use premium, two row barley malt and European hops. We let our ales age to perfection. We use no fillers, additives, or preservatives. Many of our beers use unique ingredients, such as the huckleberries in What the Huck, the maple syrup in our Sap Sucker maple porter, organic pumpkins in our seasonal pumpkin beer, and local coffee sourced from the Crowsnest Pass in our Java the Hut Coffee Milk Stout. Head Brewer, Jeff Demaniuk believes we have a beer for every taste. From the easy drinking and popular Project 9 Pilsner, to the First Trax Brown Ale, along with unique and hoppy rotating IPA series. With up to twelve year-round, seasonal, limited release beers available on tap you can enjoy a flight, glass, fill a growler, or grab packaged product to go. Our Cheers to Charity program is the most popular offering in the tasting room. We are so fortunate to do business in Fernie and so, wanted to find a way of giving back to our local community. All profits from flights sold in the tasting room are donated to a local charity or organization. It’s our way of saying thanks and to support initiatives which without funds would not be able to operate. With all profits to local charities, clubs and organizations, it’s the most worthwhile beer you’ll have all day. Or, if you know what you want you can enjoy a glass or fill a growler. We have two sizes of growlers available to fill with up to twelve beers to choose from. Once you’ve found your Fernie favourite, you can stock up choosing from cans, bombers, and mixing packs. If you’re looking for a little more, we offer kegs for direct order from the brewery. Both 50L and 30L kegs are available with pumps, systems and tubs to rent. We have an ever-growing selection of merchandise available. Whether you’re looking for tees, tanks, hats or the perfect gift to take home with you there’s a great selection available to buy. If you’re sadly not in Fernie, you can choose from our full selection of merchandise from our online store. We look forward to welcoming you to raise a glass at Fernie Brewing Company. We hope to see you soon.
