The good ol’ craft beer revolution just keeps chugging along! Here is a list of new breweries and cideries expected to open in the coming year.

Boltage Brewing

Squamish (2023) This is a new venture from the owner of Streetcar Brewing in North Vancouver.

Checkerhead Brewing

Shirley (2023?) We thought this one would be open by now, but progress has definitely slowed down. #IslandTime?

Encore Brewing

Cranbrook (2023) This new brewery located in a converted bowling alley will have 8 lanes of 5-pin bowling along with a restaurant, ping pong tables, axe throwing, and more!

Everyday Brewing

Nanaimo (?) Unfortunately this brewery is stuck in limbo as they seek a space. @everydaybrewingcompany

Hudson Brewhouse & Distillery

Victoria (2022?) Will this brewpub across the street from the Save-On Foods Memorial Centre arena ever open?

Jordan River Brewing

Jordan River (?) No new progress report here, but since this would be an amazing location for a brewery on the remote southwest coast of Vancouver Island, we’re keeping it on this list with fingers crossed!

Lumberjack Brewing

Grand Forks (2023) Follow along on Instagram to watch a timber-frame brewery built from the ground up. @lumberjackbrewco

Post & Row Brewing

Dawson Creek (?) The pandemic slowed the Post & Row taphouse’s plans to add its own brewery, but they are still working towards that goal.

Railside Brewing

Kelowna (summer 2022) Once open, this brewery will be located right next to the Kettle Valley Rail Trail, which will make it a great destination for cyclists. @RailsideBrewingKelowna

Long-term watch list: 2 Dads Brewing (Victoria), Citizen Brewing Kelowna, Connector Brewing (Kelowna), Tiki Jon’s Lounge & Brewery (Pitt Meadows), Trailhead Brewing (Cranbrook).
