It seems like the pandemic and economic conditions have led to a slowdown in new brewery development, but there still are several breweries in the works that we expect will open in the next year so.

Boltage Brewing

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

Connector Brewing

West Kelowna (2023) Look for this new spot to open in the fall or winter. What makes it unique is that its kitchen menu will be entirely vegan.

House of Lager

Squamish (2024) This offshoot of House of Funk Brewing was announced in an Instagram post back in September.

Jordan River Brewing

Jordan River Brewing Co. (spring 2024) Construction is beginning on this gorgeous new facility that will definitely become a destination brewery close to Juan de Fuca Provincial Park on the way to Port Renfrew. 

Post & Row Brewing

Dawson Creek (2023) This popular taphouse has been working on adding its own brewery for quite a while now, but it’s looking more and more promising that they will be able to brew beer there some time this summer.

Three Lakes Brewing

Kelowna (2023) Founded by three women, this brewery was originally planned for Lake Country but has now finalized a location in the Airport Business Park across the highway from the Kelowna Airport. Watch their social media for regular progress reports.

Long-term watch list: 2 Dads Brewing (Victoria), BREWHA Brewing (Victoria), Citizen Brewing (Kelowna), Everyday Brewing (Nanaimo), Hudson Brewhouse & Distillery (Victoria), Lumberjack Brewing (Grand Forks), Trailhead Brewery (Cranbrook)
