Although the craft beer industry as a whole is facing some economic challenges in this post-pandemic world and consumers seem to be drinking less beer overall, we are still seeing some new breweries opening around British Columbia. Here are some more to look forward to.

Boltage Brewing

Squamish (coming soon) Boltage’s social media feeds and website have been saying “Coming Soon to Downtown Squamish” for a while now.

Bridge Brewing Pemberton

North Vancouver (fall 2024) Bridge is opening a second brewery location in the same area as Beva Brewing & Blending in the Norgate neighbourhood.

Connector Brewing

West Kelowna (spring/summer 2024) 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.

Hastings Mill Brewing

Port Coquitlam (summer/fall 2024) This brewery based in Pat’s Pub in East Van was forced to close in 2021, but recently announced that it will be reopening in a new location in Port Coquitlam later this year.

House of Lager

Squamish (summer 2024) This offshoot of House of Funk Brewing is under construction as part of the Oceanfront Squamish development.

Jordan River Brewing

Jordan River (2024) Construction is underway 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.

Long-term watch list: Curious Creatures Beer Co. (Fraser Valley), Everyday Brewing (Nanaimo), Lumberjack Brewing (Grand Forks), Strathcona Brewing – North Shore (North Vancouver), Trailhead Brewery (Cranbrook).
