Whilst news from the coast is that spring has long since arrived, local Fernie residents are surprised what each day will bring – sunshine and blue skies, torrential rain, or a few more face shots at the ski hill. Either way, spring is officially here, and as such, here at FBC, we have a plethora of returning and new seasonal brews to brighten up even the greyest of off-season skies… First up is the popular Slow Drift Witbier. Formally known as Ol’ Willy Wit, this Belgian White Ale was rebranded back in the fall of 2016, to drift into line with FBC’s other catchy...Read more
