Fernie Brewing Takes Aim at a New Season

(Fernie, BC) – It would be an understatement to say that spring arrived early to Fernie this year. Despite a more than tricky winter for the usual powder haven that is small-town Fernie, locals and visitors alike have seemingly embraced the early change in season, and all the excitement that comes with it. From biking to townie riding, hiking to trail running, flip-flops to shorts. Not to mention beers on the patio.


Since December 2013, Fernie Brewing Co. has been donating all money taken from our paddles of four samples, served in the Tasting Room to a variety of worthy local charities, organizations or clubs.

It’s been a popular addition to our Storefront and Tasting Room, to both the public and recipients. With four recipients a year, each receiving three months worth of sample takings, it soon adds up and makes a huge difference.

Our upcoming Charity, for April - June 2015 is "Elk Valley Hospice".

FBC Launches Hot Saw India Brown Ale

(Fernie, BC) – A new year and a new beer. A hybrid beer, full of malts and flavour. Fernie Brewing Co.’s latest release is an India Brown Ale. Hot Saw India Brown Ale, hitting shelves tomorrow.

[Hot Saw rendering_narrow] “It has a strong malt backbone providing caramel, chocolate, and nutty flavours. Using our hop back and dry hopping methods provides a pleasant and pleasing hop flavour and aroma. And a great variety of malts, a unique avalanche of flavour,” says Brewmaster Gord Demaniuk.

It’s as strong on the outside as it is on the inside. Following in suit of Fernie Brewing Co.’s recent packaging revamp, the Hot Saw 650ml bottle is suitably clad in hoppy green and rich brown, adorned with a burly, plaid wearing lumberjack. With beard, toque, chainsaw and three perfectly cut cookies, of course.

Enter to Win an Electra Townie!

There’s been a whole lot of local buzz surrounding Fernie’s upcoming new seasonal release, following the success and popularity of our recent Project 9 Pilsner, which launched earlier this year, aptly named after one of Fernie’s most popular bike trails.

So keeping with our small-town, bike-paradise roots, Fernie Brewing Co.’s upcoming new brew is named Kickstand Honey Kolsch. Less climbing, more cruising, but equally as refreshing and seasonally appropriate.

Summertime is Festival Time!

(Fernie, BC) – Summer is on. No more inter-season ponderings, with a lack of things to do, or simply waiting for something to start. It’s started and as far as the Craft-Beer world is concerned, it’s a hive of beer-fuelled activity left, right and centre.
