Located just off Hwy 3 east of Fernie BC, our Brewery features a Tap Room and Store, alongside our ever-expanding on-site production facility. It is also home to Fernie’s finest beer aficionados and creative beer-fuelled minds.
Our Store is open year round for cold beer, glasswear, Growlers and our "Cheers to Charity" Tasting program.
New summer 2016, a fun mountain and beer filled adventure, here in Fernie!
The Fernie Brewing Co. Trail To Ale Challenge, consists of bagging three peaks, on bike or foot, within 24hrs. Bikers, runners or hikers have to get to the top of Hyper Ventilation, Project 9 & Swine Flu, in any order, within the time limit. Of course you have to 'prove it' with timestamped selfies next to the on-trail signs, as well as at the Brewery at both the start and the finish.
After you've shared the evidence to our Tasting Room staff, you'll be rewarded with a cold beer and a Trail to Ale medal. The purchase of (more) salty nuts, is optional.
Share your journey along the way, using hashtag #trailtoalefernie @ferniebrewingco. And of course, if you're looking for extra glory, 'prove it' on Strava...
It's done for this year, but will be back....possibly this winter with a snowshoe/run/fat bike version, and definitely next summer with plans for a little change to the route!
Find out exactly what this means to Fernie Brewing Co., as we celebrate giving back to our local community! Thanks to the East Kootenay Community Credit Union, who have been involved since the beginning, supporting our start up back in 2003, and have since allowed and assisted us in the growth and development you see today.

With a busy summer of production, we aren't currently offering tours, however with a fully stocked Tasting Room and Store open 6 days a week, we look forward to seeing you at the Brewery to sample some beer fresh from the source.
At FBC we have a great collection of goodies to help you show off your allegiance to your favourite hometown brew. From T's to toques and hoodies to hats, we've got you covered. Available both in our storefront and online.
