As we adjust to the changing of the seasons and prepare for (fingers crossed) another epic winter in Fernie, we wanted to remind our supportive guests that the pandemic is on-going and as the situation continues to evolve, so will our policies.


Our number one concern at this time is keeping our staff and our guests safe.


What we’re doing: ⁣

  • Tables and chairs in the Tasting Room have been positioned in line with Provincial guidelines and we are operating at reduced capacity. ⁣
  • ⁣Tables are sanitized after each guest, and high contact touch points and washrooms are being sanitized frequently. ⁣
  • Plexi-glass has been added at the bar to allow for safe seating here.
  • When not behind the Plexi-glass, Tasting Room staff are required to wear masks.
  • ⁣Our team is washing their hands between all contact, and there is hand sanitizer available for you. ⁣
  • ⁣We are offering 12oz glasses, merch, beer to go and growler fills, but no Sample Flights at this time. ⁣
  • ⁣All merch tried on but not purchased is being quarantined before being put back on the shop floor. ⁣
  • ⁣Growlers are being filled with a different sanitized hose each time. ⁣We are disinfecting the outside of the growler before giving it back to you, and we will put on a clean cap. ⁣⁣
  • ⁣Please use contactless payment. We are not currently accepting cash.

What we expect from our guests:⁣

  • If you are feeling sick, please do not enter the Tasting Room. ⁣
  • Wearing a mask is now mandatory for entry into the Tasting Room and masks must continue to be worn unless you are sat at your table / the bar.
  • There is a maximum of 6 people to a table and you cannot move between tables.
  • ⁣At peak hours you may have to wait for a table before you can enter the Tasting Room. Please be patient and respect the instructions of our team. We suggest avoiding peak hours if possible, which are 3pm – 6pm daily.
  • ⁣Please respect physical distancing, by staying 2m (6ft) away from other guests and staff. ⁣
  • ⁣Please follow all signage, and do not touch the bar at this time. ⁣
  • ⁣For growler fills, please thoroughly clean and remove caps before bringing them in.⁣


We are also still offering FBC FlyBy  if this is more comfortable for you.
