Our Brewery features a Tasting Room and Storefront, open 7 days a week, located just off Hwy 3, 2 minutes east of Fernie BC. Easily accessible from the Highway, or by bike or on foot from Fernie. What to expect when you get here?

In our Tasting Room, you can choose from enjoying a "Cheers to Charity!" Donation Flight or 12oz glasses. We have up to 12 fresh brews on tap at one time, including Year-Round, Seasonal and Limited Release brews - the best place to try it first! Not to mention our special event casks, tapped in store just for you. As we are a Tasting Room, we serve up to 48oz per person, so you have a chance to sample a few and find your favourite! We also fill growlers, in both 1L and 1.89L, so you can take a little Fernie Brewing Co. home with you, fresh off the tap. 

Limited Release beers are not available for growler fills, except for on the first Wednesday of every month on "All In Growler Day".

Although we don't serve food, we do have some bar snacks to keep you going until you can head into town to one of the many outstanding local bars and restaurants for dinner, and of course, a few more pints of FBC.

If you like to work for your beer, then be sure to check out our FBC Trail to Ale Challenge - open to bikers, runners or hikers challenge yourself to bagging three of Fernie's most iconic peaks, within a 24hr period. The reward is always worth it when there is a free pint waiting for you at the Tasting Room.

And, if you like to truly represent your favourite brew, then be sure to check out our extensive merchandise. Available in-store and online - with free shipping over $100. From T's to tanks, hoodies to hats, bike shirts, glassware and growlers, we've something for every beer lover in the family.
