Mt. Begbie Brewing Company was established in 1996 and won Canadian Brewery of the Year in 2017. The brewery is located in the heart of the rugged Columbia mountain range, which is an ideal place to make beer. The scenery is great, the water is mountain fresh and crystal clear. And the town is steeped in the kind of rugged, fun-loving history that just goes naturally with a good brew.
Our beer is 100% natural. Only malted barley, hops, yeast, and water are used. Non pasteurized, no additives or preservatives are included.
Tail Whip (our seasonal spring brew) is artfully blended with 100% BC ingredients. It is made with barley grown and malted in Northern BC, hops from Eagle Valley Hops in Malakwa, and of course Revelstoke's own pure mountain water.
Attila the Honey (our seasonal summer beer) uses natural clover honey from Vernon B.C.
Our brewery is an all-grain brewhouse. We do not use any syrups, corn grits, rice etc. The bulk of our grain is purchased from Gambrinus Malting in Armstrong, B.C. Specialty roasted varieties come from Briess Malting in the United States.
Fun fact – Bart Larson, owner, has a Phd in nuclear physics, but he prefers to make beer not war!
Our retail store is open Monday-Saturday 9am-8pm, Tasting Room 11:30am-9pm & Tours run at 4pm (we are closed Sundays). We are family friendly!
