I’ve traveled all over Cascadia so far in this series, but this is the furthest north I’ve been so far. I’m in Smithers, BC, a community with a population around 6,000. I wanted to know the challenges of opening a brewery so far North and what the communities response has been. So I stopped in and talked with Smithers Brewing Company and spoke with brewmaster Cameron McKeigan.
Located in East Vancouver… Or in the brewing world commonly referred to as “Yeast Van” is a brewery unlike any other in Canada. Callister Brewing is home to multiple breweries sharing the space to test and grow their brands.
