Located in downtown Vernon BC, Marten Brewery and Pub open their doors in 2015. Voted as one of British Columbia’s Best tasting rooms, the space is large and open with the brewery visible from almost every vantage point in the pub. Recently, the team has started creating things other than beer with their Kombucha brand UnderGround Beverages. I sat down with owner Stefan Marten and brewmaster Joe Strickland.
I connected with the Brewers Association's Chief Economist Bart Watson on how the beer industry is doing in 2019. This has become a bit of an annual chat so I was excited to talk numbers and see how the industry has changed from last year.
