Many adults have evolved environmental awareness today, and more people are turning to craft beer.
Spinnakers is Canada’s first brewpub. It was established in 1984. It is located in Victoria, British Columbia. They have many flavours of beer such as the Chocoholic Chocolate Milk Stout and Blue Bridge Double Pale Ale. These two delicious flavours are produced using an aquifer that provides mineral water for the brewing process.
Canoe Brewpub produces beers like Helles, a Bavarian-style pale lager and Blueberry Ale. Canoe Brewpub uses a natural carbonation process, which reduces its carbon footprint. Canoe Brewpub is also located in Victoria, British Columbia.
Phillips Brewing has a tasting room, which is a great fun way to sample the various beers that they produce. This company has reduced its carbon footprint by reducing packaging, reducing their water consumption, recapturing their used CO2 and giving their spent grains to local farmers.
Longwood Brewery is located in Nanaimo, on Vancouver Island. This brewery is well known for being locally obsessed. Longwood purchases their barley, hops and other products from local Vancouver Island farmers. Some favourite flavours enjoyed here are the Steam Punk Dunkelweizen and the Berried Alive Raspberry Ale.
Mount Arrowsmith Brewing
Dog walkers welcome. This pet-friendly craft beer brewery also uses locally grown products such as spruce tips and salal berries.
Book a worry-free group van tour to various breweries with Vancouver Brewery Tours. This way, you can enjoy tasting as many brews as you like without worrying about driving a vehicle. There are several tours available, including a stop at the Bridge Brewing. Bridge Brewing is known for its zero-waste approach. They even use unsold bread to make their tangy Rye Cycle beer.
These are just a few but excellent examples of sustainable craft beer producers in Canada.
