The Jasper Brewing Co was opened in the spring of 2005 and was Canada’s first National Park Brewery. Three of the founders were born and raised in Jasper, and from the early years of their experiences in the food and beverage industry they felt there was a large demand for a “local” brew. Combine that with a love for beer – and they decided to open a brewpub.
The Banff Ave Brewing Co
was founded in 2010 by Pete Korogonas, Socrates Korogonas, Alex Derksen, Brett Ireland and Daniel Rodrigues. With their success at the Jasper Brewing Company they decided to expand their horizons and look for other markets where great handcrafted beer would be appreciated and admired.
The Wood Buffalo Brewing Co
(located in the Wood Buffalo area of Fort McMurray) opened in January 2013 and is one of the largest brewpub and eateries in Canada. The immense popularity amongst locals and tourists alike in Jasper and Banff combined the growing interest and demand for quality, local beer has created inspired us to expand into Fort McMurray. Steven Sachse, a local of Fort McMurray since 2005, has joined our team as an Owner Operator and will be bringing years of local food and beverage experience with him.
The Bear Hill Brewing Co was established in 2012 and is the parent company to our breweries. Keep an eye out for future brewpubs and projects under the moniker of Bear Hill Brewing Co.
