Is there a better time to be a hophead in British Columbia than right now? As the birthplace of craft breweries in Canada, British Columbia has its fair share of beers to sample. Here are ten craft beers (and the awesome breweries they came from) to try in British Columbia.
1. Fernie Brewing Company: Project 9
I’ll admit some bias here, I live in Fernie and it would be hard to write a list of craft beers and not include FBC. But they are included here on merit. Project 9 is a true Bavarian Pilsner, brewed with Munich, Pilsner and Pale Western Canadian malts. Named after a kick-ass mountain bike trail in Fernie, P9, as it’s referred to locally, is a crisp, clean and throughly enjoyable beer. Best sampled after a steaming hot summer’s day mountain biking.
