Since the grand reopening of our newly renovated Tasting Room early July, Fernie Brewing Co. has been busier than ever. Luckily, this means so has our Cheers to Charity! This program runs year-round, featuring many Charities, Clubs or Organizations who need funds to help launch or grow a special and local initiative. With all profits from the sale of a $5 flight of four beers being passed straight along, it’s a sure-fire way to support the local community. So, cheers! We kicked off our busy summer with our first Charity featured being...Read more
At FBC, you don’t have to stay long before you realize that we love our four-legged friends! When choosing our most recent “Cheers to Charity!” recipient, Fernie Pets was a choice close to both home and the heart of many an FBC staff member. One of things we love most about living in Fernie is the active lifestyle - everyone loves getting outside and dogs are nothing less than part of the family. Fernie Pets has been working since 2011 to create a fully-fenced off-leash Dog Park. An environment where dogs can play with owners and other dogs untethered. A much-needed addition...Read more

Adding that the money will go towards "a whole...Read more

We have been operating the “Cheers to Charity!” donation program since December 2013 . When we started, we had a simple mandate, which was to raise invaluable funds for local Charities, Clubs and Organizations. Invaluable, local, and with the focus of benefitting a group rather than an individual, were perhaps the three fundamental features of the new program, and over two years later, still are. For $5, visitors to the FBC Tasting Room can try four of the eight beers available on tap. Recipients rotate every six weeks, or three months,...Read more
