Sunday, March 24 - Backroads Brewing Company

Pure Water. Legendary Town. A downtown hub.

Check out the brew-pub, located on the historic Baker Street in Nelson, BC. Come by for a pint, live music, local art, and a vibe that is unique to Nelson, but that will make you feel right at home.

Small batches brewed frequently mean that they have a constant rotation of fresh beer on tap. There are 8 taplines that host a wide variety of traditionally-inspired ales and lagers, all brewed to their Brewmaster's keen eye for quality and consistency.

Sunday, March 24 - Torchlight Brewing Co.

Torchlight Brewing Co. started as an idea that two friends, Josh and Craig, had while enjoying some craft beer on a patio in Halifax. Inspired to open their own brewery back in their home town of Nelson, the friends set out on a path that changed their lives. First, they opened a nano-brewery in June of 2014, but found demand for their beer was outpacing their ability to make it. They then set about expanding into a proper micro-brewery, complete with a full lounge. This dream became realized in May 2017 as the new brewery rapidly filled with thirsty patrons. Torchlight continues striving to make the most delicious and innovative craft beers around.
