Barkerville Brewing Co.

Beer has long held an esteemed place in British Columbia’s Cariboo region. The original Barkerville Brewery and Brewery Hotel were built in the 1860s, located in an empty lot between the town’s drugstore and Masonic Hall.

Today, Barkerville Brewing Co. is headed by Russ Ovans, a Victoria, BC native and computer scientist by profession, and Troy Rudolph, a seasoned brewmaster whose past experience includes running the floor at Township 7 winery in Naramata, BC.
