“In terms of craft beer selection, I'd put Brickhouse below the Northern and Fernie Hotel. It's 8 taps here, 4 Fernie and 4 Phillips. Got a new tick, though. The food is a bit higher end than those other establishments, but still pub food.“

“Has a cozyish pub feel, and a good selection of craft brew on tap. It's about on par with the Northern for best in town. In Fernie there's only so many coastal breweries that get their beer out here - Phillips, Strange Fellows, Stanley Park are a few of the main ones - and so the selection isn't bad but you're definitely in a remote corner of the province. Anyway, half the pubs in Fernie have the same cozy brick 20 taps apres vibe and they have that here.“

“Ok store for craft beer, has some singles, including a couple of Fernie Brewing ones that aren't on tap at the brewery. It's more testament to Fernie not having great distribution from coastal breweries - and by government rules it's hard to get Alberta beer here. So someone the Pass, which is the closest brewery outside of town, can't just drive over and drop a bunch of beer off. Anyway, I feel like it's not a craft beer mecca but they're doing what they can and when in town, it's probably the store to stop at.“

“As Fernie goes, Northern has one of the better selections. Four local taps and the list then includes other BC breweries that do distro out here, like Driftwood, Phillips, Neighbourhood, and the like. So unlike most places in town that just have Fernie Brewing beer, you get options. Nice wooden bar, cozy vibe like most places in town. Good service. So all told, solid.“

“Kind of sucked getting here with road work right on the bridge north of town, and on the far east part of town. Otherwise it's a spacious modern brewery and tasting room setup with scads of cans for takeaway. Flights are available along with growler fills. Fernie is widely distributed and generally reliable in that macro microbrewery kind of way. A good stop for take-away or a flight or two.“

“Just a few minutes northeast of the town centre on Hwy 3, the tasting room overlooks a gorgeous mountain backdrop. Fairly small but modern-feeling tasting room, with a nice patio outfront with the great views. 10-12 taps when I went, but they weren't doing flights due to COVID, even though they were happy to give tastes. Since most of their beers are available in Vancouver, not many were new to me. Solid beers and very friendly staff. Definitely worth a stop when in Fernie.“

“Stopped in with my wife for a break on a long car ride home from the States. Nice modern tasting room with swag for sale and seating outside as well. Fast and friendly service even though it was crazy busy. Employees were helpful. Selection wasn't great, probably a dozen beers on tap. No food. Flights were $6. Coolers had 6 packs and 650ml bottles for sale. Worth a stop if you're in the area.“

“2018-09-19. We stopped in for after dinner drinks on a weeknight. Decent selection of BC craft beer was enough for a few ticks for me but nothing super exciting for beer geeks today. “

“2018-09-19. Small shop conveniently located right next to my hotel. Good selection of Fernie brewing offerings, and local craft. Selection of singles was less than hoped for unfortunately. Service was friendly enough. Worth a stop if you are close by and out of towners will find something but given the emphasis on Fernie products you might do almost as well to just hit Fernie Brewing if you have more time than I did.“

“2018-09-19. Smallish Mexican restaurant. Decor is simple leaning towards posh/hipster. Server is friendly and accommodating for our large group. Cocktails and tequila seem to be the drinks focus but they have a pretty decent selection of 5-10 (I forget how many) local BC craft beers. Food is not the cheapest at $4-5 / taco but I thoroughly enjoyed mine so well worth it. The Drunken Beef (?) being my favorite. “

“A good place for a feed and some local beers in Fernie main street. As others have noted, beer is not the main focus here but they have some decent taps on offer and the food is very good. Ambience was good but our service was a little patchy. They have an outdoor sitting area too but we chose the spacious indoor room.“

“A bar in an awkward converted building off the main drag. A blue collar/hippie hang out gives it a bit of a local vibe. Service was pleasant but not beer focused. They don’t have much craft, but they do carry everything from Fernie. They also don’t do flights.“

“Solid corner restaruant/bar on the main drag in the town of Fernie. When I visited (random Saturday afternoon in August), there was a band playing indoors. Also a handful of tables outside on the sidewalk. Believe there were 8 taps - all BC and Alberta beers. Fernie Brewing and Mt Begbie were the two I tried, but all the choices were solid. Food was great. Think tapas and flatbread pizzas. A great stop in a fairly touristy place.“

“Awesome location just outside (North) of Fernie in a small industrial/commercial park. Pretty building with the requisite re-purposed chairlift for abrewery near a ski resort. I would definitley have rated it higher, as their beers are super solid and it’s a neat space, but due to some regulation or another, as they are considered a ’tasting room’, you can only consume 12oz of beer in a visit (so either 4 3-ounce samplers or 1 12-ounce pour). They do takeaway and Growler fills, but wish I could have had another full pour and lingered a bit longer. Nonetheless - well worth a stop in the area.“

“OMG how gorgeous is this town? Swoon!! The brewery is a great reason to stop here even if you weren’t going to stop here, which is how we ended up...and this town is surrounded by these incredible mountains. Taproom itself is nothing much, but they do have a few tables and a growler station, and even a chairlift bench out front. Anyway, I was not expecting much as the Fernie beers I’ve had in cans and bottles were meh, but it just goes to show you should always drink from the source...the beers were all really fresh. What stood out for me were the pils and the IPA. For whatever reason, their beers don’t stay fresh for long so it really does pay to visit the brewery before making a determined judgment.“

“On the service road beside Hwy 3, on the eastern edge of town. Good service, we bought a growler. Bought some bottles and had a taster flight. Nothing too special.“

“Easy to find, as it is pretty much the first building you pass on the highway as you enter Fernie from the east. It is a handsome red towering structure, you almost can’t miss it. Very new feel, small tasting room full of swag for purchase. Generous with their samples. Only Fernie product on tap and in bottle. No food. Closed on weekends.“

“The brewery has a small tasting room, wtih 2 of their standard offerings (The Pale Ale and the Brown Ale), and their 2 seasonals (What the Huck and Ol Willy Wit) on tap. Clean and well-lit, samples were 2-3oz. and were free of charge. Oddly, they had pint glasses,but you were unable to actually buy a pint... Only things offered for sale were 650s of their seasonals, and 6pks of their standard offerings. Worth stopping by if you’re in Fernie anyway, but not worth driving out of your way.“
