When we showed up in Smithers for a fun weekend of picking up our new truck, we thought that would be the highlight of Smithers. Boy were we wrong!
We messaged Dave from Bulkley Valley Brewing (going forward I’m going to call it BVB because I’m trendy – and lazy) on Instagram to ask if they were open for a quick refreshment and unfortunately the stars hadn’t aligned for our trip, and it wouldn’t be ready in time.
BUT Dave, being the charming and debonair guy that he is (told you I’d use it for you), suggested that his equally delightful and suave partner, and BVB’s Head Brewmaster Jeff could take us over for a quick gander.
We met Jeff onsite at the old Dawn2Dusk store and behind the brown paper-lined windows, were greated with a fantastic array of wood and steel, modern and rustic – a sight many will adore once they open their doors in the coming weeks. And mason jars galore, guys after our own heart.
Beer wasn’t ready yet (shucks why bother to even gym this week if we don’t drink any) but we did get a tour of the brew room and all its sparkly goodness, coupled with some well-seasoned fermentation tanks from Wheelhouse Brewing and can advise that Jeff has some pretty awesome brews coming down the pipes.
A new truck, and the promise of a new brewery – I’d say it was a weekend well spent in the town of Smithers, BC!
Follow @bulkleyvalleybrewery on Instagram for the latest on when their doors will open, and in the meantime head over to Dawn2Dusk store for some merch!
