Coming Soon: Bulkley Valley Brewery

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!


The Journey Begins

Fermentation may have been a better invention than fire. — David Rains Wallace

Everyone who knows us knows one thing – we love breweries. Everywhere we go we find one, be in a mexican jungle, or small town in Northern, BC – if they brew it, we will come.

Now since you’re new here (don’t worry we are too) let’s find out who “we” are.

Kayla and myself (Jenn) met in 2013 in Vancouver, BC. Growing up in Winnipeg, MB and Calgary, AB respectively, it was nice to meet on less snowy ground. 

Blah blah blah fast-forward to August 27, 2016 and BAM. Married. 

Now our love story is not what you came here for. Beer. Beer. Beer.

Since dating, we both found a love for craft breweries. They were always something constant on our trips, and in our daily lives. 

Somewhere new? Google brewery. Somewhere needed for a birthday? Brewery. Somewhere for an afternoon with the dogs? Brewery.

It’s a nice constant in our life and travels, and one we hope to continue to share with you all. Oh and to collect some cool cups along the way!
