What began initially as a hobby for a small group of friends has emerged as Prince George's newest micro-brewery.
After more than a year of preparation, Trench Brewing has officially opened the doors of its own tasting room. The space boasts an impressive brewing operation, with seven 1,200 litre Newlands Brewings tanks, and a 1,000 litre kettle which owners hope to use for distilling vodka and gin. The brewery has many local brews on tap, most named after popular outdoor landmarks that will be familiar to locals. Many have already made an appearance at downtown Prince George restaurants such as Kask and Hummus Brothers.
"All of our beers are pretty well named after areas of the Rocky Mountain Trench," co-owner Craig Schwenning said.
"On the continental divide, we love the outdoors."
