What would a local meal be without a local beer? In 2005, three locals and a close friend opened the Jasper Brewery Company with one goal: create the “highest quality beer experience possible.” Any brewery that refers to beer as an experience is worth a taste test! They source their malts and hops from all over the world to get the best possible quality. However, their signature comes in their home cultured yeast and their glacial waters direct from the Canadian Rockies. The Jasper Brewery Company offers several food classics to compliment the beer and complete your dining experience.
