Backroads Brewing Company

Craft ales and lagers, brewed in small batches in the heart of Nelson on Baker Street.  Join them in the intimate taproom where you can enjoy a pint or sampling flight, or grab a growler to go.

Beers on tap:

  • Schwarzbier Black Lager
  • Sipasaurus Rex
  • Dick’s Happy Place Ordinary Bitter
  • El Dorado Golden Ales
  • Saison
  • Pale Ale
  • Nut Brown Ale
  • First Descent Northwest IPI
  • Jolene Bourbon Barrel Aged Smoked Baltic Porter

The 1,300 sq ft taproom has a modest capacity of 100 patrons. The room is designed to evoke a cozy, backcountry cabin feel, just like those found up in the backroads of Nelson. In the warmer seasons, the front patio is offered for an additional 20 people to enjoy a drink right on Baker Street.

They are all about local: the wood in the taproom is from local mills and forests, the custom-made furniture and fixtures were fabricated by local metal workers, locl art hang on the walls – even most of the Backroads-branded gear in the retail area is designed and created in the region.

Their beer is also available in Nelson’s restaurants and pubs, and Government and private liquor stores throughout the Kootenay Rockies and the Okanagan.
