NWT Brewing

NWT Brewing Co.



Nestled between the wonder of the aurora borealis and the rugged nature of the northern frontier, this little brewing outpost is one of a kind.

Located in the spirited town of Yellowknife, Northwest Territories they are the northernmost brewpub in Canada.

Owned and operated by Fletcher & Miranda Stevens, The NWT Brewing Company opened its doors in November of 2015 along with their brewpub The Woodyard Brewhouse & Eatery located under the same roof in the historic Old Town.

Within the first year of operation, their crowd-pleasing beer, Kicksled Cream Ale, won a bronze medal at the Canadian Brewing awards landing the NWT on the Canadian beer map. The Woodyard Brewhouse & Eatery has not only become a pillar in the Yellowknife community but was named one of the top 50 bars in Canada in 2018.

In 2022 following a long pandemic, the team successfully expanded the brewery operations into a new larger brewing facility down the road from the Brewpub with the hopes of tapping into new markets.  Stay tuned!
