Persephone Brewing Company in Gibsons

Persephone Brewing Company

Brewery

About

BC's Sunshine Coast, a short ferry ride from West Vancouver, promises a bounty of farms, producers, and libations. Case in point? In Gibsons, Persephone Brewing Company’s signature big red barn is an ideal spot to sip award-winning craft beer made from hops grown on-site.

Persephone takes a “farmhouse” approach to their brewing operations by integrating farming, regenerative agriculture, and delicious beer. They don’t just grow hops and barley here, though; if you pop by, you’ll also see apple orchards, veggie gardens, greenhouses, and a flock of laying hens. 

Visit their tasting room and try their Pollinator Pilsner—the organic hops used in this brew promise hints of green tea and juicy pear, while the addition of BC honey adds a subtle floral note. Or spend an afternoon at a picnic table in the field with a flight of beers paired with pizza, made in Persephone’s outdoor wood-fire oven. 

In 2017, Persephone became the first brewery in BC to be certified as a B-Corporation.

About British Columbia

In Canada’s westernmost province, fresh local bounty, talented chefs, and a melting pot of cultures combine to make British Columbia a top culinary destination. It’s a rich tapestry supported by farmers, growers, and producers whose ingredients shape menus in communities along the Pacific Ocean, in the Rocky Mountains, and everywhere in between.

Here, Indigenous cultures who have been nurturing the land for millennia showcase traditional offerings with a modern twist. Other multicultural influences inspire chefs and artisan food producers to blend local ingredients with global flavours. Dishes also vary widely, depending on place, creating distinctive regional dining scenes—from wild salmon sushi in Tofino to down-home guest ranch cooking in the Cariboo to delicate dim sum in Richmond. 

Victoria, the province’s capital, boasts more restaurants per capita than almost anywhere else in Canada, while Vancouver, BC’s most populous city, was recently recognized with several MICHELIN Stars, further elevating the city’s reputation as an international dining destination. Wine touring, spirits, and local beer are hugely popular here, too, in the Fraser Valley near Vancouver, on Vancouver Island, and especially along the Okanagan Valley lakeside, where seasonal pours provide the perfect finish to a day of hiking, biking, and swimming.
