Take two lads in the Yukon, stick them on a canoe trip, and lo and behold, in 1997 a brewery was born. Now, making beer is a joyous thing, but in 2009 these two blokes decided to buy a still, apply their brewing knowhow and make authentically crafted spirits. Whisky was the name of the game in the beginning but as it turns out, making whisky involves a lot of waiting around. While waiting for whisky to mature in barrels, Yukon Brewing got busy making other fine spirits. Yukon Brewing has produced a number of different spirits to include Gin, Liqueurs, Brandy and more.
It’s been more than two decades since that canoe trip, and Yukon Brewing and sister whisky company Two Brewers continue to service the north with quality beer & spirits while keeping jobs and money in the territory. Actively involved in the local community, Yukon Brewing supports countless Yukon events and causes each year.
