Banff Ave. Brewing Company was founded in 2010, five years after the opening of its sister brewpub Jasper Brewing Co. In a similar spirit as Jasper, the brewpub has developed into a beer culture hotbed for locals and tourists alike. Drawing strength from the dynamic Banff community and inspiration from the Rocky Mountains and wildlife, Banff Ave Brewing Co. is a central hub not to be missed in the National Parks.
Bearhill Brewing was founded by three best friends – Brett Ireland, Alexander Derksen, and Socrates Korogonas – who were born and raised in Jasper. Growing up in the food and beverage industry in their mountain town, they felt there was a large demand for truly local dining and drinking experiences. Combine this insight with their love of craft beer and the boys decided to open a brewpub. From the beginning, the intention was to create a beer culture inspired by community; one of locally produced craft beer that belongs to the community who drinks it. This has become the foundation of everything Bearhill does.
