Persephone Brewing Co. (pronounced per-SEF-uh-nee) is dedicated to quality of life, quality beer and quality of the ingredients that go into the production of craft-brewed beer.
Situated on the Sunshine Coast, in Gibsons, BC, home of the Beachcombers TV Series, our farm grows hops and a variety of food crops such as pumpkins, garlic, apples, raspberries, honey and more.
The name Persephone was chosen to pay homage to the log salver boat in the Beachcombers, as a symbol of the values and lifestyle upheld on the Sunshine Coast. As well, the Greek myth of Persephone (daughter of Dimeter and Zeus), goddess of spring vegetation, works neatly with our situation on a farm and our ability to grow farm fresh beer.
