The Sunshine Coast is the proud home to multiple award-winning craft breweries: Townsite Brewing in Powell River, Gibsons Tapworks and Persephone Brewing in Gibsons. These breweries have well-appointed tasting rooms that welcome visitors to experience their own distinct showcases of British Columbia’s dynamic craft beer culture, from Townsite’s re-purposed Federal building within a recognized Canadian Heritage District, to Persephone’s “beer farm” surrounded by towering hop vines and coastal Douglas fir forest.
