Fresh From The Kootenays
Established in 2013 Fisher Peak Brewing company was born out of the desire to develop our love of flavour even further. Designed with the Kootenay’s and our lifestyle in mind we wanted to craft local beers that we would be proud to shout about from the mountain tops! something more
Wanting to keep and expand on a reputation for high quality, fresh made food, Heidi teamed with Chef Rustin Cox, who guides a culinary team of 5 Red Seal chefs. Using locally sourced ingredients, Rustin (Rusty) and his talented team create original dishes that showcase the flavours of the region as well as new takes on traditional flares. Partnering with locals such as 3 crows farm, an urban farm just 3km down the road, who provides us with many of our fresh produce and greens throughout the year and Gwinners Butchers, who make our Soggy Otter salami using our Brown Ale, the kitchen is constantly inspired by Kootenay people and all we have available to us.
