Great news for craft beer lovers in Northern BC, as CrossRoads Brewing opened its door in Prince George today.
CrossRoads is the city’s very first craft brewery and was founded by Daryl Leiski and Bjorn Butow. Leiski has been an avid homebrewer for about 20 years and when he met Butow, who was helping to organize the inaugural Kiwanis Alefest, the two became fast friends and soon decided to start a craft brewery together. They then recruited Patrick Moore as their head brewer, who used to work at Howe Sound Brewing and R&B Brewing.
The brewery is located downtown on George Street in the former home of Niner’s Diner and Tony Roma’s.
At opening, the brewery is offering eight different beers on tap:
- Pidherny Pale Ale—5% ABV; 38 IBU
- Alternative Facts Brown Ale —5% ABV; 19 IBU
- George St. Brown Ale—5% ABV; 19 IBU
- Iron Bridge Oatmeal Stout—5% ABV; 19 IBU
- Clearcut Lager—5% ABV; 20 IBU
- Hail Mary IPA—6% ABV; 60 IBU
They also have four rotating guest taps and a full food menu. They are open seven days a week from 11:30-23:00.
