About Howe Sound Brewing
Proudly brewing award-winning ales in Squamish for nearly 20 years, we owe much of our early success to John Mitchell. He co-pioneered North America's first modern craft brewery at Horseshoe Bay back in 1982. Known as the "grandfather of micro-brewing in Canada," Mitchell helped design Howe Sound Brewery in 1996 and worked as our very first brewer.
At Howe Sound Brewery, we strive to have zero effect on the environment. We reuse spent grains, yeast, water, bottles and caps to innovatively create secondary products. Our model of sustainability is promoted throughout the workplace as we encourage our employees to come up with new solutions to spark environmental change.
