Cameron and Heather were approached by a clever entrepreneur that saw the opportunity for craft beer growth in Saskatchewan, to run his brewery for him. They were intrigued by the thought of building his brewery, but after much discussion, they decided they wanted to build a brewery that would reflect more of themselves. They embarked on a research road trip to the “beer capitol,” Denver, Colorado, for some inspiration. There, they developed the vision of Prairie Sun Brewery.
After 19 months their vision became a reality as they took their passion and hard work, and brewed their first batch of beer on a 10-barrel system. Starting a business is no easy task…starting a craft brewery is even tougher. Luckily, they were able to find most of the equipment needed to make it happen from Hogs Head Brewery in St. Albert, Alberta.
In May 2013, Heather and Cameron found the perfect home at the former “Saskatoon Bakery” and they moved in! By June 2015, Prairie Sun had grown to 12 employees and could be found in many restaurants around Saskatoon. Heather and Cameron look forward to sharing their tasty beer with everyone in this community.
