Here’s a list of known or rumoured breweries opening at… some point? I guess? Some of these are absolutely concrete while others are nothing but whispers I overheard at the pub (and might even be alternate names for other breweries on this list). Dates–even dates straight from the brewers–are giddy, dreamy estimates which the LCLB would love to crush.
Updated with the latest intel from Dave. He has a handy, awesome map of all these buggers for BC and beyond here:
Here’s a key for the status:
Open: Now open; will be removed from this list shortly.
Imminent: Brewing is happening, renos are drawing to a close. Opening date should be announced soon.
Building: Leases are signed, floors are being poured. It’s all happening!
Financing: Money is being/has been gathered, location pending.
Confirmed: I (or people I trust) have actually talked to the folk involved (and they asked me for money).
Rumoured: A guy once said something about this, maybe.
