ABOUT US: Townsite Brewing is an award-winning craft brewery at the top of the Sunshine Coast of BC. Our core values are:

1. Brew world-class beers
2. Promote beer culture and the responsible enjoyment of beer
3. Use sustainable business practices
4. Promote local economy and regional self-reliance
5. Support environmental stewardship and social responsibility
6. Kindle social, environmental and cultural change

Last April, we unleashed the floodgates for craft beer in Powell River with an all-star lineup of 4 regulars and 7 seasonals created by BC's only Belgian brewmaster, Cedric Dauchot. We've just added more fermentation space to gird our loins for the summer to come, and Cedric needs an assistant brewer to help keep them fully deployed because he wants to expand the program with some barrel-aging, cask conditioning and new recipes.

ABOUT POWELL RIVER: Powell River is a town of about 13,000 people (20,000 in the entire regional district) at the top of BCs Sunshine Coast. The major employer has downsized considerably from its heyday as the largest newsprint mill in the world; however, the population has not decreased. This is in large part because of the excellent quality of life and low cost of living and more recently, incredible craft beer! Residents are also passionate about food security, local food and regional sustainability, and leisure - there are 5 beaches within 5 minutes of the brewery, hundreds of kilometres of hiking & biking trails, fishing, rock climbing, scuba diving and more!

But enough about us!
