Brewing beers and building communities – it can be done!
From bringing together his fellow UAlberta alumni to growing partnerships between Alberta’s brewing and farming industries, Brett Ireland (‘04 BSc, MechEng) is using his craft beer business to build communities.
Ireland (centre) and his Bearhill Brewing co-founders and best friends, Socrates Korogonas (right) and Alex Derksen (left), came together in 2005 to turn their love of beer and the community they were raised in, into a business. Jasper Brewing Co. was born and now nearly 15 years later, Bearhill Brewing consists of four brewpubs across Alberta. These include Jasper Brewing Co. in Jasper (Canada’s first brewpub inside a national park), Banff Ave Brewing Co. in Banff, Calgary’s Last Best Brewing & Distilling and now, Campio Brewing Co. in Edmonton, opening this October!
Ireland’s entrepreneurial spirit flows into the many partnerships he’s forged while growing his business. He works with local farmers to supply the malt for his beer and opens his doors to UAlberta grads to share his experiences in the craft beer industry – and to offer them a great beer!
