Microbrewery in the works for Grande Prairie

If everything goes to plan, Grande Prairie could have its very own microbrewery by next spring.

The Grande Prairie Brewing Company has applied to have the facility, a first for the Swan City, allowed in the Land Use Bylaw.

Representative Jason Petrone says they’ve been working on the idea for a few years now, and want to capitalize on the growing trend.

“It’s something that’s huge in British Columbia and starting to make its way through Alberta. I know we’ve definitely got the economy in Grande Prairie that people could get on board and support this and make it successful for Grande Prairie and Grande Prairie Brewing Co.”

Petrone says they’re interested in using local products, and already have equipment being manufactured.

Tours of the facility and sample room could also be a big draw for tourists, drawing them in from places like the Philip J. Currie Dinosaur Museum, but it will need a visible and accessible location.

A public hearing on allowing microbreweries and breweries will be held December 15th.
