Maple Ridge is starting to join the craft beer revolution with their second brewery opening up this past weekend. Ridge Brewing Company is located really close to the first brewery in Maple Ridge only being one block away.
Walking in the door you find a tasting room. The tasting room has very nice wood accents with a nice eclectic style mixing in metal cladding and steel drums (Ladies they have purse hooks on the tables!). Swag is already in full force with an array of t-shirts already available as well as hats, growlers with at least 4 different sayings on them and some growler carrying cases. The brewery has launched with three beers including a Witbier (Gringa Loca), IPA (Green Eyes White) and Brown Ale (Cafe Morena). They also have some kind of Irish ale in the works and a Pilsner on the horizon.
It does not take much to find the brew house as it is fully visible from the tasting room. The brew house is 10HL and they currently have 3-20HL tanks but as you can see there is some room to expand out and up so the beer should keep flowing as demand builds.
Ridge Brewing Company is an exciting addition to the Fraser Valley brewing scene and both Carlos the owner and the brewmaster are very friendly people. Make sure you head out to the brewery soon to try their beer especially if you live in Maple Ridge!
