Nelson BC has a fairly new brewery in Backroads Brewing. The brewery is located on the main drive and a great spot to stop on a walk through town.
The tasting room has a great feel with lots of wood finishings and shared tables. The bar is inviting and has some bar stools on one side. They have lots of growlers and some good swag for sale also. The brewmaster Mike Kelly was originally from Nelson Brewing Company and has a ton of experience in brewing and it shows with their beers.
The brew house in the back is an 8HL brewhouse. They have 1-16HL unitank and 3-8HL unitanks with a total capacity of 40HL. A nice touch for this brewery is that they have 8-8HL serving and conditioning tanks in their cooler. these tanks are hooked right up to the taps in the taproom.
If you find yourself in Nelson I really recommend you check out this brewery. They are making tasty beer and it does not make it far outside of the brewery at this point!
