Sunshine Coast Ale Trail

The Sunshine Coast is the proud home to multiple award-winning craft breweries, Townsite Brewing in Powell River, Gibsons Tapworks and Persephone Brewing in Gibsons. These breweries have well-appointed tasting rooms that welcome visitors to experience their own distinct showcases of British Columbia’s dynamic craft beer culture, from Townsite’s re-purposed Federal building within a recognized Canadian Heritage District, to Persephone’s “beer farm” surrounded by towering hop vines and coastal Douglas fir forest.

Persephone Brewing Company

City: Gibsons
Persephone Brewing Co. (pronounced per-SEF-uh-nee) is dedicated to quality of life, quality beer and quality of the ingredients that go into the production of craft-brewed beer. 

Situated on the Sunshine Coast, in Gibsons, BC, home of the Beachcombers TV Series, our farm grows hops and a variety of food crops such as pumpkins, garlic, apples, raspberries, honey and more. 

The name Persephone was chosen to pay homage to the log salver boat in the Beachcombers, as a symbol of the values and lifestyle upheld on the Sunshine Coast. As well, the Greek myth of Persephone (daughter of Dimeter and Zeus), goddess of spring vegetation, works neatly with our situation on a farm and our ability to grow farm fresh beer.
