Mount Begbie Brewery seeking new location for expansion

Mount Begbie Brewery looking for new location for expanded facility after declining to purchase lands across from Revelstoke railway museum.

Mount Begbie Brewery is looking for a new location for an expanded facility after it declined to purchase the lands across from the railway museum.

“We are in pursuit of a new location,” confirmed Tracey Larson, who owns the brewery with her husband Bart. “Bart’s still looking and he has a few more options to review at this point.”

They intend to stay in Revelstoke, she added.

Mt. Begbie was planning to build a new brewery across from the Revelstoke Railway Museum but soil issues made building on that site cost prohibitive, said Tracey.

“I don’t mean anything bad environmentally with the soil, but building wise, for us to excavate the soil and refill for a building our size would have been fairly cost prohibitive,” said Larson.

As a result, the brewery did not purchase the property from the Big Bend Development Corporation, which owns the former trailer park across from the  museum.

“We’re back to square one looking,” said Larson.

As a result of the move, city council acceded to a Big Bend request to rescind the re-zoning amendments to the Farrell Road property. However, a Official Community Plan amendment changes the land use from urban residential to mixed use was adopted.

“The OCP designation proposed seems to be more appropriate use due to its adjacentsy to the railway museum and the railway itself,” said the city’s chief planner Dean Strachan.
