The Nelson Brewing Company is a brewery located in Nelson, British Columbia, not to be confused with The Nelson Brewing Company in Chatham, Kent, England. The original Nelson Brewing and Ice Company was founded in 1897 by Robert Reisterer. The brewery fell on hard times in the 1960s, but in 1992 a group of local businessmen reopenned the brewery in its original historical building. While most beer from the Nelson Brewing Company is consumed in the Kootenays, it is available across British Columbia.
The brewery currently brews seven beers: Old Brewery Ale is a classic English pale ale; Nelson After Dark is an English Dark Mild; Blackheart Stout is a marriage of an Irish dry stout and an Oatmeal stout; Liplock Summer Wheat Ale is an unfiltered pale hefeweizen style beer brewed only in summer; Faceplant Winter Ale is only brewed during the winter; Paddywhack IPA is an Indian pale ale; Wild Honey Ale is brewed with organic honey from the Creston Valley.
