Opened March 23rd, 2017, Backroads Brewing Co. is the 3rd brewery in the counter-culture capital of the Kootenays – Nelson.  We are located right in the heart of downtown, on the always vibrant and eclectic Baker Street.  We brew on a smaller 8hl brewing system , with plenty of fermenters and brite tanks, to keep a rotating list of 8 beers on tap.  Backroads also has a small bottling operation, keeping liquor store shelves filled around the Kootenays and into the Okanagan.

    IBU: 19

    A silky smooth, refreshing, Belgian style farmhouse ale suitable for any time of year. The unique strain of yeast adds spicy, peppery, fruity, and citrus notes to this ale. Pours a rich orange hue topped by a thick white head.

    El Dorado
    Golden Ale
    ABV: 5.3 %
    IBU: 13

    A fruity, thirst-quenching Golden Ale. The clean malt backbone and delicate bitterness are complemented by pear, watermelon and mango notes from a generous addition of El Dorado hops late in the brewing process.

    Freshly Squeezed
    Juicy IPA
    ABV: 6.8 %
    IBU: 60

    Citrus fruit zest and fresh juice give this IPA a distinctly fruity, citrus base upon which to throw an astonishingly absurd amount of hops. Assertive whirlpool and dry hop additions of Simcoe and Mosaic hops impart distinct mango, stone fruit, citrus and pine notes.
