The funds will help with ongoing trail and hut improvements, and education programs in Fernie. In the past year the club refurbished the Tunnel Creek Hut, helped develop the Montane Hut and Montane Trail System, and awarded four avalanche bursaries to local individuals pursuing a career in avalanche safety.

Cheers to Charity

FBC is one of BC’s leading small craft-breweries and are as about as passionate and thirsty for making great beer as one can get. They are also passionate and supportive of their hometown in a big way!

Since December 2013, FBC has been running their “Cheers to Charity” Program. 100% of tasting money ($5 for a sample paddle of four beers) goes to a variety of worthy Fernie charities, organizations or clubs. Paddles are available during store opening hours. (Winter Hours: Mon – Thurs 10AM-6PM, Fri & Sat 10AM-8PM, Sunday Closed.) So visit the brewery for a sample paddle and raise a glass to a good cause.

With around six “Cheers to Charity” recipients a year, the “Cheers to Charity” Program donations add up. since December 2013 FBC has donated over $25,000. Past recipients have included the Fernie Historical Society, Family Housing Society, Fernie BMX Club, the Elk Valley Hospice and Fernie Nordic Society.

When picking up your next 6-pack, remember who employees 30 plus locals and donates to Fernie’s best causes!
