Spotlight on Business recently sat down with Matthew Berard, one of the co-owners of Banded Peak Brewing, to learn more about how he and a couple of childhood buddies, Colin McLean and Alex Horner, had been having fun brewing at home for a few years. After sharing their creations with friends and getting the thumbs up on their skills starting a craft brewery and entering into the Alberta market just seemed like a natural progression for this beer trio who love the outdoors as much as they love beer.

It is not too often that a business that opened its doors in 2016 can trace it roots back to the early 1900’s, but that is the case with Medicine Hat Brewing Company. Spotlight on

Business had the opportunity to catch up with Warren Vancuren, Owner, and Kaiden Vancuren, General Manager of Manufacturing & Distribution, for the brewery and learn about their family’s journey to bring back a piece of Medicine Hat’s history. But as Warren and Kaiden will tell us a legacy isn’t the easiest thing to live up to, but then again Medicine Hat has never been about doing things the easy way, but the right way when it comes to making timeless craft beer.

Canning is a village in northeastern Kings County, Nova Scotia located at the crossroads of Route 221 and Route 358. It was once a shipping and rail hub for farmers in Kings County along with being a major ship designing and building centre. Today it is becoming more known for its fashion designs than its ship designs, all thanks to Pamela Matheson, designer and owner, of the Esmé Original Jacket. Spotlight on Business spoke with Pam from her studio in Canning where she has been building her product line since 2013 with a focus on quality, comfort and affordability.
