When the customer loves the finely crafted beer you brew so much that there’s a demand for bigger can sizes, you’re doing something right. The Black Bridge Brewery in Swift Current, Saskatchewan brews beer – now in 473 millilitre proper pint cans – that’s born in wide open spaces. The crisp, clean and dry Wheat Burst, the rustic, woody and balanced Rye Ale, and the black, roasted and creamy Milk Stout are testaments to the icon which inspired the brewery’s name. In Canada’s west where grain is gold and milk is money, bridges represent commerce and community. “The name Black Bridge Brewery,” it reads at BlackBridgeBrewery.ca , “comes from the name of a small iron bridge a few kilometers south of Swift Current, in the rolling south west Saskatchewan prairies. The bridge is well-known among residents of Swift Current and has long been the subject of myths, stories of hauntings, afternoons spent fishing in the Swift Current creek, which flows beneath, and countless wedding and family photo shoots.” In only five years, Black Bridge Brewery has grown from a dream shared by husband and wife co-founders and owners, Clayton and Kari Stenson, into a household name in Saskatchewan and Manitoba.
