Heritage Tour Info

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.
