Prince George, B.C. – Beer lovers can get a sneak peek of CrossRoads Brewing this weekend.

Located on George Street in the old Tony Roma’s building, it will give people the chance to see the progress they’ve made so far.

The open houses coincide with AleFest and will run Friday from 4-8 p.m. and again Saturday from 2-8 p.m.

“People can come down and see what we’ve done in terms of the manufacturing and the build and construction,” says co-owner Bjorn Butow. “They can also meet Patrick Moore, our head brewer, and Wayne Kitchen, our head chef.”

Originally the goal was to open to the public by Christmas but he says some unforeseen issues have delayed things until late February, early March.

“You know things take a little bit more time, a little bit more money than you think to get to the finish line, but we’re almost there.”

So, what can patrons expect to see once work in the 8,000-square foot space is complete?

“When you walk in you’ll see it’s a very open space with huge windows looking into the manufacturing area so you can observe and watch Patrick and his team making beer,” says Butow.

“We have three large garage doors and in the summer time we’re going to open them up onto our patio. That’s going to be a great space for people to enjoy. And then we’ve got an open concept kitchen where Wayne will be cooking and people can sit and watch the food being made. It’s an immersive space.”


I hope all goes well! What I am afraid of is in the summer when they open the garage doors. They are going to have to increase the foot patrols to keep the bums away from this area. Be like flies to honey. I would like to think zero tolerance, as they have to do this to make the city core vibrant and to bring people down there. No pussy footing around! One guy’s opinion, mine.

    If we cant get an increase in foot patrols downtown for the business’s that are there now, what makes you think that they would increase patrols for this business.??

    You must be kidding…or delusional. “Bums” will not be frequenting this business…

      Gimme a break, you new in town? They will be hanging around the outside of it and thereabouts. Delusional?? No! Reality? Yes! Hope I am wrong, but I know a lot of ‘clentale’ of the shady type downtown. Still pretty good to see regardless.

I hope them success..downtown is slowing coming back to life..thanks to all the businesses opening up downtown. It’s amazing the change already… after 30 yrs of downtown revitalization wasted spending by our mayors and council it took a few businesses to bring it back…excellent work
