SASKATOON, SK – Brecknock Brewing, a new contract-brewing operation specialising in organic beers, will be officially releasing their first two beers – Brecknock Pale Ale and Brecknock Pilsner – at SLGA stores next month.
Currently using the Paddock Wood Brewery as a brewing facility, Brecknock was founded by Jason Dearborn, a former Member of the Legislative Assembly of Saskatchewan. CEO Mark Simpson is a former Molson brewmaster, and several other partners are also involved in various aspects of the business.
The brewery takes its name from Brecknock Farm, a farm in southwest Saskatchewan where organic barley is being grown for the beers. The company is also commited to using bio-fuel for all of its fuel needs, including farm equipment, and has partnered with Canadian Green Fuels to be their supplier.
