About Us 2017-05-10T13:26:38+00:00

Our passion for quality beer-making is as strong today as it was when our journey began. From the beginning of a home brewing project in the basement of founders Clayton and Kari Stenson – to twelve years later with the opening of Black Bridge Brewery in 2014 – our mission to create a better beer through artful attention to detail has always remained.

The name Black Bridge Brewery 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.

Like the beer which has become its namesake, the bridge serves as a humble but beloved icon for those in the area, and one whose spirit is reflected in our values as down-to-earth, strong, honest and proud to represent Saskatchewan brewing.
