Stake Your Claim!

Barkerville Brewing Co. is hiring a Brewer.

Located in Quesnel BC, the commercial centre of the Cariboo Goldfields, we were one of the first craft breweries to stake our claim to great beer in the heart of BC!

We love our community and strive to be a great citizen of Quesnel.

If you love all four seasons, Quesnel has something for you.  We are located at the forks of the mighty Fraser River and the mountain fed, gold-bearing Quesnel River.

Quesnel is a paradise for the outdoor enthusiast! We can boast fantastic fishing, boating, skiing, sledding and some fabulous new mountain bike trails.

Our community is big enough to never have to leave, and small enough to make some real connections.

We have a wonderful farmer’s market right across the street from the brewery, and a thriving downtown… and of course we are located an hour from BC’s best known heritage destination, and the largest historic site in western North America, our namesake – Historic Barkerville!


We are an award winning 15bbl brewery.  Since opening in 2014 we have built our reputation on quality and consistency, while pushing the envelope and trying new things with an ever-growing array of styles.
