ituated off the banks of Fraser River in Delta, B.C., Four Winds Brewery has been owned and operated by the Mills family since 2013. Inspired by unique West Coast and European styles, their beers are innovative while paying homage to old world techniques.

Patience and brewing go hand-in-hand. The time it takes from malt to ferment can take weeks, sometimes months, depending on the style, technique, and ingredients. Motivated by the limitless potential of beer as well as the great brewers who came before them, Four Winds aims to create bold craft beers with character, depth, and balance.
