So why is the success of Crooked Feeder Brewing great for the area?
Newfoundland and Labrador—like the rest of Atlantic Canada–is a culturally diverse province with a growing appetite for finer food and beverages. With the rise of craft beer appreciation in Newfoundland and Labrador, the success of new beer opportunities (specifically Port Rexton Brewing and the Western Newfoundland Brewing Company) proves that our province is eager to try new and better beer. The craft beer culture is improving here, but compared to many other provinces, Newfoundland and Labrador is still lagging behind in the number of locally crafted beers. There is currently an explosion in microbreweries in Newfoundland, and Crooked Feeder Brewing will be integral to establishing Western Newfoundland as a craft beer destination. Additionally, Cormack is a community in need of new and wonderful things to help create employment and tourist opportunities. The brewery and our future taproom will be will be two new opportunities that can breathe life into not only the tourist industry, but the community and region. We have our sights set high and we see no upper limit to the things we can achieve in Western Newfoundland.
