Coquitlam could in the next year or so be home to a brewery of its own if Council can their butt in gear.

Here is what I know for sure:

Prototype Brewing hope to be the first Brewery to open in Coquitlam.

They are ready to sign a lease on a location if/when council allows for breweries in Coquitlam.

They will not be located in the United Boulavard region like I hypothesized but instead will be located in the barnet highway area (more on that in a moment).

They feel they are at least 6-10 months away, I would argue based on experience, they are closer to 12-18 months away from serving beer.

What I can speculate on:

Well with some super googling I can show you their website in progress, and a potential site that is within their supposed Barnet Highway location.

Knowing the area fairly well i can guess this is the old Sushi Mori site (RIP sushi) which would put the potential location right here:

Falcon and Barnet Highway

This means Coquitlam’s Brewery would be within walking distance of #BrewersRow / #BREWardInlet

A brisk 3o minute walk

But what about those who want to take transit? Well there is another option fall 2017 when Port Moody’s Breweries could be linked to Coquitlam’s brewery by Skytrain!

Only a 9 minute walk from IOCO station!

So there it is the scoop on Coqutilam’s potential first brewery ever.

        All I had was their twitter handle. You got the scoop for sure. I look forward to them building so I can poke around.

        Keep up the good work.
