Host Jennifer Hawks takes My Yukon Life listeners on Victoria Day to Yukon Brewing in Whitehorse. How else could we celebrate Queen Victoria’s birthday other than to hoist a few and take our listeners on a VIP tour of the brewery?
Their brew Yukon Red has been named Canada’s Top Amber four years in a row. In September 2009 Yukon Red, the brewery’s Amber Ale was awarded the 2009 Canadian Beer of the Year at the Canadian Brewing Awards, finishing with gold in the Amber Ale category.
Yukon Brewing also now distills and barrels single malt whiskey. The whiskey and other spirit products are sold under Yukon Brewing’s sister company Yukon Spirits.
