Province Brands of Canada
Province Brands of Canada is a beverage technology & branded products company. Our patent-pending technology creates a better class of beer.
For the first time ever, beer can be brewed from non-starch plant material – basically any kind of wood, shrub or grass, including plant waste (for example from a pulp mill), and including most types of food waste (for example “spent grains” left over after brewing the old way). Beers made with our technology are lower calorie, lower carb, and gluten free.
They contain beneficial compounds, including powerful prebiotics, not found in any other beverage. Brewers can experiment with new flavours, make beers from locally sourced materials, save up to 20% on their brewing costs, and even make a second batch of beer from their spent grains – all the while, reducing their carbon emissions & waste disposal costs.
Cannabis beverage companies can use the technology to make authentic non-alcoholic fermented beverages brewed directly from the industry’s primary waste stream (stalks, stems & roots) – beverages which stand out amongst competitors’ which need to be “infused” to intoxicate. Functional beverage companies can make great tasting gluten-free fermented beverages with beneficial compounds not found elsewhere.
This is a proven technology that can be put into practice at minimal expense. And it’s going to change the brewing industry forever..
