Infinitea T-Bar and Boutique
501 1st Ave

Infinitea now has beer on tap! Having recently partnered with local Kootenay brewery Overtime Beer Works, Infinitea is currently offering Present IPA (Wild West IPA) and Split Wit (Wheat Beer) on tap. Their system allows for frequently rotating taps, so they are excited to showcase the variety of beers available from this up and coming brewery.

Having started less than two years ago, Overtime describes itself as an honest, modest, hardworking craft beer marketed towards the average mountain person. Infinitea hopes the addition of tap beer will work well with their extended 25 person patio which is the only west facing patio in the downtown so it receives sun until the sun goes down. Saturday’s are $5 pint days and Infinitea will be offering jug specials on both Live Music Fridays from 8 pm and BBQ and Beats 6-9pm Sundays throughout the Summer.

Mountain View Dental Centre
1191 7th Ave

The team at Mountain View Dental Centre would like to extend a warm welcome to their newest member, Johanna Hyde.

Joanne moved to Fernie in 2013 after taking part in a race one weekend. Instantly the pull of the town and the friendliness of the people took hold and she called it home. But although she graduated from Trinity College, Dublin with a dental degree it was not accredited in Canada and her love of dentistry led her to move to Winnipeg, Manitoba to graduate after two years with a Canadian Dental Degree. She moves back to Fernie to re-join the Mountain View dental team with a passion for dentistry and a love for the hills. She hopes that her two children follow in her Solomon footsteps and share her love of trail running and looks forward to meeting everyone in Fernie whether it’s in the office or on the trails.
