The Fort Garry Brewing Company Ltd brews beer in Winnipeg, Canada. The company was bought by the Hoeschen family in 1930, and operated by them until it was sold to Molson in 1960. In 1994, Richard D. Hoeschen resurrected the company.

The company was publicly traded on the Winnipeg Stock Exchange starting in January 1999, as CDNX:FGA.V.

Fort Garry Brewing produced two initial brands, Fort Garry Pale Ale and Dark Ale, from a 280 m2 plant with a capacity of 400,000 litres. In June 1999, the company moved to a new 2,300 m2 plant with ten times the capacity, and in September revived a brand from the 1930s, Frontier Pilsener.

On September 16, 2002, Richard D. Hoeschen died of Hodgkin's disease.

Starting in 2005, Fort Garry Beer is sold in Manitoba and Alberta.
