The Guy Behind it All

Mike Ansley – Founder, Managing Director, Craft Enthusiast

You may have seen him before. If you’ve been watching the Craft Beverage industry over the years, you’ve probably met him, read his articles, or followed him on Instagram. He’s been cheering the team for some time now.

Since 2014, Mike has been a faithful supporter, writer, promoter, collaborator, and overall fanatic of the BC Craft Industry. Inspired by the struggle and pandemic of 2020, Mike didn’t sit idle as he saw beverage producers working overtime to get their product to the market. He picked up the phone and asked how he could help.  The answer was a resounding “Help us get our product into cans!!!” Mike answered the call, put his head down, and got to work.

Fuelled by his passion for supporting the local Craft Beverage industry, and applying his career experience as a Project Manager, he dusted off his business degree and created a plan. Eight months later, Local Canning Ltd. is on the road May 2021.
