About Us


Who we are?

Beverage Protect is powered by Benson Kearley IFG which was founded in 1969. Joshua Kearley who joined his family brokerage 8 years ago, is the founder and program specialist for Beverage Protect.

Beverage Protect was was created to service the rapidly growing beverage manufacturing industries with a risk management oriented insurance program to address the changing weather and market conditions in Canada.

Josh was selected as 2017 Insurance Business Magazine Young Gun Broker of the year. Josh and his team of industry experts now focus on working with industry associations and business owners to insure the coverage, services, and programs being offered to clients of Beverage Protect are always relevant and up to date.

What we provide?

A risk management approach to insurance. Reaching a understanding with our clients that by making them a better risk to insure, it will ultimately protect their reputation and help enhance their bottom line. It takes years to build up a great reputation, and only a few moment to ruin one.

Why our clients choose to do business with us?


In 2015 we connected with Josh Kearley of Beverage Protect powered by BKIFG while we were in the process of building our brewery. 

Not only did Josh and his team provide us with education on our exposures, enhancement of coverage, and more importantly competitive premiums, we also received, and continue to receive, exceptional service and an ongoing risk management partner.

Beverage Protect’s Brewery Program helped us understand our risk and what we are actually paying insurance premiums to protect.

I would highly recommend any brewery engage Josh Kearley from Beverage Protect and give him the opportunity to show you why he and his team has, and continues to earn our business.
