Craft Beer is everywhere in BC and Whistler is no different. Whistler Brewing is located in the Function Junction neighborhood of Whistler. There was a time when the brewery was Alberta owned by a bigger brewery but it has been locally purchased and the entire operation is now located back in Whistler. The brewery is located in a commercial district with lots of warehouses (I didn’t realize this area existed).
When you arrive at the brewery you are welcomed by a nice taproom with some hot food options, merchandise area and a cold beer store. You can sit down and have a glass or two of beer or try samples of their beer. You can even fill a growler to go.
For around $15 you can do a tour of the brewery which includes 4 samples of their beer. Three samples are predetermined and the last one your choose after the tour back in the tasting room. It is a very informative tour especially for people that do not know the brewing process and industry as well as I do. I recommend taking the tour next time you are in Whistler if you want to learn more about beer. I was surprised and happy to hear that all beer production was moved back to Whistler and also surprised at how small the brewery was.
I would like to thank the Staff at Whistler Brewing for all the hospitality. The brewery is well run and is making some tasty beer and is well worth a trip if you happen to be heading to Whistler be it for a weekend, hiking or skiing.
