This autumn, explore British Columbia’s raw wilderness and bounty of craft beer with the BC Ale Trail — the definitive online guide to BC’s dynamic craft beer community. Explore stouts and snow-capped peaks, brown ales and beaches, or bikes and hikes that lead to a tasting room using curated Ale Trails connecting towns, breweries and nearby attractions, yielding unforgettable experiences for craft beer enthusiasts touring the province.
With support from seven of BC’s Destination Marketing Organizations (DMOs), the self-guided tours will highlight local brewery destinations and suggested sightseeing in each of the seven participating communities — Comox Valley, Kootenay Rockies, Nanaimo, Port Moody, Sunshine Coast, Victoria and Whistler.
Launching in October to coincide with BC Craft Beer Month, the BC Ale Trail will come to life with help from Joe Wiebe, author of the BC bestselling book Craft Beer Revolution: The Insider’s Guide to BC Breweries and co-founder of Victoria Beer Week, as well as several other BC craft beer champions who have contributed their expertise of the industry to produce an authentic and robust BC Ale Trail experience.
The BC Ale Trail invites beer enthusiasts to Arrive Thirsty, Leave Inspired. Join the wild at heart and explore all that British Columbia’s craft beer wilderness has to offer.
While you wait for this to launch here is my complete list of craft breweries in the Province.
