The BC Ale Trail

September 13th, 2016

That’s right beer lover’s, come one come all!

Launching this October 2016, the BC Ale Trail will be up and running, providing beer enthusiasts with a wonderful online roadmap to some of British Columbia’s (BC) outstanding craft breweries. As well, local attractions within the differing craft brewery communities will be featured in the online ale trail map, giving you access to the ultimate road trip getaway.

In partnership with several tourism destination marketing organizations throughout the province, the BC Craft Brewers Guild, and beer writer Joe Wiebe, the BC Ale Trail was designed as a distinctive guide connecting people to British Columbia’s diverse and vibrant craft beer community. The BC Ale Trail will take you on an exciting, hop-filled journey across various regions in British Columbia, including the Sunshine Coast, Victoria, Whistler, Nanaimo, Comox Valley, Port Moody, and the entire Kootenay Rockies region. Our very own Longwood Brewery and White Sails Brewing will be featured on Nanaimo’s Ale Trail!

The BC Ale Trail is more than just sipping on a few brews (although that is a fairly important element!). It’s about discovering new breweries, meeting with the brewers, listening to their stories, and tasting the many amazing brew creations. More than anything, the BC Ale Trail captures the essence of British Columbia’s craft beer movement: a community oriented spirit and a commitment to pushing the industry forward with innovative, passionate brews.

This October the official kick-off for the BC Ale Trail coincides with BC Craft Beer Month. While you’re on the BC Ale Trail, don’t forget to check out the amazing activities and attractions within the community you’re visiting. Even though summer is coming to a close, you can start planning your next road trip sooner than you thought. The BC Ale Trail offers a phenomenal opportunity to connect with local breweries, businesses, and communities throughout beautiful British Columbia.

The BC Ale Trail’s home page says it best, “Follow curated Ale Trails to explore breweries and

local attractions, enjoying BC’s super, natural wilderness, activities, and urban experiences.”
