BREWERY WALKING TOURS


Port Moody:

With the addition of the Parkside Brewery, Port Moody can now boast no less than four Craft Breweries along it’s “Brewers Row”. This walking tour starts off by building up a thirst along the shoreline trail. Starting from Rocky Point, follow the trail along the water’s edge over boardwalks and steps all the way to Old Orchard Park. Turn around here, following either the same way back or the paved cycle way. After returning to Rocky Point walk up to Murray Street where you will see the first two breweries (Yellow Dog and Twin Sails) on the other side of the road. After some sampling at these two, head a little further west along Murray Street for Parkside and Moody Ales. 

 

North Vancouver:

The district adjacent to the Seabus Terminal has a cluster of four craft breweries that can be combined together into a pleasant walking tour. Start off at Lonsdale Quay Market, the site of the Green Leaf Brewing Co. From there follow Esplanade Avenue west to Semisch Ave where you will find Sailor Hagar’s Brew Pub. From Hagar’s follow Esplanade to 3rd Street West connecting to Bewicke Avenue via 2nd Street West. Take Copping Street to reach Black Kettle Brewing. Heading South from Black Kettle take Gostick Place to join the “Spirit Trail” that follows the shoreline. Follow this all the way to the end and then head north on Mackay Road, crossing the creek using the walkway at the bend in the road. The final brewery (Hearthstone) will be on your left just before reaching Marine Drive.


Main Street:

The district south of False Creek around Main Street has eight craft breweries concentrated into an area less than one square kilometer. With some creative route planning these can all be combined into a single walking tour. A suggested itinerary to capture them all is: Big Rock -> 33 Acres -> Main Street -> Brassneck -> Red Truck -> R&B -> Faculty -> Steel Toad. This would be a challenge, but for those with still some energy left the tour can be capped off with a visit to the Craft Beer Market in the Salt Building near the Olympic Village.
