A group of Burnaby and New Westminster breweries are being featured in a special “Ale Trail” event that starts on Thursday, Oct. 28
Dubbed North of the Fraser Ale Trail, the four communities of New Westminster, Burnaby, Coquitlam and Port Coquitlam are aligned in many ways — not just by geography, but also by their bustling craft breweries.
“We’re really excited to bring these communities together on the BC Ale Trail,” said Monica Frost, BC Ale Trail Project Lead. “Creating the North of the Fraser Ale Trail was a natural next step and brings nine established breweries onboard in a new way. We hope beer lovers spend a day or a weekend exploring the breweries, restaurants and other activities these vibrant cities have to offer.”
The BC Ale Trail is part of Destination BC's Co-Op Marketing Program and the North of the Fraser Ale Trail brings together Tourism New Westminster, Tourism Burnaby, Tourism Coquitlam and City of Port Coquitlam to feature some of the province’s best known breweries, including the Belgian-themed Dageraad Brewing in Burnaby; New Westminster’s Steel & Oak Brewing; and Steamworks Brewery, an expanded production facility in Burnaby that grew out of the Steamworks Brewpub in downtown Vancouver.
Those traveling the North of the Fraser Ale Trail will be able to visit these 11 breweries in a curated itinerary:
- Another Beer Company (New Westminster)
- Steel & Oak (New Westminster)
- Dageraad Brewing (Burnaby)
- Steamworks William Street Brewery & Taproom (Burnaby)
- Studio Brewing (Burnaby)
- Mariner Brewing (Coquitlam)
- Boardwalk Brewing (Port Coquitlam)
- Northpaw Brewing Co. (Port Coquitlam)
- Patina Brewing (Port Coquitlam)
- Taylight Brewing (Port Coquitlam)
- Tinhouse Brewing (Port Coquitlam)
The North of the Fraser Ale Trail is just east of the Yeast Vancouver Ale Trail which comprises 14 different breweries, including R&B Brewing Co., which was recently voted winner of the 2021 BC Ale Trail Best Brewery Experience Award.
