The Sunshine Coast’s burgeoning craft beer culture is an experience unto its own.

Follow the Sunshine Coast Ale Trail from Townsite Brewing’s re-purposed Federal building within a recognized Canadian Heritage District, to Persephone Brewing’s “beer farm” surrounded by towering hop vines and coastal Douglas fir forest. And to top it off, these microbreweries know how to throw a great party. The Sunshine Coast Craft Beer Festival and the Powell River Craft Beer Festival mark the calendar in early spring and late fall, and the “Tough Kegger” adventure race is a summer classic you won’t want to miss. Newly opened, The 101 Brewhouse + Distillery is Gibsons’ first craft distillery featuring house Gin and Vodka cocktails. With both a restaurant and lounge, this local hub offers great craft beers, spirits and food. And do you know what makes an excellent pairing? Beer and trivia! Gibsons Tapworks embraces the Coastal lifestyle and serves up quality craft beer, paired with fun trivia nights every Monday – be sure to show up early to guarantee a table!
