We are all visitors on the traditional territories of the Tla’amin, Klahoose, shíshálh, and Skwxwú7mesh nations. Anytime you are exploring the Sunshine Coast, please remember to be safe, responsible, and respectful. Please explore your community safely and responsibly

The Sunshine Coast is the proud home to award-winning craft breweries and cideries: Townsite Brewing in Powell River, Batch 44 Brewery & Kitchen and The Bricker Cider Company in Sechelt, and Tapworks Brewing Company, The 101 Brewhouse + Distillery, Persephone Brewing, Banditry Cider, and Sunday Cider in Gibsons. These breweries and cideries have well-appointed tasting rooms that welcome visitors to experience the distinct flavours and craft beer culture of the Sunshine Coast. Visit Townsite’s re-purposed federal building that sits in a recognized Canadian Heritage District, Persephone’s “beer farm” that’s surrounded by towering hop vines and coastal Douglas fir forest, and more!
