Sun Peaks craft beer & winery tours are for those who love wine. Or beer. Or better yet, both!
Put together your own group or join in an existing group, and enjoy some of the finest local wines around along the burgeoning Kamloops Winery Trail, and some tasty craft beer from two of the most popular local breweries in Kamloops. Or just visit 3 or 4 of the Kamloops craft breweries and cidery - it's up to you.
Perhaps you will even experience the extraordinary Kamloops Hoodoos as you travel to Harper's Trail Winery, and then carry on to the beautiful Monte Creek Ranch and Winery, and your tasting fees for both are already included in your price.
Throughout Sun Peaks Resort, you will also find a great selection of Best Sun Peaks beer - regular and craft varieties. Visit our Best Sun Peaks Bar, Patio and Apres-ski page for more information on where to enjoy great beer at the resort.
Click if you were looking for information on the new supposed 'Sun Peaks Brew Pub' instead of craft beer tours from Sun Peaks.
Pour yourself back into Divines' luxurious Mercedes touring van (for larger groups) or their comfortable Honda Odyssey passenger van (smaller groups) and carry on to the Noble Pig to start your hops part of the tour.
The Pig, as it's affectionately known, is Kamloops' first and so far only microbrewery that combines their own delicious craft beers that they create themselves, with delightful beer-fusion food items that are created by their own chef (meals not included in the tour price).
Their goal: The marriage between beautiful food and unique beer. Simply put, incredible craft, house made brews paired with meticulously created food with only the best ingredients.
Following your beer samples at the Noble Pig, you will be whisked away to another popular craft brewery - Red Collar Brewing where you can sample another great variety of local craft beer.
Red Collar Brewing is a small craft brewery located in the heart of Kamloops and features the best of old world brewing techniques in a modern, 80 seat tasting room that is designed to promote fun and conversation (old world concepts!?).
Their thinking: All beers are equal but some beers are more equal than others. :)
You can also incorporate Kamloop's newest craft brewery, Iron Road Brewing, into your Best Sun Peaks beer tour around Kamloops. Iron Road is the creation of two beer-loving geologists (Richard Phillips & Jared Tarswell) , along with award-winning brewer Aaron MacInnis, who work together to create delicious, balanced beer that they hope you're going to love.
They are located on Camosun Crescent, just a few blocks away from Thompson Rivers University.
They also have a pretty good selection of pub-style food so you can stop in to sample some fine, cold craft beer, along with food in a 60-person taproom where you can watch the game on tv or watch their brewing process up close and personal.
Craft beer lovers will have a 4th option in the
fall of 2018 when Alchemy Brewing opens their craft brewery and tasting
room. They have been perfecting their
American-style craft beer recipes with delicious IPA’s and meaty stouts.
This will add to the Kamloops Ale Trail concept, since they
will be located near the already popular Noble Pig Craft Brewery &
Restaurant, and will be offering fresh pizzas and smokehouse meat sandwiches
thanks to their wood-fired pizza oven.
This cool area will then have 3 craft breweries close together, with
more coming soon.
And the fall of 2019 will bring the 5th
Kamloops craft brewery to the area, with the opening of Bright Eye Brewery on
Tranquille Road, on the north side of the Thompson River. Bright Eye will be creating and pouring their
liquid gold right from the kettle tap, and will be working closely with local
businesses as well as with other British Columbia craft breweries, using fresh
and local ingredients, to inspire ‘metal’ winning creations.
