3. Tofino Brewing Co. // Tofino

The two best reasons to visit Tofino: waves and BEER. You can't take a trip to Tofino without visiting the Tofino Brewing Co.

4.  Persephone Brewing Company // Gibsons

Beer connoisseurs love anything and everything Persephone. Tucked away in Gibsons, this brewery is definitely one of BC's best-kept secrets (you can even pick your own hops)!

5. Whistler Brewing Co. // Whistler

You can't go wrong with anything from Whistler Brewing Co. It's that simple. From their summer Grapefruit Ale to their winter Chestnut Ale, any season is a good season for beer.

Great beer and an awesome rooftop patio. The locals swear by it, trust me.

7. Bad Tattoo Brewing // Penticton

Rock oven pizza and crisp beer? It's a match made in heaven. All their beer is hand-crafted, and you can even get a tour of the brewery!

8. Fernie Brewing Co. // Fernie

If you like fall beers, you HAVE to try their Pumpkinhead Ale. Every year, they blow all of the other breweries out of the water with their autumn releases.

9. Foamers' Folly Brewing Co. // Pitt Meadows

Foamers' Folly is the first craft brewery in Pitt Meadows. With vinyl music, board games, and amazing beer, what more could you ask for?

10. 33 Acres Brewing // Vancouver

Looking for something trendy, local and Instagrammable AF? 33 Acres is your brewery. The minimalist interior and their delicious beer will have you drunk in love.

11. Parallel 49 Brewing // Vancouver

A good old Vancity classic. If you're looking for something different, they are always experimenting with new brews at Parallel 49. Their lineup is ridiculous and we bet that you've never seen anything like it.
