With so many fabulous craft breweries in the Tri-Cities, choosing the best will arguably be a daunting task.
However, it will be a lot of fun to try them all and make a decision.
To make the challenge a little more interesting, BC Ale Trail is asking craft beer enthusiasts to nominate their favourite Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam and/or Port Moody brewery — and possibly win a prize.
The 2023 Best Brewer Experience Award looks to find out who is doing it best by its Aug. 31 deadline — whether it's an ever-changing rotating tap menu and delicious accompanying food to a great seasonal patio or trivia night.
Previous winners include R&B Brewing in Vancouver, Twin City Brewing in Port Alberni and Land & Sea Brewing in Comox, as well as the reigning champion, Camp Beer Co. in Langley.
Voters can submit a nomination and will be entered into a draw to win a "Beer Lovers Prize Pack," which includes a $100 gift card to a BC Ale Trail brewery of choice, a limited-edition sling bag, hoodie and camp mug.
Once voting closes at the end of this month, the nominations will be shortlisted with a winner to be announced in October during BC Craft Beer Month.
Craft breweries in the Tri-Cities are as follows:
- Patina Brewing Co. Brew House & BBQ
- Tinhouse Brewing Co.
- Northpaw Brew Co.
- Boardwalk Brewery
- Taylight Brewing
- Twin Sails Brewing
- Yellow Dog Brewing Co.
- Moody Ales & Co.
- Brave Brewing Co.
