New West, Delta
& Surrey

Neighbours with a passion for craft beer.

Apart from being neighbours, Delta, New Westminster and Surrey have something else in common: they are home to some of the most highly regarded breweries in Canada. Surrey’s Central City Brewers & Distillers was named Canadian Brewery of the Year twice while it was just a small brewpub, and has since expanded into a big, custom-built facility with an impressive tasting room. Delta’s Four Winds Brewing took home Brewery of the Year honours at the 2015 Canadian Brewing Awards, as well as Beer of the Year in 2016. And Steel & Oak Brewing redefined contemporary craft beer in New West, one of BC’s oldest cities with a long legacy of brewing.

The triangle of municipalities made up of Delta, New Westminster and Surrey all border the mighty Fraser River that has played such a major role in British Columbia’s development as a province. These good neighbours, joined by bridges and highways, have much in common, yet they also have their own unique stories to share.

Delta, the southwestern tip of mainland BC, is home to the communities of Ladner, Tsawwassen and North Delta. This diverse municipality has it all: an urban/multicultural vibe, deep historical roots, as well as agriculture, beaches and parks. It is also home to one of Canada’s best breweries: Four Winds Brewing.

Before Vancouver even existed, New Westminster was a thriving colonial capital that was named by Queen Victoria of England in 1859, earning its “Royal City” nickname that endures today. Brewing began almost immediately when the City Brewery opened there in 1861. That brewery eventually became the Westminster Brewery, which evolved into a Labatt operation that was a major local employer until it closed in 2005. The smell of malted barley and hops returned to New West in 2014 when Steel & Oak Brewing opened its doors.

Surrey is BC’s second largest city and its fastest growing, set to outpace Vancouver before too long. It offers something for everyone, including parks, performing arts, shopping, sports and, of course, craft beer. Originally a small brewpub that achieved awards on the national and international stage, Central City Brewers & Distillers’ spectacular new brewery beckons.

Explore all that these neighbours have to offer: history, culture, activities, and, of course, a passion for craft beer.
