Port Moody

New Kids on the Block

Back in 2014 it seemed like a quirky twist of fate when two breweries opened on the same street in a supposedly sleepy suburb. When a third brewery joined the original duo on Murray Street, folks began to take notice. Now with four unique operations on “Brewers Row,” beer lovers agree that Port Moody is anything but sleepy—it’s a destination.

Call this the BC Ale Micro-Trail. Where else can you visit four breweries on a three-block stretch of the same street? According to Google Maps, it will only take you five minutes to stroll Brewers Row from end to end—but of course, you’ll want to stop at each of the breweries along the way.

Walking west to east, the starting point is Moody Ales, the second brewery to open here back in 2014. As its name implies, this brewery focuses on ales of all types. The welcoming tasting room and patio area out front will keep you more than satisfied until you feel the need to stretch your legs.

Next up is the Parkside Brewery, the newest of the bunch, with a spacious tasting room and patio out front. Brewer Vern Lambourne left his longtime position at Granville Island Brewing to open this brewery in the city where he lives with his family.

Yellow Dog Brewing is the “leader of the pack” as the original brewery to open here. It opened a big, new tasting room early in 2017, and also has an outdoor picnic area behind the brewery.

One door down is Twin Sails Brewing, so named because its owners are twin brothers Cody and Clay Allmin. This brewery originally set itself apart with a focus on German styles, including lagers, pilsners and hefeweizens, but more recently it has been producing cutting-edge Hazy IPAs and other unique beers, too.

Produced In Collaboration With
City of Port Moody

Port Moody – City of the Arts – is a vibrant waterfront city. Natural environment, heritage character, and unique shops and restaurants – you’ll find it all here, only 35 minutes east of Vancouver. Beautiful Rocky Point Park is a great place to start your adventure: get out on the water in a kayak, walk or bike along the Shoreline Trail, and – when it’s time to relax – cross Murray Street in search of some world-class craft beer. You’ll find the latter along Brewers Row, which has been a hit with locals and visitors alike since the first brewery opened in 2014.
