The North of the Fraser Ale Trail — Four riverfront communities that share a diverse and dynamic beer scene.

The four municipalities of New Westminster, Burnaby, Coquitlam and Port Coquitlam are aligned in many ways — not just by geography, but also through their bustling craft breweries.

Before Vancouver even existed, New Westminster was a traditional meeting place along the Fraser River and a thriving capital city. A long love affair with beer began in 1860 and continued until 2005 when the local Labatt Brewery closed, but the tantalizing smell of malted barley and hops returned to New West in 2014 when Steel & Oak Brewing opened its doors.

The City of Burnaby might be Vancouver’s little sibling, but it has its own dynamic brewery scene that sets it apart.  Meanwhile, the beer scene in Coquitlam and Port Coquitlam is one of the freshest and most interesting you will find anywhere in BC.
