Welcome to the BC Ale Trail podcast page.

Aaron from the Cascadian Beer Podcast will visit a different BC brewery every month and report back here. Follow along, subscribe, and send us suggestions for a brewery you’d like us to profile.



I’m in Chemainus, BC on Vancouver Island at a brewery that took over seven years to open their doors. There is a lot behind the story of Riot Brewing Co. so I spoke with two of the founders, Aly Tomlin & Ralf Rosenke.

Find Riot Brewing Co. on the Cowichan, Nanaimo & Parksville Qualicum Beach Ale Trail.



What if all your favorite breweries were on the same street? Well, that’s exactly what has happened in Port Moody, BC. The zoning of the municipality has created a unique situation where all the breweries are located on Murray Street. There are four breweries situated on this street, which has earned it the nickname of “Brewers Row.”

I’m focusing on two breweries in this episode and visit the remaining breweries in a future episode.

In this episode I’ll be speaking with the first brewery to open on this street, Yellow Dog Brewing with co-owner Mike Coghill.

Later I’ll walk down to the second brewery, Moody Ales and speak with co-founder Adam Crandall.
