With a variety of small boutique producers, Squamish is quickly becoming well known in the craft brew and distillery scene for its locally made beers, spirits and ciders.

With three craft breweries, three cideries and one spirit distillery right in town, many local restaurants (and a chocolatier) feature menus built to showcase local beer, cider and spirits.
