A visit to Squamish is not complete without a trip to the local brew pub or distillery. 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. Explore the brewing & distilling culture, learn about the brewing process and get a behind-the-scenes look at the workings of these crafts and enjoy some of the many excellent brews with a delicious meal at one of Squamish’s tasting rooms.

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. It’s clear that a dedication to high-quality, locally-made brews and spirits is a key component of Squamish’s distinctive culture.
