You’ve probably heard the names or have seen the labels on the bottles, Festina Lente, Fraser Valley Cider, the list goes on. Now it’s time to put a taste to the name! However, this isn’t your regular pub-crawl.
The Langley Libations Tour is as good as the name suggests. A four-stop tour that celebrates the diversity and local craftsmanship of craft beer, spirits, wine and cider. Not only will you taste a little bit of each, but included in the tour are food pairings and the sounds of live musicians to serenade your afternoon.
To participate, find your way to the Tour’s website, get yourself and your friends tickets ($10 each) and jump in a car on Sunday, June 24th from 1 pm 6 pm. Each stop of the way, you’ll get a passport stamped, which you can enter for a grand prize draw.
For designated drivers, there is also some satisfaction and a reward for driving your friends while they “experience” the tour. DD’s can also taste their own non-alcoholic cocktails, and are entered in their own draw.
You know the details, now brush up on your knowledge of these local farms and tasting rooms, and get ready for a tour that you could only find in Langley!
