Craft Breweries in Langley
March 26, 2019
Within the last couple of years, we’ve seen some major growth in local craft breweries in Langley and the Lower Mainland! It’s so exciting to see all of the different types of beer that are being brewed, and the stories behind the breweries themselves.
The first craft brewery to pop up in Langley was Dead Frog Brewery in Aldergrove, and they have now moved to Walnut Grove! This brewery started in 2006 with only a select number of beers available in draft form only (nut brown, lager, pale ale, and honey brown). Fast forward to 2019, and Dead Frog is producing their regular beers but throwing in specialty brews like Blueberry Blast Kettle Sour to Nutty Uncle Peanut Butter Stout and of course the Winter Beeracle Winter Ale. Dead Frog also offers tours of the brewery, which give you previews of the new beers and of course, tastings. Make sure you book ahead of time, as their tours fill up fast! Dead Frog also offers growler fills, so make sure to pack your own or purchase a Dead Frog Growler.
Trading Post Brewing was born from a passion for craft beer and community. With two great locations in Langley, you’re never too far away from a great beer. You can choose from beers such as 1827 Helles Lager, Best Coast IPA, London Porter, and Tart Cranberry Ale. Stop into Trading Post Brewing (Brewing & Tasting Room) on Thursdays after 2 pm for their Cask Night, they tap a new flavour for you to try! If you’re looking for a bite to eat, stop by Trading Post Eatery in Fort Langley. They even have suggested Beer and Food Pairings!
Five Roads Brewing Co. is Langley’s newest brewery! The name of Five Roads is inspired by the historic Five Corners intersection in the Township of Langley and alludes to how crossroads have always served as hubs of activity and special places to gather. Come visit with friends and family, enjoy a glass of Langley Gold, indulge in some local eats, pick a board game and stay a while!
Stop by B’s Craft Beer Lounge to try one of the 200+ different local and import beers that they carry! For those who aren’t interested in beer, they carry craft ciders and a few really flavourful fruit lambics that don’t taste like beer at all. Their knowledgeable staff are happy to educate, so feel free to ask if you have any questions regarding beer styles or the brewing process. If you think that you’ve tried everything worth trying in BC, come down and take a look at their wall- we guarantee that they can find something new for you!
