Brew Street. Brewers Row. The Port Moody Ale Trail. Whatever you choose to call it, this short stretch of breweries is one of the Tri-Cities’ best kept secrets. Located just a few steps away from the Port Moody SkyTrain station, Brew Street provides beer lovers with convenient access to their favourite lagers, IPAs, porters and more.  In total, the ale trail is 450 m starting at Moody Ales and finishing at Twin Sales Brewing. According to Google Maps, that’s only a 5-minute walk! Be sure to plan ahead and drink responsibly.

Aside from its handy location, one thing that draws people to the breweries is their focus on community culture. Each brewery provides quality beer in a space that is enjoyable for everyone. Kids are welcome at all four breweries making visits suitable for all families.

Here is our recommended route:

First Stop: Moody Ales (2601 Murray St, Port Moody, BC)

Established in 2014 by two founders who previously worked in IT, Moody Ales focuses on creating “quality, balanced, flavourful craft beers for every day drinking”. During the week, part of their lounge doubles as production space so you are sure to catch a glimpse of the beer making in action. They have up to 14 beers on tap including regular favourites as well as weekly experimental batches. There is something here for everyone!

Second Stop: Parkside Brewery (2731 Murray St, Port Moody, BC)

Parkside Brewery is aptly named after its location – it is situated right across from Rocky Point Park. The owner, Vern Lambourne, spent many years working at Granville Island Brewing before deciding to open his own brewery. Their tasting room selections range from pilsners to stouts and everything in between (including a few Okanagan wines). Oh, and don’t forget to challenge your friends or family to a game of shuffleboard while you’re there!

Third Stop: Yellow Dog Brewing (2817 Murray St #1, Port Moody, BC)

The “leader of the pack” on Brew Street, so to speak, is Yellow Dog Brewing. This family-run brewery was the first craft brewery to grace the sidewalks of what is now known as Brew Street. As you walk through the doors of Yellow Dog, you will see that their tasting room is right next to their brewing space. As you sip your beer, be sure to pop into the brewing space to see where the magic of their signature beer is created! This one is definitely a local favourite.

Final Stop: Twin Sales Brewing (2821 Murray St, Port Moody, BC)

Last but certainly not least, is Twin Sails Brewing. Located next door to Yellow Dog Brewing, Twin Sails was created by twin brothers whose original focus was on German beers. From there, they began to expand their beer list and now focus on their American IPAs and Stouts. Looking for something different? Try their Orange Creamsicle Milkshake IPA! This beer was created in partnership with Tap & Barrel and is filled with orange and vanilla goodness.
