Craft beer lovers, listen up. Starting February 1st, you can hop on a bus or train and go on an exciting beer-tasting journey throughout Metro Vancouver – with 64 participating breweries, distilleries, tap houses, and private liquor stores to check out.

The BC Ale Trail just announced five new ‘passports’ that award participants with a stamp for each spot they visit. Once you’ve earned six unique stamps, you can turn in your ballot to any participating location for the chance to win a beer-themed Staycation package – and multiple entries are encouraged!

The new passports are part of a larger program called Dine the Line (presented by Translink and West Coast Foods), which takes participants on a journey through Metro Vancouver’s diverse food and drink scene. From the best plant-based spots to the best bubble tea, all you have to do is download the map of your choice, hop on a train, and check them out.

And now, for the month of February – you can do the same thing with some of the best craft beer in and around the city. Simply snag a passport at one of the 64 participating spots, and get to tasting!
