Craft beer brewing has really taken off over the last ten years. You can find microbreweries springing up all over. Discover unique local beer and also learn something about the brewing process on an Abbotsford brewery tour!
The relatively recent explosion of locally produced craft beers is a boon for beer enthusiasts everywhere. The opportunity to discover and experience fresh artisanal beers crafted by independent breweries is an exciting incentive to travel.
Most craft breweries feature a tap room and many are eager to take you on a tour of their works. Brewery tours are fascinating on their own. Whether it’s a large warehouse-sized facility or two guys working out of a converted garage, you’re bound to learn something new. You may even discover your new favorite beer!
The Fraser Valley is home to more than 15 craft breweries. You could easily make your own Fraser Valley Craft Beer Trail! In this post, though, we’re going to focus on the Abbotsford area alone.
