First Stop Farm Country Brewing

Start your brewery tour at Farm Country Brewing, celebrating agricultural heritage in the heart of Langley City. Their beer names reflect their farm roots: Barn Burner Citra Wheat Ale, Farmer’s Tan Amber Rye Ale, Saddle Up Stout, and Countryside Sour Blackberry Pear. Stop in to check out their latest rotating guest ciders and local wines. They also host lots of events in their huge tasting room, including live music and comedy shows.

Second Stop: Five Roads Brewing Co.

To get to your next stop two kilometres away, cross Glover Road and head west on Logan Avenue to 204 Street. Go north on 204 across the overpass, then turn left on 62 Avenue. Stay on 62 Avenue for two blocks, then turn right onto 202 Street. Watch for the brewery on your left half a block later.

Named for a nearby intersection, Five Roads Brewing is proud to represent the crossroads of the community. Their brewery was built with flexibility so they could change up their brews easily. Look for seasonal favourites like Oktoberfest Märzen and German Lager alongside old favourites like Permanent Resident IPA, which won Gold in the American IPA category at the 2021 Canadian Brewing Awards. If you’re hungry, try their house-made pizza or charcuterie boards.

Third Stop: Trading Post Brewery

The next stop is just 400m away around the corner. Continue north on 202 Street, then turn left into a parking lot about half a block before 64 Avenue. Follow the parking lot north, then west to the brewery.

Grab a seat at the Trading Post Brewery’s tasting room. It’s open to the brewery so you can watch (and smell!) the beer being made. They have 12 beers on tap and a full menu. Try something from one of the rotating guest taps or sample classics like Best Coast IPA and Amber Ale. Stop in on Saturday nights to enjoy live music.

Fourth Stop: Camp Beer Co.

Your fourth stop is 1.5km away just off 64 Avenue. Head west on 64 Avenue, then turn left onto 197 Street. Make the first right into a parking lot to find the brewery.

Camp Beer Co. is a casual brewery that aims to be a place where the community can gather to celebrate local tastes. Their beers are lower in alcohol and higher in flavour – that way you can enjoy more of them. Their signature beer is the easy-drinking Camp Beer Lager, but they also make lots of adventurous brews like the First Light Coffee Cream Ale, Lost Horizons Guava Kolsch with Gin Botanicals, and Forager Bumbleberry Sour. Their tasting rooms serves up snacks, smokies, and baked potatoes, but the real stand out is their s’mores bar with four sweet and gooey varieties including Black Forest and S’moreo.

Fifth Stop: Dead Frog Brewery

If you still have energy, there are two more breweries to visit but they are a little further away. It’s six kilometres to your next stop. Take 197 Street north, then turn right onto 68 Avenue. Use the overpass to cross 200 Street, then go north on the bike path. Turn right on 88th Avenue, then left on 201 Street. Find the brewery one block later at the end of the cul-de-sac.

After over a decade in Aldergrove, Dead Frog Brewery moved into a new space in Langley in 2018. They have a huge tasting room with a full kitchen and over 20 beers on frog-leg-shaped taps. They’re known for their innovative and often strange beers. Try their incredibly strong Warhead Imperial Kettle Sour or their spicy Pepper Lime Lager. Lovers of more sedate beers will love the Classic Nut Brown Ale, the recipe that launched Dead Frog back in 2008.

Last Stop: Smugglers Trail Brewery

The final stop is two kilometres away on the other side of Highway 1. To get there, head south on 201 Street, then right on 88 Avenue. Go right on 200 Street and follow it over the highway. Go right at the fork onto 201 Street, then make the first right into 200A Street. One block later turn right into the Port Kells Centre to find the brewery.

During the Gold Rush of the 1950s, Langley was a key stop for miners, but it was also important for smugglers moving gold, beer, and other contraband out of sight of British tax collectors and authorities. This newer brewery pays homage to that history with its name: Smugglers Trail Brewery. They newer lean heavily on the English style of cask-conditioned beer with traditional beers like their Flaskers British Ale, and their English Style IPA Orion 1-1, which won a silver medal at the 2021 Canadian Brewing Awards. They also change up flavours seasonally if you’re looking for something unexpected. There’s also a full kitchen if you want a meal.
