A couple of weeks ago, my friend and wine writer, Karl Kliparchuk joined me on our own tour of three fairly new craft breweries in Port Moody.
Our first stop was at Yellow Dog Brewing
The tasting room is themed all about dogs and is well thought out where the blackboard indicated which beers are available. We sat at the tasting bar that over looked the wall of dog designs made by schoolkids, there is also table seating. Established in 2014, this is a family-run brewery focused on producing high quality locally crafted beer for everyone to enjoy.

Our next stop, was next door to Twin Sails Brewing
In this brewery, they specialize in a German style of beer.
On the paddle from left to right is the Hefeweizen, Roggenweizen and the Sticke Altbier
2821 Murray Street, Port Moody
Tasting Room Hrs: Sun 11-9 Mon/Tue 2-9 Wed/Thu 2-10 Fri 2-11 Sat 12-11
Our last stop of the night was to Moody Ales
A two block walk West from Twin Sails Brewing to Moody Ales, this brewery had a beautiful and spacious tasting room. The Craft brewery features a tasting room, growler fills, retail and also does wholesale to restaurants and bars around the city.
In the tasting flight box, from left to right is the Hardy Brown Ale, Sublime Pineapple Hefeweizen, Lusty Chocolate Oatmeal stout and the Nitro Smoked Porter
2601 Murray Street, Port Moody
This bus adventure and the neighborhood walking tour was a lot of fun and it was great to explore more of the neighborhood and experience more of the local craft beer scene in Port Moody. Most of the tasting rooms are open daily, so put on your walking shoes then find a friend or two to join you.
