Whistler is built on many things, skiing, snowboarding, biking, hiking, and an all-around good time. But one thing that is a common ingredient to these activities is beer! Whislterites love a beer after a day on the mountain, a pilsner with friends at the lake, a cold one in hand to celebrate that we are nearly into another ski season. So, it only makes sense that Whistler celebrates Craft Beer Month this October!

If you have not heard of Craft Beer Month, it is thirty-one thirsty days of honoring everything that is craft beer. There are locations all over British Columbia that are celebrating, but why would you choose anywhere other than Whistler to celebrate? There are many experiences and activities planned for the month throughout the town, plus, beer in the mountains just feels right.

Below we have highlighted what we think are the must-do and see activities. If you would like a full schedule for the month, you can click here.
