The provincial initiative has four local brewers.
The province wants local residents, neighbours and tourists to raise a glass to craft breweries in Maple Ridge, Pitt Meadows and the rest of B.C.
And to have a sip.
Destination B.C., the tourism arm of the provincial government, has contributed $250,000 to create various ale trails, meant to help market craft beer operations to the rest of Canada and abroad. Local cities chip in $5,000. Local brewers contribute the same amount, combined.
The Maple Ridge ale trail consists of three craft brewers in the city, as well as one in Pitt Meadows and two local pubs that serve craft beer, all with recommended itineraries for guests.
