The Ale Trail Craft Brewery Tour

Tickets on sale now! We are also available for private bookings--please contact [email protected] for details.

Hop aboard the Ale Trail Craft Brewery Tour to visit some of Winnipeg's best local breweries and distilleries—and hear about the city’s wild past along the way!

Learn about our troublesome first police chief (who spent as much time in court defending his own escapades as he did testifying against criminals), the veterinarians who circumvented Prohibition laws by prescribing alcohol to four-legged ‘patients’, which local brewery created Budweiser’s most iconic marketing symbol, and more. With tons of trivia and the liquor-laced history they never tell you in school, this tour helps you discover Winnipeg’s craft beer scene in an entirely new way!

Tour includes:

  • Fully-narrated transportation and stops at three taprooms;
  • One guided facility tour;
  • A crash course in professional beer tasting; and
  • One flight (or cocktail at the distilleries) at each taproom, with food available for purchase at the last stop.

Don't want the drinks? Join us with a 'Dry Run' ticket! (Cocktails, wine, and non-alcoholic options available for purchase at select stops.)
