Four artisan beverage businesses in Langley take part in Sunday tour

As the popularity of craft alcohol continues to rise, four companies in Langley are inviting the public to see (and taste) for themselves what local breweries, cideries, meaderies and distilleries have to offer.

The first Langley Libations Tour is happening this Sunday, June 24, from 1 to 6 p.m.

“Since 2016, there has been a huge growth in craft liquor manufacturing within the Township of Langley,” the tour’s website states.

“To celebrate this, Trading Post Brewing, Fraser Valley Cider, Festina Lente Meadery and Roots and Wings Distillery are coming together to celebrate the diversity of the Langley artisan beverage scene.”

Tickets are $10 and include a tasting glass, and samples of food and drinks from all four locations. All participants will also receive a passport to stamp at each business, and those who complete the tour can enter their passports for a chance to win prizes.

Rides can be arranged through BC Brewery Tours, or if choosing to do the tour yourself, designated drivers can receive non-alcoholic beverages.
