Whistler Craft Beer Month

To say it has been one heck of a last 18 months (or so) would be an understatement! And, let’s be honest, we could all use a little getaway—especially one that happens to be built around a craft beer itinerary and set in one of the most picturesque destinations in BC. Just saying.

Tourism Whistler, in partnership with Gibbons Whistler, has got you covered all through October with a myriad of craft beer-themed experiences ranging from exclusive releases, and tastings and tours, to axe throwing, trivia and even beer yoga.

We took a moment to plan our own little programme and round up some of the highlights of the inaugural Whistler Craft Beer Month:


Sip N Stretch takes place every Thursday during the month of October. Supplied photo

What: Sip N’ Stretch

Where: Westin Resort & Spa The Mountain Club

When: Oct 7th, 14th, 21st and 28th from 6 – 7 PM

Every Thursday in October, sip on a complementary local craft brew and enjoy an hour-long beer yoga session! Registration is by donation of $10 and all proceeds will go towards Whistler Community Services Society. Yes, it totally counts as exercise and does some good; we’ll go to the mat on that!
