Best Beer In Whistler: About Coast Mountain Brewing
Coast Mountain Brewing quickly found a place in the hearts of the Whistler locals. And for us the brewery it has become a staple on the way home from a long day hiking or skiing.
Designed and built by the Winter family and friends, Coast Mountain focuses on complex, flavourful & session-able beers.
Kevin and his team brew North American influenced ales and lagers with a passion to explore beyond the usual, to include historical recipes from traditional brewing regions across Europe.
Coast Mountain’s sour series has already begun with a small barrel program in the works. And their tasting room has a comfortable, relaxed atmosphere built for the mountainside locals and adventurous tourist, alike.
Our favourite staples at Coast Mountain Brewing
While nothing can quite win us over like a pint of their Bonfire Stout (available in the winter months), Coast Mountain’s line-up never disappoints. Whether it’s the Blood Orange Sour in the spring, the Woodcut Ale in the fall, watch out for their small batch brews alongside the regulars.
Here’s 3 of our favourites from the full-time beers at Coast Mountain Brewing:
The Suveryor IPA
Our Signature IPA at 7% ABV and 68IBUs is a massive hop-forward ale, built with solid structure to showcase the hops that shine in this Pacific North West IPA. Columbus, Chinook,Ekuanot & Citra drive the hop flavour. We poured so much love into this the Brewmaster’s favourite.
Sunbreak is a French Farmhouse Ale, brewed with a select combination of ingredients including Simcoe and Ekuanot hops so incredibly tasty, it’s ridiculous. We taste berry, lime, papaya, pine and fresh peppers, but you don’t have to. Enjoy.
Fire Steel Red Ale
Our NorthWest Red Ale is brewed with six carefully selected specialty malts and an intense burst of flavour stemming from Simcoe, Centennial & Chinook hops. High in the mountains, Fire Steel shines with flavour.
