The Ale Trail Craft Brewery Tour

“Winnipeg’s Best Tour Ex-beer-ience!”

Over the last few years, Winnipeg has witnessed a craft beer explosion. Hop aboard the Ale Trail Craft Brewery Tour to visit some of the city’s best new taprooms and brewpubs—and learn about its wild and crazy past along the way!

As part of this unique three-hour experience, enjoy a crash course in the art of professional beer tasting, a behind-the-scenes brewery tour, and a pint or tasting flight at each stop. En route between breweries, our trolley guide will also be sharing some of Winnipeg’s most intoxicating stories. Learn the scandal of our first chief of police—who spent as much time in court defending his own escapades as he did testifying against criminals—hear about the veterinarians who circumvented Prohibition laws by prescribing alcohol to their four-legged ‘patients’, find out which Winnipeg brewery created Budweiser’s most iconic marketing symbol, and much more. With trivia, giveaways, and the liquor-laced history they never told you in school, this tour will help you discover Manitoba’s burgeoning craft beer scene in an entirely new way!

Each tour includes stops at three breweries—Little Brown Jug, Torque Brewing, and One Great City Brewing Co.—and round-trip trolley transportation from The Forks Market. One pint or tasting flight per brewery included in ticket price, with food and additional drinks available for purchase.



Each tour visits three breweries and runs approximately three hours.
Tours depart from in front of The Forks Market (1 Forks Market Road) at The Forks.
