Après in Whistler

Welcome to après. This is the time to celebrate your day in the mountains, a time to refuel, refresh, and most importantly reconnect with your fellow humans. We don’t just après-ski, we après-anything all year round, so put your skis aside, park the bike, hang up your clubs and toast your weary hiking feet with a cold beverage.

Whistler is proud to be featured as a stop on the BC Ale Trail. Love a good brew? Learn more about the BC Ale Trail.

How do you like to apres?

There's no right answer. Here's a small selection of spots ordered by style, but it’s not the complete list by any means. View all the venues here or simply take a walk through the streets and pick your patio.

No matter which mountain you have been playing on there's an après spot nearby to suit you. Grab a beer and a bite and enjoy the afternoon:

What is the BC Ale Trail?

Explore British Columbia’s raw wilderness and bounty of craft beer with the BC Ale Trail — the definitive online guide to BC’s dynamic craft beer community. Explore stouts and snow-capped peaks, brown ales and beaches, or bikes and hikes, all leading to some of BC’s best breweries and the super, natural landscapes that surround them.

A co-production of the BC Craft Brewers Guild and Destination BC with support from seven of BC’s Destination Marketing Organizations (DMOs), the self-guided tours will highlight local brewery destinations, nearby attractions and suggested sightseeing in each of the seven participating communities — Comox Valley, Kootenay Rockies, Nanaimo, Port Moody, Sunshine Coast, Victoria and Whistler. More destinations will be introduced in 2017.

Visit BCAleTrail.ca and begin your craft beer journey. Choose between seven different Ale Trails across British Columbia, including:

  • Victoria Ale Trail
  • Nanaimo / Comox Valley Ale Trail
  • Sunshine Coast Ale Trail
  • Port Moody Ale Trail
  • Whistler Ale Trail
  • Kootenay Rockies East Ale Trail
  • Kootenay Rockies West Ale Trail

Within each Ale Trail you will find recommended itineraries to explore your selected destination—this includes an array of craft breweries, pubs, restaurants, cafes, outdoor activities, sightseeing, accommodations and more.

Follow our suggested route or use the Ale Trail information to build your own trip. The itineraries are simply recommendations, so we encourage you to veer off course and #ExploreBC! If you want to plan your own trip, use our database to find the most comprehensive list of craft breweries in British Columbia.
