Our blog is chock full of great ideas for fun things to see and do in York Durham and Headwaters. We are always adding new content and updating old posts, but sometimes you might stumble upon something from our vault. If this article has inspired you to hit the road, be sure to double-check that the featured stops in this post are still welcoming visitors.
Let me introduce you to one of the newest and funnest local tourism concepts in the past two years. Imagine that you and your people love beer (not too difficult to do), love visiting craft breweries (and there are so so many) and love a good road trip (who doesn’t). Combine all of these things together and there you have it. This terrific concept called BrewBus Canada was develop by Tim Carlson and it is based in Newmarket. They will help you explore new breweries and find a new craft beer to enjoy, which may even become a new favorite. They hope to take you from “where you live on to new places”.
Yes folks, it’s a thing. This is a business that is willing to take your beer drinking road trip to a whole new level. Imagine ten of your favorite people and your party playlist as you head out to see 3-4 breweries on the day’s agenda. It is a super way to get people interacting with people again and we all know it has been a while.
Where there’s beer there’s hope. BrewBus Canada has created this new beer tour experience. It’s a perfect idea for celebrating birthdays, bachelor/bachelorette parties, company events, reunions, sports teams and more. You can book as individuals or in groups. They offer different pick-up locations and various routes.
BrewBus Canada has friendly and experienced staff who know the region very well. They have several routes already set up to help you enjoy your daytrip or you can customize your own route. They travel to Simco, Muskoka, Halton, Peel, Durham and Kawartha. The list of breweries they visit in the region is growing quickly, many of which you may be familiar with already. This proves once again that “If you build it they will come”. They will help quench your thirst for great tasting cold craft beer in awesome venues around the region.
BrewBus Canada is also looking to expand their business into Brew Adventures which will take you to other destinations such as a comedy clubs, casinos, musical events, sporting events or a day of golfing. All with brewery stops along the way of course. “You can’t buy happiness, but beer comes pretty close”.
