Your adventure was a complete sufferfest. There was sweat, tears and maybe even a little bit of blood. But once you arrived at the destination, it was all worth it. That is, until you had to get back to where you started from. At this point, the motivation to continue onwards becomes that cold and frothy beer that’s waiting at the bottom. In Whistler, there are loads of places to relive what happened out in the woods, only then, it’s amid smiles and laughter. We’ve rounded up our favourite locations to enjoy an after adventure beer.
HandleBar Cafe And Apres
Chances are you’re going to be hungry after your activities so head to HandleBar for some Germanic street food and tasty craft beer. Fried pickles, Currywurst and made in house sauces are all done to perfection. If that doesn’t entice you, the four daily happy hours will!
The Beacon’s patio might be one of the best locations to people watch but guaranteed you will either be a) to tired to care about what’s going on around you or b) way to immersed in what went down in the back country. The Beacon boasts 12 craft beers on tap and an impressive menu to satisfy your empty belly.
Snuggle up in the cozy Fitzsimmons Pub, located in upper village. Over a board game and a craft beer, re-hash the close calls and epic dirt or snow.
Coast Mountain Brewing
With names like Field Guide Ale and Daydreams NE IPA, your going to be inspired to get out in the mountains even if that’s where you just came from. What’s more, all the beers are brewed in house. Got a little bit of time? Visit their tasting room to sample and chat about how your own adventure unfolded.
Brickworks Public House
If you plan it right, you can catch one of the local bands playing. With music in the back ground, savor one of the many craft beers or spirits that have been careful curated for your enjoyment. Have a few too many then stumble next door to the Delta Hotel and get a room. If your up for it, head out on another adventure the next day!
A local spot, Brandy’s is a much loved sports bar. Keep the stoke level high by watching the big screens which usually have new and old ski movies playing as well as a current hockey game. If you feeling peckish, order from the Keg Steak House, located right upstairs.
The after adventure beer is almost as important as the adventure itself. Make sure that you have plans for one in place to keep team moral high and the motivation to persevere in place.
