Richmond has a lot to offer. Most notably, the beautiful Steveston village and boardwalk and, recently, a burgeoning craft beer community. Fuggles & Warlock Craftworks recently took home some serious hardware at the BC Beer Awards, which means, you now have no excuse not to visit their tasting room, and tack on a few others too.
Check out the seasonal goodies pouring this fall and winter in Richmond.

Bean Me Up Espresso Milk Stout, 5.7%
Coffee, meet beer. We think you’ll get along perfectly, and so do the follks at Fuggles & Warlock. This delightful, winter-friendly stout made in collaboration with Notch Coffee is extra creamy and sweet from the added lactose. Enjoy it on tap, or in cans.

Sirens Chai Saison, 5.75
Basically just as magical as real sirens themselves, Brittania’s Sirens Chai Saison is a “refreshing and effervescent farmhouse ale” made with a chai tea blend of rooibos, orange, star anise, clove and pepper, paired with Brittania’s special brand of Belgian yeast. A gorgeous addition to a cozy winters day.
Sea Hound Oatmeal Stout, 5.2%
This smooth and rich oatmeal irish cream is made with roasted malts and cold-brew from Steveston Coffee Co. The addition of oats and lactose provide a creamy, full-mouth feel “while aromas of chocolate and coffee are balanced by a dry finish. Slainte!”
Ashore Rye Porter, 5.2%
The malted Rye adds a funky little twist to the traditional brown style Porter, offering a spicy finish, chocolate flavours with hints of lightly roasted coffee make this a sessionable dark ale.
14200 Entertainment Boulevard, Richmond
James Brown Ale, 6%
Bronze winner at the 2019 BC Beer Awards, this brew boasts strong notes of chocolate finished off with willamette and fuggle hops.
