It's time to take a flight... Kamloops style. Food and drink spots in the city are serving up unique flight features that are sure to land a treat for your tastebuds. From sangria to gin and ice cream to beer, check out these flavourful spots to enjoy for dine-in or on a patio (check ahead with the businesses as some patios welcome your four-legged friends!)
ROMEOs Kitchen & Spirits
ROMEOs Kitchen & Spirits is mixing up Friday Flight features on rotation every month from mixologist @sipsbyquinn. Cozy up fireside with their October feature - Fall Cocktail Flights - where you can dive into flavours like pumpkin, butterbeer, caramel apple, and toasted pecan. Keep an eye out at the beginning of each month moving forward to see what the features will be.
Cordo Resto + Bar
Located downtown on Victoria Street, Cordo Resto + Bar first introduced Kamloops to the gin flight scene. Mixer Maddy not only mixes up seasonal cocktails with local ingredients but she brings together innovative flavours and gins to mix with your Barker & Quinn Tonic Water.
The Ice Cream Social
Who said flights were just for air time or craft brews? The Ice Cream Social is bringing a "cool" new way to indulging ice cream. For those who can't decide on just one or two flavours, now's your time to shine - select 6 of your favourite flavours and enjoy an ice cream flight on their newly made trays.
Gin Lane Co.
Whether you're looking for a flight of craft brew or flight of cocktails, Gin Lane Co. can help you get the best of both worlds. Located at the same spot as Red Collar Brewing, Gin Lane Co. is mixing up batches of cocktails made with one of their three gins made on site - Borealis, Aquarius or Edmond's.
Red Beard Cafe
Summer is made for sangria and patios especially on an Instagrammable patio, which Red Beard Cafe recently renovated with an extended pergola. Pair that with their new Sangria Flights and you're set for the afternoon or evening (we don't judge). Not into sangria? They also serve up beer or cider flights from local breweries and cideries across the province and country.
Are you an IPA drinker, lager lover, or both? Let us help you make an easy decision. Get crafty with a flight at one of Kamloops' 5 craft breweries so you can sample their innovative flavours with their staple beers or one of their rotating taps.
- Noble Pig Brewhouse
- Iron Road Brewing
- Alchemy Brewing
- Red Collar Brewing
- Bright Eye Brewing Note: smaller sizes of beer are available, as there is no designated flight option
Privato Vineyard & Winery &
Woodward Cider Co.
Sip back, relax... there's also cider and wine flights at Privato Vineyard & Winery and Woodward Cider Co., located at the same family farm along the North Thompson River. Pick up picnic items from inside their tasting room and to enjoy with your flight on their scenic, quaint patio. If you visit on a Sunday afternoon this summer, you will also be rewarded with free live music with their Sunday Sessions.
Make it a full-round experience by pairing one of the flights with a menu item at each establishment. Click here for more information on food and drink spots in Kamloops.
