Hit the open road and rediscover the flavours that make Kamloops unique. From wineries to breweries and local fare, indulge in an apres experience after a day or two of outdoor adventure. Here are the top 4 ways to apres in Kamloops this summer.
Sip on award-winning, bright wines on the patios of the Kamloops Wine Trail this summer. Enjoy pre-poured tastings on the Harper's Trail Winery patio while taking in the scenic views of the hoodoos, indulge in a new wine flight at Privato Vineyard & Winery, or enjoy lunch paired with a glass of Hands Up White at Monte Creek Ranch Winery. If you don't want to worry about driving, book a wine tour with one of Kamloops' operators, Tastefull Excursions or DiVine Tours.
After adventuring in the outdoors, après at one of 5 craft breweries in Kamloops, each offering a diverse experience. Indulge in a Beef n Blue taco paired with the latest Juice Train at Iron Road Brewing, or have your beer poured right from the tank with Crispy Brussel Sprouts at Bright Eye Brewing. Downtown, pair a brew with a Glazed and Confused burger at Alchemy Brewing, enjoy famous deep-fried pickles and a Peppered Ale on the patio at the Noble Pig Brewhouse, or bring in a local dish from a surrounding restaurant to pair with an Impeachment at Red Collar Brewing.
Kamloops is home to unique fare throughout the city, from casual family restaurants to lively pubs and intimate cafes. Indulge in a Crispy Chicken & Waffles on the Mittz Kitchen patio or under the lights at Brownstone Restaurant. Fuel up for the day at Jamaican Kitchen for brunch with a Caribbean twist or pick up a cup of Joe and a baked in-house breakfast sandwich from The Art We Are Cafe.
