As I walked into Trading Post Brewing Company for the first time, I was met with the friendly glow of dim lights and wooden tap handles attached to numerous gigantic chrome vats—my excitement was instant. The new local craft brewery on 64th Avenue is Langley’s first and only local craft brewery. With six new brews and more to come, the facility, able to brew 1500 litres at one time, is a dream come true for any beer lover.

Trading Post’s founder and owner, Lance Verhoeff, a Trinity Western alum, plans to open a tasting room and brewery for February 13 and a brewpub soon to come in Fort Langley. For TWU students, this means good beer will be closer than ever, as well as a fresh new location for community, conversation, and relaxation.

The quality of the beer is indisputable. The recipes created by their brewmaster are not only creative but also simply delicious. Their Breakfast Stout, a dark, easy drinking stout brewed with Republica coffee beans, is sure to be a local favorite. Don’t miss out on a visit to Trading Post and bringing home a growler, or sitting down in their tasting room to enjoy a flight!
