Golden Views and Epic Brews Fall tasting passport launches in Cranbrook and Kimberley Cranbrook B.C. – September 13, 2022


Very few climatic moods are as dramatic as Autumn’s golden larches, which transform Kootenay landscapes from forest green to honey-toned gold before grudgingly relinquishing their needles to the frosty earth. From late September through November, Mother Nature performs a spectacular encore to summer, coaxing locals out of their homes and into the rugged wild where they paddle calm waters against the backdrop of golden views, hike trails hugged in amber warmth, and take long drives down windy roads through the caramel-kissed countryside.


After a day on the river, the trails or the links, a refreshing local pint is a popular way to finish a fall day.  This season Cranbrook and Kimberley Tourism have partnered with The BC Ale Trail and local breweries and restaurants to launch the Golden Views and Epic Brews tasting passport. From September 16 - October 16, 2022, visit any of the participating businesses listed below and have your passport stamped with purchase. Once you have collected unique stamps from six different locations, hand in the passport at a local visitor centre to receive a custom enamel mug and get entered in the draw for a chance to win the Grand Prize package, a 2-night stay at the Prestige Rocky Mountain Resort, including a helicopter ride and Picnic on the Peak with The Heid Out and Fisher Peak Brewing Company.
