Although famed as a wine destination, the Thompson Okanagan also offers a great selection of locally produced beers, ciders and spirits.

Tree Brewing and Crannog Ales are some of the breweries offering handcrafted ales and lagers (and tours), while brewpubs serve selections of cold, local brews and food. The Okanagan Fest-of-Ale beer festival is a great place to sample them all.

Local cideries take advantage of the abundant Okanagan apple harvest. Cool off in summer with refreshing ciders from Orchard Hill Estate Cidery or Raven Ridge Cidery.

The region's distilleries also use fresh fruit to produce rich fruit liqueurs, eaux de vies (fruit brandies) – even absinthe. Sample a few at Okanagan Spirits, a craft distillery that was awarded the Master-Class Distillery title at the World Spirits Awards (2010).

Inspiration led myself, Kaylan Madeira, and my wonderful other half, Jo Schneider, to start our own small-batch, hand-crafted artisan cider. Fairview Cider is crafted using a unique blend of organic French and English cider apples, grown straight from our orchard in Cawston, BC.

From orchard to glass our apple ciders Pippin and Kingston are created with a blend of dessert and traditional cider apples. Our Blush cider is our fun take on traditional cider blended with organic Santa Rosa Plums. Our tasting room also features our Sparkling Apple perfect for sitting in our picnic area with the kids.
