Pedal pub brewery tours coming to Penticton this summer – Penticton News


Pedal for your next brew

A local entrepreneur will begin tours of Penticton’s craft beer scene this summer, launching a pedal-powered brewery tour experience.

Lucas Knoll, the owner of Penbrewtour, will pitch his business idea to city council on Tuesday, sharing details of the two-hour, 10-minute tours that include stops at three breweries for tastings.

Its report to the board will only share information about the business, as it does not require board approval or funding.

According to his presentation, the guide will be the “beer mentor and designated driver” of the “Pedal Pub” as the group sips, pours and pedals through this unique tour.

The vehicle contains 10 pedaling seats, seat belts, speakers and a bar-style construction while traveling at a top speed of around 15 kilometers per hour. No gas or diesel is used, just pedaling power.

Six of Penticton’s breweries are already on board for the venture.

“Tin Whistle is delighted to support Penticton Brew Tours by hosting tours on Saturdays and Sundays to our historic Cannery Trade Center Taproom. This pedal-powered tour is in line with our values ​​as BC’s first carbon neutral brewery,” they shared with Knoll.

The company will offer private tours, which cost $400 for 6-12 people, the social brewery tour, which costs $41 per person, and the special “Brunch and Beer” summer tour.

Routes will head along the downtown core of the city, beginning and ending at the Nanaimo parking lot. Then the vehicle will travel along Lakeshore Drive with stops between Highway 97 and Cannery.

The activity should start in June.
