The BC Ale Trail app rewards you for exploring British Columbia’s craft brewery destinations and the super, natural landscapes that surround them.

Within each Ale Trail you will find recommended itineraries to explore the respective destination – this includes an array of craft breweries, pubs, restaurants, cafes, outdoor activities, sightseeing, accommodations and more.

Create an Account
With a BC Ale Trail app account, you can collect points, and redeem them for goods or services at Rewards locations within our Ale Trails.

The Explore button takes you to the map of BC, which has pins indicating the location of our Ale Trails and places of interest where you can collect points. Clicking on each pin on the map gives you more information about that location.

Collect Points
Many locations with the BC Ale Trails are assigned a point value, which can be collected when you are within GPS range of a location and have a connection to the internet. Pushing the “Collect Points” button while physically visiting a location will add the location’s points to your point total. To keep earning points, explore more locations. You can track your point total on Your Account page.

Redeem Rewards
Once you collect enough points, those points can be redeemed for goods or services at BC Ale Trail Rewards locations, which are indicated in the app. Select the place where you would like to redeem your reward. Hitting the “Redeem Rewards” button while physically at a Rewards location will bring up a key pad for the place owner to enter a code to deduct points from your point total in exchange for your reward. You must have an internet connection in order to redeem points.

Share with Friends
Find a place you want to let others know about? The Share button on each location’s page allows you to share information about that place via your social media channels.

Always Drink Responsibly
Members of the BC Ale Trail are committed to ensuring their beers are promoted and enjoyed responsibly, by those adults who choose to consume them, for the continued prosperity of the craft beer industry in British Columbia.

No one should drink alcohol, even in moderation, before operating a motor vehicle or engaging in other activities that involve attention and skill or physical risk.

What’s New

Version 1.3.6

Fixed the point collection confirmation screen. Point collections had been working as expected, but you wouldn't see the notification confirmation. Enjoy!

Fun idea, poorly designed app

It takes forever to populate the list of breweries so you can get started, every, single, time you open it

Crap UI

Great idea but very poorly executed. The user interface is atrocious and the app refreshes data every single time you open it… such a pain. Not user friendly at all. No feedback when you check in so I have to go to my account and see if it registered, no ability to map view unless you click on a specific trail, start up load time takes a while, etc etc

Not great

This is not drunk friendly. What do I click on to get points.
