• Day 1

    Make your way to Burlington for a tasting and tour at Nickel Brook Brewery. Their intricate bottle designs and methodology of brewing will impress you as soon as you walk in the door. From IPAs, BPAs, lagers and porters, to fruity flavours, a gluten free option and more, they’re sure to have something to please your palate. Ask about seasonal flavours too, like the Pumpkin Porter and Wet Hop Pale Ale.

    For your next stop, travel north to enjoy a walk in the park and lunch at Lowville Bistro, or have your repast with a side of craft beer at north Burlington’s 5West Brewpub and Kitchen. Their signature craft beers include a blonde, IPA, wheat, red and lager that can be enjoyed with dishes using craft beer in the recipes and cooking process.

    After lunch, make your way to Burlington’s charming downtown and look for one-of-a-kind finds in the unique shops then stop in at one of the charming cafés or pubs for a refreshment. A tour of the Art Gallery of Burlington is also a must.

    Later, enjoy Burlington’s waterfront trail and scenic Lake Ontario views before checking in at the Waterfront Hotel and relax before dinner at Pepperwood Bistro, a local hot spot in Burlington. Along with contemporary bistro fare, they serve up their own on-premise brewed beers by the pint.

    After dinner, catch a show at the Burlington Performing Arts Centre.

  • Day 2

    Enjoy a buffet breakfast at the hotel before heading to Royal Botanical Gardens for the day. Explore the indoor and outdoor gardens, as well as the amazing, recently rejuvenated Rock Garden. Enjoy a meal at West Plains Bistro before making your way back home.
