Join Tour Leader Ron Matsushita for the South Coast Breweries Tour – whet your visual senses and wet your taste buds at two craft breweries on the south coast, also known as the shores of Lake Erie. This 52 km, ‘B-C’ ride will take us along the beautiful West Street Welland Canal promenade to Clarence Street where we will cross the canal and head east. Outbound we will follow mainly roads and explore the shore of Lake Erie through historic Crystal Beach and Ridgeway before looping back and stopping at the Brimstone Brewing Company (around noon) with its spacious patio in Ridgeway at about 36 km. We will then backtrack 16 km to Port Colborne following back roads and the Friendship Trail (safety consideration after a beer tasting!). Just after crossing the Clarence Street bridge, we will stop at Breakwall Brewing Company (around 1:30). From there it is only about 1 km back to HH Knoll Lakeview Park.
Start Time: 10:30 am (weather permitting, breweries visits will be on patios)
Start Location: KLP1 – HH Knoll Lakeview Park 1, 49 Elm Street (Parking Lot – Elm Street south of Sugarloaf Street), Port Colborne
RSVP: Ron Matsushita (numbers needed for the breweries)
