Tour Length – 5 hours
We begin your Private PEI Craft Brewery Tour by heading East and crossing the Hillsborough River, one of three rivers that empties into Charlottetown Harbour. But only the Hillsborough River is a Heritage River, one of two on PEI. We travel on the Trans-Canada Highway and Stratford soon gives way to the countryside. We will see, beyond farms and fields, the Northumberland Strait on our right and farms, fields and woods on left. We will head due North on Rte. 3 passing St. Joachim’s Roman Catholic Church. One of only a several brick churches on PEI. Up first; Copper Bottom Brewing is Kings County, PEI’s first craft brewery and taproom. Featuring great beer and world class entertainment year-round, Copper Bottom acts as a community hub for locals & friends to come together for a cold pint overlooking the beautiful Montague River.

As your craft brewery tour bids a fond farewell to Copper Bottom Brewery and head back to Charlottetown, we will take a different route than we travelled in and head for Upstreet Craft Brewing. They started as most beer companies do — a few buds sitting around slugging back homebrew and talking big game of dropping it all to open a brewery of our own. Before we knew it we were in too deep to turn back and just kept going until we began to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Turns out it was the best idea we ever had.
Today, Upstreet is a B-Corp certified company with three locations across two provinces, a line of craft sodas, and beer on shelves in all four Atlantic provinces. They also have a food menu. We hope to continue to grow and refresh our communities. “We like to make beer, have fun, and refresh the community.”
Your Private Craft Brewery Tasting Tour leaves Upstreet and sets course for The Prince Edward Island Brewing Company. It was established in February 2012, and immediately an expansion of the brewery was undertaken. The company built a brand-new brewery at 96 Kensington Road in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, which opened in May of 2013. Working with international beer experts, the PEI Brewing Company has won multiple Gold, Silver and Bronze Medals at the Canadian Brewing Awards. The new state-of-the-art facility features the latest technology available in the brewing industry and has a food menu.
Your brewery tour’s final stop is Barnone Brewery & Hop Farm, a small Farm Brewery situated in the beautiful picturesque rolling hills of Rose Valley. Founded in 2011 by Father and Son team Hugh and Don Campbell. We grow a small hopyard with 4-6 hop varieties. We at Barnone believe in sharing the finest craft beer and experiences with you.
Some ask us is it Bar None? Or Barn One? We say both.

PEI Winery Tours wants all clients to be aware that some facilities will be unavailable at certain times of the year or have curtailed their hours to meet seasonal demands such as harvest, planting and more. This is unavoidable but normal. On the plus side it will leave time for a longer stay at another facility or for a different destination in its place.
Thank you for your understanding.
