Drinks of Walkerville

Drinks of Walkerville Walking Tour
On Saturday, April 13, join us for what is quickly becoming a patron favourite. This tour would definitely be one of Don Draper’s favourites as we start off at the Canadian Club Brand Centre as we take in the history of the building and brand before sampling the Mad Men character’s drink of choice, Canadian Club Whisky.

After learning all the about history full of famous (and infamous) characters that were big fans of the Canadian Club brand, we take a stroll through Olde Walkerville discovering it’s architecture as well as some well known and not so well known tales associated with the area.

We then will visit Walkerville Brewery and sample their beers while being walked through the facility and learning about the brewing process.

From beer we head over to The Willistead for another beverage treat.

By joining our tour you’ll receive an experience and some extras that you won’t be able to have on your own
