There has been a large shift in the last few years to eat locally produced goods and know where your food is coming from. This supports local businesses/farms, helps them flourish and keeps money in your own community. In this movement, the craft beer market has also grown as people want to drink local too. Trading Post Brewing is based out of Langley, BC and they have an eatery in Fort Langley. This post is about their eatery.
The restaurant is on Glover Road, right on Glover Road, right in the heart of historic Fort Langley.
The eatery does a great job of recognizing the history of the area and fusing it with modern touches. This is a canoe hanging above the bar area that is being used to support lanterns.
They make a variety of beers. Here they are on tap. I really like their bar area and the restaurant interior is very open and spacious.
It was a beautiful autumn day and we sat in their covered patio. The temperature was perfect with this fireplace and heaters.
Feel free to ask for a sample of the beer before ordering it. I tried their feature brew, a cranberry ale, and really enjoyed it but went with the beer Caesar. Locally produced Caesar mix is combined with their 1827 Helles Lager and topped with a pickle. That is the beer right beside the Caesar. It’s a pale lager that’s easy to drink.
The fried corn chips came with a creamy caramelized onion dip. We also added the salsa. You can’t beat fresh chips. They were nicely salted too.
The Trading Post Burger is a winner. It has a beef patty using BC beef and locally made bacon. The brioche bun was buttery and soft. Get the Parmesan fries for extra flavour. I loved the truffle mayo dip for them.
Brunch is served at the Trading Post on the weekends only from 10am-3:30pm. I got the TP Breakfast to try a little of everything. The homemade hashbrowns were well seasoned and I liked the thick cut bacon. The fried eggs were delicious. The toast came with a tasty homemade jam. I wanted to try all the brunch menu items.
Just like how wine is paired with food, beer can also be paired with food. Trading Post offers a delicious and fresh menu. I enjoyed their casual atmosphere and good eats. I look forward to checking out their brewery in Langley too. They have smaller food offerings there to have with their brews like cheese and meat boards.
