Northyards Cider Co.
Before Squamish was known for its amazing outdoor activities, it was a logging town on the coast of BC. The railway that ran through the Northyards connected it with the rest of Canada.
Those days are long gone but the Northyards Cider Co. has grown out of the memories of the old railroad. Their cider, crafted from local BC apples, is well-known in Squamish but it’s only the beginning. They’ve got a great selection of unique food on the menu that pairs great with their craft ciders to make it one of the best places to eat in Squamish.
