Bacon and ale are a combination made in heaven, which is also a pretty good way to describe our picturesque town.
Enjoy Stratford’s Bacon & Ale Trail in every season. This self-guided tour introduces you to our pork and brewing history.
With each trail purchase, you get to choose which five stops, out of the participating businesses, to redeem your five vouchers for a bacon or ale delight on your self-guided tour (click here for trail participants, map, trail offerings and hours). The cost for 5 vouchers is $39.55 (including HST) – note that you may use one voucher per stop. The Bacon & Ale Trail is available year-round.
Bacon & Ale Trails are available for purchase the same day you are completing the trail in downtown Stratford at Destination Stratford, 47 Downie Street; Bradshaws, 129 Ontario Street; Small-Mart, 119 Ontario Street; and Werk Shop, 111 Ontario Street. Vouchers do not expire and can be used over multiple days.
All locations to purchase trails and the majority of trail stops will be closed February 20th.
Every stop is unique and features a different bacon and/or ale item to enjoy. With many locations to choose from, you may need to plan your route in advance (or buy another pass which includes 5 more vouchers). And, you also get to meet the makers who craft these indulgences.
Bacon & Ale Trail gift certificates are available online, to be used at a later date, by the gift recipient. BEFORE the recipient embarks on the Trail, they need to exchange their gift certificate for 5 vouchers for their self-guided tour at either Destination Stratford, 47 Downie Street; Bradshaws , 129 Ontario Street; Small-Mart , 119 Ontario Street; or Werk Shop , 111 Ontario Street.
