Moffat Station Brewery starts beer shuttle
All too often, the biggest obstacle to a night out in the Fraser Valley is getting home safely.
With the Town of Winter Park’s goal of a year-round transit system still a little ways off, one Winter Park business is stepping up to provide its patrons with a safe and reliable ride home.
The Moffat Station Restaurant and Brewery at Winter Park Mountain Lodge is now offering a nightly beer shuttle.
The 12-person “Moffat Mobile” departs hourly from the restaurant from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m. Patrons can catch the shuttle on the Winter Park Lift route along U.S. Highway 40 from Winter Park to Fraser.
The shuttle does not serve Meadow Ridge.
The idea for the shuttle was something Moffat Station has been hearing from regulars for a while now, said Daniel Benton with Stout Street Hospitality, which manages Winter Park Mountain Lodge.
“We decided to do that to keep our regulars happy, but we thought it would be something really cool to drive some new regulars to the business,” Benton said.
The lodge kicked off the service around mid-May on weekends, Benton said.
Now, service is ramped up to seven days a week.
Rides are free, though the Moffat Mobile offers a special loyalty program, Benton said.
For $35, patrons can purchase a small flag that, when waved at a driver from any point along the shuttle’s route, will get them picked up – even if they’re not at a bus stop.
The shuttle’s tentative end date is Labor Day, Benton said, though that could change.
“We’ve even talked about continuing it through the winter if it’s something that drives business and it’s something that people enjoy,” he said.
Moffat Station features nine microbrews, as well as special promotions like its growler program and a mug club that includes $2 micro-brews for life.
