After the exhilaration that is skydiving, take some time to relax for lunch at Barley Station Brewpub. Part of Shuswap Lake Brewing Company, this upscale pub brews all their own beers. In fact, the brewery recently won a gold medal at the Canadian Brewing awards and The Barley Station Brew Pub is the first brewpub in the North Okanagan with an onsite brewery that produces small batches of craft beer with no preservatives or chemicals added! This is the spot for some of the best beer in the Shuswap. By drinking the house-made brew, you are greatly reducing your impact on the environment. The beer only has to travel 50 feet to your table, so feel good about doing your part to save the environment – one beer at a time.
The design of the restaurant mimics the old railway station with a new and clean decor but still has the vintage feel. Atmosphere is kicked back casual and will get loud if it is crowded – But by no means should that steer you in the other direction, the menu has an excellent selection and something for everyone with large portion sizes and great value; you will not be disappointed!
So to go with a great brew make sure to grab some traditional, house made, delicious pub fare before you head out for an afternoon of golf! Amazing food and beer specials at Barley Station can be found exclusively on the free GetintheLoop app – Check them out HERE.

Finally, after all the excitement of the day, catch some good eats and live music at Off The Beat Pub! This pub is known as one of the best live music and comedy venues in the Shuswap. Originally, a nightclub that hosted live music and shows was right across a parking lot from a pub that also hosted live music and shows. After years of competition, the two owners had an idea. Why not combine the two hotspots and give the Shuswap something special?
They host Karaoke night, live jam sessions, bring in live bands and host events throughout the year! It really brings something to the Salmon Arm community and you can check out their website and facebook page to see upcoming events to stay in the Loop plus they also have pool tables – the only public tables in Salmon Arm are at Off The Beat. Big city style with a small town attitude is what you’ll find at Off The Beat.
