VBC Brewpub Tour – Dix Brewing

A beer tour of Vancouver, Canada

Brett in heaven
Beer geek heaven
While I was not impressed with Dix Brewing, Brett was in total beer man heaven. In fact, our notes from Dix is entitled “FEST!!!”

First, every beer was all hopes, his favorite. Then, the master brewer was just hanging out at the bar and Brett bonded with him over a long, very beer geek conversation. I swear they were even comparing hops grown on different sides of Mount Hood.

Then, the brewer went down to the kegs still cooking and brought us up sample tastes from the schwartzbeer not even for sale yet. Brett’s brown beer was his favorite of the trip, and with the poutin – fries with gravy – he was fat and happy.

I was content with a lighter beer than my normal choice, it being the only non-hoppy alternative. I did enjoy the Saint Louis ribs, and so we both rolled out of Dix, and ended our Vancouver Brewpub Tour, quite content.
