VBC Brewpub Tour – Granville Island Brewing
A beer tour of Vancouver, Canada
On our Brewpub Roadtrip to Vancouver, Brett and I rolled into Granville Island Brewing a little early for the locals. Apparently, the pub doesn’t start serving until noon, so we bought tickets for the beer tour and went looking for brunch.|
Returning at the appointed hour, we went on the world’s shortest brewery tour. Granville only brews small batches at the brewpub, its major production facilities are elsewhere. Still, we had a fun viewing of mashers, hopers, and other assorted empty steel containers until the real fun began – beer tasting.
With six little beers in front of us, Brett and I shared tasting tips and tales with an assortment of Canadians and a token American couple. Quickly, the topic turned to politics and a favorite quote was heard:
Well said, my northern neighbour, and how I often wish we had some Canadian enlightenment in American politics. We did get enlightenment on several topics of note – cold temperatures being a favorite. Thankfully, I’ve been damn cold, so I could hold my own in the conversation.
With the beers gone, and yet more brewpubs to sample, Brett and I bid our farewell to the Granville Island Brewery and headed out for the next brewpub adventure: Dockside Restaurant.
