Visit the best Breweries Vancouver has to offer
Take in some of the sights of Vancouver while sampling the best craft beers Vancouver's burgeoning brewery scene has to offer.
We'll rent bikes and loop around Vancouver's lower Eastside taking in some hand picked breweries and stopping for lunch/dinner, snacks and coffee along the way.
Depending on your desired pace, we can visit between 5 to 10 breweries over the day.
A combination of public transportation and walking is also an option for those not wanting to cycle.
DISCLAIMER - I am gluten free, so I'm afraid I won't be able to recommend which beers are the tastiest, but I know all the best craft breweries in town and have hand picked a great selection for you to sample.
This is an example of the cycling version of the tour but can be adapted for public transport/walking:
Short walk to bike rental
20 min cycle to East Vancouver through Gastown, passing BC Place and Rogers Arena hockey stadium
Visit up to 4 breweries within walking or short cycle ride of each other. Tastings, tastings, tastings!
10 min cycle to another brewery / Urban Winery for our LUNCH STOP
Hop across the road for coffee & cake at a local cafe
15 minutes cycle ride to Main Street Area
--- More Tastings---
Visit at least two more breweries
20 mins cycle to Bike Rental Drop off, depending on time and your appetite we can stop off at one of various locations for food, coffee or more drinks en route

Estimated Local Cash Needed
70 Canadian Dollar (CAD) - This is an estimate for food & beverage costs, dependent on your appetite! You'll pay at each location.
Plus $30 per person bike rental (if biking).
Tasting fees, general food & beverage fees must be met by the client
Transport: either Bike rental or public transport should, this will be decided by you before the tour.
I do not currently have a Canadian commercial driver's license so am unable to drive you myself but can arrange for transport for us.
I do not currently offer "shore excursions" as a result.
