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.
