An East Van Brewery Tour Our 5 Favs
Woodland Block is within a quick walk or bike ride from all the best parts of East Van, including its wide array of breweries. We’ve created a DIY brewery tour for you to discover East Van’s thriving craft beer scene and saved the best for last.
Starting off our brewery tour is Parallel 49, located on Triumph Street, where you can pair one of their 40+ craft taps with one of Chef Julianna’s latest creations from their street food menu.
Next stop on our tour, we have Bomber Brewing located at 1488 Adanac Street. Our personal favourite at Bomber Brewing is the Limoncito Salted Lime Lager. This unique brew is based on a traditional Mexican Chelada, which is a combination of beer, salt and lime.
Strange Fellows Brewing
Continuing the tour, we have Strange Fellows, located at 1345 Clark Drive. Strange Fellows is an East Vancouver brewery that celebrates the strange and extraordinary. Their beer is influenced by old world heritage and west coast innovation, which is why you will find their collection of vintage bottles. Other than their delicious craft beers and food, we loved the design of their t-shirts and just had to pick one up.
Storm Brewing on Commercial Drive is proud to be Vancouver’s longest running craft brewery. We loved seeing the history in the building and seeing how their craft beer selection is made, as their beer is unfiltered to ensure that it has more flavour and that it is naturally produced, without any chemical treatments, additives, or preservatives.
NO. 5 – Our Favourite
Superflux Beer Company
Lastly, we would like to shine light on our last stop, Superflux. Even before we took our first sip of Superflux, we were drawn in by the cool neon designs displayed on their cans. Our favourite beer at the moment is The Creamery’s “Pineapple Cheesecake.” If you haven’t already had the chance, you definitely have to try this local brewery and our personal favourite beer, The Creamery’s “Pineapple Cheesecake,” which will remind you of your favourite slice of cheesecake.
