If you love beer and patio vibes for summer then you have come to the right article.
It wasn’t long ago that when you went to the liquor store or your local pub they had mostly domestic beers and 1 or 2 craft beers, nowadays the majority of establishments have about 50% domestic and 50% craft beers.
Gone are the days of the “wine snob” long since replaced with the “beer snob” as local craft micro breweries truly test the limits of what is possible with beer, adding infusions of essential oils, peppers, flavours, and so much more.
If you live nearby Lonsdale Quay or somewhat close to Waterfront Centre in downtown Vancouver, you can take advantage of the quickly developing local beer seen in North Vancouver by visiting the Lower Lonsdale area nearby the Seabus terminal.
With a few new local beer spots recently opened and a few more slated to open later this year, there is no shortage of local experiences for foodies who happen to love cold beer.
