If I could give this brewery a nick name it would be Mr. Consistent. With consistently fantastic beers and new seasonal that we always look forward to picking up there is something here for everyone.
Bridge brewing is located on the north shore less than 15 minutes from downtown Vancouver. Well worth the drive if you want to do one brewery although you are probably better off doing 3 on a tour with Canadian Craft Tours.
I normally gravitate towards IPA's so when my wife brought home this North Vancouver Craft Beer from Bridge Brewing I did not know what to expect.
The fact that it is called Lemon Gin Saison, it sounded like a "Girly" drink from the get go... Boy was I wrong.
First of all I was sold on the fact that it was a collaboration between Tap & Barrel and Bridge (This screams support local, and you know quite a bit of R&D went into this beverage). The local Vancouver craft brewery collaborations over the past couple of seasons have produced some fantastic 4 & 5 start brews.
This seasonal has hints of lemon, peppercorn, gin, honey and as it states on the back is "Super drinkable". It's the gin/ hefeweizen version of a "Shandy".
The only downside of this beer, was that my wife wouldn't keep sneaking tasters when she normally sticks to the wine and G&T's.

Here are 5 tips to help make sure your party goes off without a hitch.
Hey Calgary! There is a tasty new product released just in time for summer which appears to have finally arrived !
Founded in 2018 by business partners Faye Warrington and Marty Lastiwka Skunkworks began distilling their moonshine in 2019 with sugar beets from just down the street in Taber, Alberta. Moonshine, which is responsible for the creation of Nascar, is called Moonshine because it used to be made illegally at night and the moon would shine on the liquid, however, Skunkworks is 100% legal and their new canned Moonshine Mule is 100% delicious. It is a powerfully-gingery-spicy mule by design and the dominant tasting note would be the spice from the kilograms of fresh ginger infused in their own ginger simple syrup, along with an undertone of caramel …and of course lime.
Although the Moonshine Mule is not currently found on store shelves, it will be soon. In the meantime, you can always request a Canadian Craft Distillery tour to stop by and visit Faye and Marty at their distillery (SW Calgary near the Barley Belt), which houses a tasting room, and a jam/rehearsal/recording space for musicians.
