 Vancouver and Craft: Perfect Pair

Vancouver is more than just stunning landscapes and a thriving cultural scene—there’s a craft beer revolution that rivals any in the world, and it’s leaving beer enthusiasts buzzing with excitement. Vancouver's craft beer scene has delights for both seasoned connoisseurs and newcomers eager to explore the world of artisanal brewing.

Coastal Beauty

Nestled between the Pacific Ocean and the towering Coast Mountains, Vancouver provides an ideal backdrop for a craft beer culture that combines tradition with innovation. Many breweries in the area draw inspiration from the region's natural beauty, crafting beers that reflect the unique character of the West Coast.


Since 1983

You can’t talk about Vancouver's craft beer scene without mentioning the local favourites that have become synonymous with the city's brewing excellence. Places like Parallel 49, East Vancouver Brewing, and Steamworks have become staples for locals and tourists alike, offering a wide range of brews that cater to every palate. They serve up a diverse selection of beers, from hop-forward IPAs to rich stouts that push the boundaries of flavour, and rotating tap lists showcases the creativity and skill of our brewers.

Creativity and Innovation 

What sets Vancouver's craft beer scene apart is the continuous pursuit of innovation. Local breweries are not afraid to experiment with flavours, pushing the boundaries of traditional brewing to create unique and unforgettable beer experiences. Sour ales infused with locally sourced fruits, barrel-aged creations that develop complexity over time, amazing lagers, and experimental brews that challenge the palate are just a few examples of the innovative spirit that defines Vancouver's craft beer landscape.


Beyond the beer itself, Vancouver's craft breweries foster a sense of community and collaboration. Many establishments collaborate with local artists for label designs, host events that bring people together, and actively participate in sustainability initiatives. The emphasis on community engagement creates a welcoming atmosphere for beer enthusiasts to share their passion and connect with like-minded individuals.
