Vancouver Craft Beer Week - May 10-16
Posted May 10th, 2010 - 6:45 pm by from Montreal, Canada (Permalink)
Canada's first ever craft beer week kicks off today with the mayor himself tapping the first cask. Some events are sold out already, but there are still quite a few great events available.

Some recommendations:

Homebrew Awards - Tues May 11
Come meet the next generation of craft brewers. Hosted at R&B Brewery. My connections tell me that details not listed on the site will definitely make it worth your while. At $15, this is one of the best values of the week.

Four Beers and a Funeral Brewpub Crawl - Sat May 15
Our beloved Dix Brewpub is closing soon, so they are pulling out all stops to honor this loss. A funeral procession will be led between brewpubs by a 7 foot tall priest, stilt walkers and the famous Carnival Band and reaching the final destination by Aquabus. I expect this will get pretty crazy!

There's also a few FREE events for those short of cash, including brewery tours at R&B every day this week.

Hope to see some of you there!
