Vancouver’s North Shore Craft Beer Week
| October 6 – 13

 

The inaugural craft beer week on Vancouver’s North Shore is now over! Thank you to all who attended an event, toured the North Shore breweries, and collected stamps in the VNSCBW passports. See you next year!

The North Shore has a rich history of craft brewing and was home to Canada’s first ever microbrewery – Horseshoe Bay Brewery in 1982. Now, we play host to six (soon to be eight in 2018!) craft breweries leading the way in tasty beers. Vancouver’s North Shore Craft Beer Week is our way of celebrating our rich history and bright future in beer!

The fun isn’t over! You beer enthusiasts should check out the North Shore Ale Trail for itinerary ideas.
