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

 

Welcome to the inaugural craft beer week on Vancouver’s North Shore! This year, we toast the North Shore’s legendary past in brewing and our bright future with a week of celebrations.

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 five (soon to be seven!) craft breweries leading the way in tasty beers.

Try special casks, attend fun events, and learn more about North Shore beers while collecting stamps on our North Shore Ale Trail Map and posting on your socials with #VNSCBW and to win great prizes!
