Canada’s first ever craft brewery – Horseshoe Bay Brewery opened in West Vancouver in 1982. Now, 35 years later Vancouver’s North Shore Tourism Association is inviting you to celebrate this history and the five (soon to be seven!) microbreweries that now exist in North Vancouver at the first ever Vancouver’s North Shore Craft Beer Week this October 6-13.
You’ll get to enjoy cask nights, guided tours, live music, Brewmaster’s Dinners, and, of course, beers from the participating North Van craft breweries which include: Beere Brewing Co, Black
Kettle Brewing Company, Bridge Brewing Co, Deep Cove Brewers and Distillers, and Hearthstone Brewery.
Guests can be rewarded for their beer-guzzling also with the launch of the Vancouver’s North Shore Craft Beer Week Passport. For a limited time only guests can pick up a passport at participating breweries and North Shore hotels. They can then get them stamped as they travel on their craft beer journey. The passport can then be surrendered at the breweries to be entered in a prize draw that includes prizes like hotel stays, Capilano Suspension Bridge passes, filled growlers, and so much more.
Passports must be deposited at participating breweries or the North Vancouver
Visitor Centre by October 30 to be included in the prize draw.
