I stopped in at Granville Island Brewing in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. I tried a flight of four beers. I tried the False Creek Raspberry Ale, Maple Shack Cream Ale, Infamous IPA and Lions Summer Ale. I enjoyed the raspberry ale. I was hoping my non-beer-drinker wife would also enjoy but she did not like it as much as I did. I wanted more maple flavor in the maple cream ale – but I also realize most people don’t – so it’s me and not the beer. Infamous IPA is very nice. Lions Summer Ale had a nice fresh citrus flavor to it. I enjoyed all of the beers. Hope I get a chance to stop in again some day.
Steamworks Brewing Company, Vancouver, BC
I stopped in at Steamworks Brewing Company in Vancouver, British Columbia. I enjoyed dinner there and a flight of four beers with my wife and a coworker. The beers were delicious and so was the salad. We all enjoyed our food and drinks. The food service was really slow. But they comp-ed our salads. The Steak and Stilton Salad was really nice. I enjoyed their Kolsch, Marzen, Flagship IPA, and Smash. The Kolsch and Marzen were tasty but the Flagship IPA was my favorite. It’s fresh and hoppy but not overboard.
