Big Lebowki Tour

The DUDE is back! Big Lebowski Brewery and Bowling Tour

Lebowski-themed Tour Includes Custom Beer Samples, Costume and Trivia Contests at Local Breweries and Bowling at Grandview Lanes

Ever wanted to wear your housecoat in public? Thanks to Vancouver Brewery Tours, fans of the cult classic movie The Big Lebowski will get their chance at the 2nd annual Big Lebowski Brewery and Bowling Tour.

  • Saturday May 6th
  • 11.30am to 3.30pm
  • $79.99pp plus GST

Tour includes Lebowski-inspired craft beers, or “oat sodas” at each brewery stop. Beginning at Callister Brewing, an all new trivia contest will be held in the brewery that will separate the little Lebowskis from the big Lebowskis. Next on down the line is Storm Brewing for the judging of the costume contest and more Lebowski inspired ales. The tour will end at Grandview Lanes Bowling Centre, where participants better hope their toes don’t go “over the line” in their bid to strike it big as the day’s bowling champ.
