If you’re like us and enjoy drinking a few beers out at one of our local craft breweries, you’ve probably noticed just how many different breweries there are to choose from these days. From North Vancouver to East Van to Brewery Creek and beyond, Vancouver has seen over 15 new breweries open up in the last 4 years alone!
No self-guided brewery tour would be complete without paying homage to the oldest brewing district in Vancouver, and that is the Brewery Creek district located in Mount Pleasant. A convenient 10 minute cab ride from downtown Vancouver, Brewery Creek is not only the most accessible neighborhood to visit to lift a pint of craft beer, but it’s also steeped in history for those who want to witness where it all started.
So how did the area get the sexy title of Brewery Creek? Well, glad you asked! Back in the late 1800’s the area was the first suburb built outside the downtown core. A creek that used to flow where what is now Main St. was a popular source of fresh water for not only local businesses, but also to the emerging beer industry in Vancouver. Many new breweries set up shop on the shores of the creek to take advantage of the free supply of fresh water, and Brewery Creek was born.
While all of the old original breweries have since closed down, the area is once again attracting new craft breweries looking to be a part of Vancouver’s unique brewing history. The area currently has 8 craft breweries making it the 2nd largest brewing district in Vancouver behind Yeast Van.
So whether you hop on one of our Vancouver Brewery Tours or venture out on a self guided tour on foot, here is a handy listing of all the craft breweries in Brewery Creek!
