Italian Heritage Month and Vancouver Craft Beer Week both take place in June, so we thought it would be the perfect time to bring back our Little Italy tour once again! We led an incredibly successful (and delicious) food and brewery tour of Little Italy for this year’s Dine Out Vancouver – the city’s restaurant and food festival put on by Tourism Vancouver.
We have handpicked a few of our favourite Italian owned and operated businesses in East Van for this delectable brewery tour taking place on Thursday June 6th during Vancouver Craft Beer Week. Starting out at the award winning Luppolo Brewing Company where it’s all about craft beer and the Italian values of quality, craftsmanship, community and family. Your journey continues into the heart of Little Italy on Commercial Drive to visit the deli legends at La Grotta del Formaggio. Scrumptious meats, cheeses and olives will be waiting for you in Vancouver’s coolest market and home of the best sandwich in town. Next up, we slow the pace down at the renowned Marcello’s Ristorante & Pizzeria for a masterfully handmade meal of fresh pasta, gnocchi or pizza along with a drink. Finally, a sweet surprise at La Dolce Amore to end a wonderful evening on the town spent with new friends and old. Salute!
What’s included? You’ll enjoy full transportation aboard the Vancouver Brewery Tours van. Our knowledgeable and fun tour guide will take you behind the scenes at Luppolo Brewing Co. for some brewing 101 and a full flight of beer before moving on to the culinary stops to enjoy your tasty treats. Seats are $89.99+tax.
Each Italian Brewery and Culinary Tour is approximately 3.5 hours long and departs from inside Waterfront Station in downtown Vancouver. Please meet at 3:45pm as tours leave promptly on time. Your tour guide will meet you there, blue clipboard in hand, near the entrance of Starbucks and Small Business BC located inside the station.
