Exploring the Craft Breweries of North Vancouver – Updated February 2017
Unless you’ve lived under a rock for the last 4 years, you’ve probably heard of Vancouver’s exploding craft beer scene. Support for our local breweries continues to pour in and new breweries continue to open in neighborhoods like the famous Brewery Creek District, Yeast Van and even around the Downtown core with breweries like Postmark and Strathcona Beer Co. But did you know there is another neighborhood of craft breweries not far from these areas just waiting to be discovered? Like how about less than a 10 minute drive from Yeast Van? That’s right; currently with 6 North Vancouver craft breweries, the North Shore is exploding in beer popularity and we’d like to introduce you to what’s happening.
While famous North Vancouver brewpubs Taylor’s Crossing and Sailor Hagar’s have both closed their doors in recent years, a new generation of craft breweries has risen to meet rising demand for craft beer on the North Shore. Vancouver’s first nano-brewery Bridge Brewing opened first, followed by Deep Cove Brewers and Distillers with many more following suit in the years to come.
NEW for 2017 – And the good news keeps coming: North Vancouver is getting two new craft breweries in 2017! Lower Londsdale will see the opening of two new North Vancouver craft breweries with Streetcar Brewing and Beere Brewing Co. set to open their doors later this year.
So if you walk into a Yeast Van brewery and the entire staff know your name and prepare your favourite beer even before you get to the bar, we suggest you “Cross that Bridge!” and check out the craft breweries of North Vancouver for something new!
