So, i took some time off and did some soul searching. I come back with an greater understanding… I like beer… and I like it local. With this in mind i’m endeavouring to really take on the area i’m from the Tri-cities, furthermore I’m going to attempt to make this blog a little more free flowing and less rigid what that means remains to be seen but here we go.
STUFF TO CONSIDER:
TWIN SAILS the third brewery in the #BREWardINLET should open Labour Day with a focus on german beers. This should really add to the diversity of the beers available on Murray street.
YELLOW DOG is in the midst of its 1 year anniversary bringing out rare beers like strawberry and black currant Berliner weisse as well as a super secret white sour and a pineapple IPA see the Burrard and St. James well for availability.
The new Growler is out giving everyone a great FREE guide to Beer around BC despite them referring to us in the Tri-Cities with a bevy of backhanded compliments (did someone at the growler just finish reading a circa 2004 pick up artist book).
The latest Tri-Cities cask festival has occurred and was an unabashed success. A real standouts and something to get excited about was the Hefeweizen from Twin Sails. I only managed one sample but it stuck with me as one of the most interesting beers available.
Coquitlam to look into changing by-laws to be more welcoming to Breweries… another brewing district perhaps???
Whispers that breweries have contacted Port Coquitlam about possibly opening a brewery downtown (poco)… Please make t-shirts that read: “STRAIGHT OUTTA PO-COMPTON!”
A new Camra chapter?
ALSO for the first time… here is my face (my camera broke and i have no photos of beer)! Of course i had been drinking!
