Part 3 of my beer travelogue of my trip to Vancouver…
On my five-day business trip to Vancouver, I was spoiled by an amazing view of the city and harbor from the balcony of my room on the 10th floor of the Westin Bayshore. The panorama:
Only complaint about the room: the small fridge didn’t come stocked with beer. The balcony view deserved to be enjoyed with a cold brew, so I picked up a mixed 12-pack from Granville Island Brewing for the room.
- Cypress Honey Lager, an easy-drinking Lager brewed with pure local honey.
- English Bay Pale Ale, a smooth West Coast Pale Ale.
- Island Lager, a clean and refreshing Lager.
- Robson St. Hefeweizen, a traditional unfiltered Wheat Ale.
Granville Island Brewing opened in 1984 as Canada’s first microbrewery. I wish I had taken the time to visit the brewery for a tour and tasting like my friend and co-worker Matt, who stayed out in Vancouver for a few days after our meeting. He was nice enough to bring me back a souvenir glass from the brewery – thanks Matt!
I’ve enjoyed thinking about my phenomenal trip to Vancouver over my last three blog posts. Can’t wait to go back!
