On Throwback Thursday, I’m looking back on a trip to Vancouver in October 2015 and my visit to Green Leaf Brewing Company. So many beers, so little time to blog…
VANCOUVER, October 2015 — During an afternoon break from meetings, I decided to take the SeaBus from downtown Vancouver to the North Shore for a visit to the Lonsdale Quay Market, home of Green Leaf Brewing Company. The ferry ride was a quick 12-minute harbor hop, and as soon as I left the ferry terminal and turned the corner to the market, there it was!
Beers Sampled: There were four beers on tap, so I ordered the four-beer sampler rack.
I was most impressed with: The setting! I enjoyed my sampler rack in the small biergarten in front of the brewpub view a beautiful view of the waterfront. The beers were perfectly suited for a warm, leisurely afternoon of harbor- and people-watching. Acid Trip was a light and fruity Berliner-Weiss, while Pie Hole Pale Ale was a refreshing and hoppy Pale. My favorite beer was Bitter Leaf IPA, a classic West Coast IPA. I enjoyed the sun, view, and IPA so much that I had a pint after my sampler.
And oh by the way: I loved the chalkboard art inside Green Leaf!
