In 1985, when Big Rock Brewery was established, beer was either ‘lager A’ or ‘lager B’. They challenged the status quo by introducing three bold, European-inspired beers. And they continue to raise the bar to this day; they currently brew ten signature beers, eight seasonal, four ciders and custom-crafted private labels at their locations in Vancouver, Calgary, and Toronto.  Their beer is handcrafted in a high-volume world and they’re proud of it.

Red Truck Beer Company prides itself on producing high quality, simple beer: no preservatives, no pasteurization, and no compromises. Take one of their behind-the-scenes tours and you’ll learn all about their slow brewing process (because “you can’t rush perfection”) and how Red Truck is committed to helping the environment: spent grain is used to feed local animals, and other byproducts are properly disposed of. So you can always enjoy a Red Truck beverage with a green conscience.

What do you get when you bring a little South America to the heart of East Vancouver? You get the Andina Brewing Company. Their beer has a unique South America taste thanks to Patagonian Malt from the south of Chile. Andina is the first brewery in Canada to use the world class malt that grows in the ideal climate conditions and soils. An added bonus? Kids are allowed in the Tasting Lounge (when accompanied by an adult).

Since 2015, Off the Rail Brewing has focused on mouth-watering flavours and different beer styles. Each small batch of craft beer builds upon their classic recipes, and then they add playful twists with new varieties of hops and yeast as they become available. So you’ll find something new every time you visit!
