Where to Shop in Vancouver: In Search of Craft Beer

Craft Beer Week in Vancouver, May 31-June 8 2103, has come and gone and with it all the bearded men who seem to have popped out of the woodwork for this highly-anticipated event. Either that or they’ve all shaved. If you haven’t heard about this week long beer drinking mecca-like event in Vancouver it’s really no surprise, because as far as I can tell most people who drink beer are men. If you look at the beer drinkers in any given restaurant or public house in town chances are ninety percent of them are those that bear facial hair. But if you’d like to even the gender divide, we have the scoop on where to shop in Vancouver.

Our lovely city has become positioned to be the next Portland, with six new breweries opening up in the Metro Vancouver area in 2013. Still, the culture around craft beer in Vancouver is geared towards men. That’s a shame because on a hot day, there is nothing better than a cold craft beer after being freshly waxed and pedicured. Women, stand up and be counted. Drinking craft beer on a hot summer day is where it’s at in Vancouver.

With so many brewing companies opening their doors and our minds to the endless possibilities of what craft beer is all about, the big brewers are getting a run for their money. People in Vancouver like to support small local businesses and at Vancouver Mom tracking them down is what we do best.
