Visiting the Deep Cove Brewers and Distillers as they prepare to get the brewery up and running. While the crew at Deep Cove is still awaiting their opening day on August 23rd, 2013 the article posted on the brewery back in June was one of the most read over the past year. If you missed out is time that you read about the great beer that is just around the corner in North Vancouver.
The Fat Bike Beer Run was a hugely successful story written about making a trip to the Deep Cove Brewery with a Growler Cage on a Norco Bigfoot Fatbike. This article has been seen around the world and the video has been watched in excess of 55,000 times in less than two weeks. If you missed it, you need to watch The Fat Bike Beer Run.
Another top article was the North Shore Growler. A 10km running race where competitors carried two 1.89l growlers filled with water for the full distance. Runners were rewarded with free beer for a month from the generous team at Bridge Brewing Company. If you are looking for some insider information on how to prepare for next year’s event be sure to read about the North Shore Growler.
The most viewed beer review over the past year has been the Central City Imperial IPA for Autism. Not only is this an amazing beer but $5 from each bottle was donated towards research relating to Autism. Kudos to Central City Brewing on creating a delicious beer and also for raising money towards a great Cause.

Shortly behind Central City’s Imperial IPA in view count was Townsite Brewing’s Perfect Storm Oatmeal Stout.This deliciously dark beer was concocted by Powell River BC’s Townsite Brewing and is absolutely delicious. If you have not tried this beer you need to head to your local craft beer retailer and pick up a bottle of the Townsite Brewing Perfect Storm Oatmeal Stout!
