Vancouver Craft Brew Cruise – Craft Beer On The Big Blue Watery Road
Craft Beer events used to involve going to your local community center and standing around tasting the likes of local craft brewery fare. With the explosion of craft beer fanaticism and the plethora of event options at your fingertips you can now attend a variety of events that go above and beyond creating a truly unique experience. One such event is the Vancouver Craft Brew Cruise. Why stand in a stuffy, dark room when you can let your hair down into the wind cruising Vancouver Harbour with 200+ friends?
Loading the boat in False Creek we can only assume that each person had a particular song in mind and was singing along in silent unison, “I’m on a boat and, it’s goin’ fast and, I got a nautical themed
pashmina afghan 4oz beer glass.”
Maybe that was just me, but either way, it was somewhat suiting. Once on board there were two floors worth of craft beer to be sampled and a third, rooftop level, perfect for sipping the refreshing taste of the 15 or so BC craft breweries participating. Sun shining, ocean breeze blowing and craft beer pouring the Vancouver Craft Beer Cruise proved to be a great experience for all.
The three hour journey took attendees from False Creek out into Vancouver Harbour as far as Ambleside Beach in West Vancouver. The cruise beneath Vancouver’s inner-city bridges, past Granville Island and beyond Stanley Park was the perfect mix of stunning scenery and doing something unique, and beer focussed, on a sunny Vancouver weekend.
