What You'll Get
DEAL FEATURED AND CHARGED IN US CURRENCY.
Multiple tastings, brunch, easy biking routes, and a helpful guide make this a top-rated sightseeing tour on TripAdvisor. See for yourself when you mosey over to a bike rental shop in downtown Vancouver to start your 3-hour tour. At the shop, your guide will provide you with a bicycle, helmet and lock. (You can also bring your own bicycle.) After a quick safety briefing, hop on your bike and follow your guide to begin your 3-hour tour of the city’s developing craft beer scene.
During a pleasant ride on mostly flat terrain, you’ll hit three breweries that are local favorites. Chat up the folks who run each establishment, and sample three beers (3 ounces each) paired with food at each place. You’ll also tour the facilities for a behind-the-scenes look at how the fizzy goodness is made.
For everyone’s safety and enjoyment, you’re limited to the sample tastings provided during the tour. Feel free to make purchases at any of the places you visit, perhaps investing in your own personal growler (a refillable glass container for beer to-go), all of which your guide will carry for you in a bike trailer.
In Railtown, visit the historic Settlement Building, housing a new collective of breweries and restaurants. Here, taste local brews and chow on brunch fare from the popular Belgard Kitchen.
Cycle on to East Vancouver to stop in a microbrewery that was founded by three friends who love hockey and good beer. The modest tasting room is a new hit in the city's craft beer scene.
A few easy hills later (you can walk your bike for this portion, if you prefer), you’ll wrap up your tour in Mount Pleasant, aptly coined Brewery Creek. Sip your final tastings inside the Vancouver Breweries Garage, one of the city's few surviving industrial heritage buildings dating back to 1913.
If you're still thirsty after bidding your guide farewell, haul out your growler and explore other breweries of Mount Pleasant like a local.
