Years ago, Derrick and Donna Smith began brewing a quartet of ales together, the steaming vats of barley filling their small facility with steam. They quickly gained the attention of beer drinkers and critics and expanded into a 10,000-square-foot space. The brewery now includes a renovated tasting room featuring the latest creations on tap, as well as a growler station. There, they invite you to check out new craft brews such as Gold Medal Winning Peanut Butter Stout, Cold Brew: A bourbon tea infused Red ale, and Rocket Man Pale Ale. Derrick and Donna offer clients a peek inside their operation with tours and tastings.
From the beginning, Boundary Bay Brewery knew they wanted to make the kinds of beers that they liked to drink: big, bold Northwest brews. They began producing award-winning handcrafted beers and quickly became a place where the locals love to go. They believe strongly in local economy and in keeping their community vibrant and healthy. To that end, Boundary Bay Brewery partner with at least 15 local suppliers/farmers to create a menu of fun, fresh Northwest pub food and help support over 100 local non-profits annually.
Located in a restored historic warehouse, the brewery opened in 1995 with the goal of brewing bold, flavorful beers. It quickly became popular with locals, who now make use of the space year-round. During the summer, crowds come out to dine on the deck or drink light, refreshing brews in the beer garden. Seven taps are devoted to house brews that are always on tap, while the others are for seasonal brews, brewing experiments like single hop ales and small batch beers that are only brewed rarely. Two cask beers are always available as well. When the weather grows cold, beers like Cabin Fever, a strong-brewed winter ale, rise in popularity and no table seems to lack plates of locally caught sockeye salmon or nachos with housemade salsa and a plethora of additional ingredients from the family-friendly bistro. Although the craft brewery's offerings are representative of the Northwest, the brews have amassed more than 100 impressive awards from festivals and competitions across the country.

The magic bean that sprouted into Whiskey Ridge Brewing was a Christmas gift that Francine Hatley gave to her husband, Jack. That gift: a homebrewing kit that Jack set up in his garage. Nearly a decade later, that garage operation has expanded into Darrington's old City Hall, has come to involve Jack's entire family, and has churned out delicious microbrews such as the Henrietta Chocolate Porter and the Tarheel Stomp.
Part brewery, part gastropub, part beer store. Big Rock Urban Brewery and Eatery's massive Vancouver space may be divided into three distinct sections, but every one is focused on offering the best craft beer possible. That starts with the beer's locally inspired recipes, which use as many fresh lower-mainland ingredients as possible and are only available in British Columbia.
Here's a quick look at some of the beers you might find on draft at Big Rock Urban:
Hollow Tree Pacific Northwest Red Ale: Inspired by the area's majestic red cedars, this balanced session ale took home first place from the 2015 BC Beer Awards (5.8% ABV)
Midnight Rhapsody Dark Ale: This dark-amber porter finishes smooth with plenty of roasted-malt flavor and hints of raspberry (5.5% ABV)
Citradelic Single Hop IPA: Featuring solely citra hops, this smooth, bitter IPA features citrus notes and a dry finish (6.0% ABV)
Focusing on the more than 100 breweries, distilleries, and wineries in British Columbia, Canadian Craft Tours is the ultimate guide to what to drink in Vancouver and Victoria. Every day of the week, a knowledgeable guide sets out with a group to explore the area's drinking establishments, leading tour takers to at least three stops. At each locale, guests get a behind-the-stills look at production and samples of the potent potables. When the tour is over, everyone also gets a mini growler of their favorite libation to take home.
