The 3 Vancouver Craft Beers You Need to Try

The best brews from Vancouver


Just like its North American neighbor, Canada also has a growing craft beer scene. Of all the beers to try from Vancouver, we've handpicked the best craft beers from the city: 

Red Sky Alt Beer, Storm Brewing

The lager from Storm Brewing is something of a legend among Vancouver beer afficianadoes. Once brewmaster James Walton decided to stop brewing it a few years back, craft beer lovers were desperate for the beer to come back. Thanks to Vancouver's upcoming Craft Beer Week, Walton and the head ofVancouver Craft Beer Week, Graham With, have begun brewing it again as a collaboration beer. It's a German style, light lager that can convert "non beer drinkers into craft beer drinkers," says one craft brewer. Get excited. 

Belgian Black, Lighthouse Brewing Co.

A Belgian dark ale is rare to find, and a reward when it's done right. The Lighthouse Brewery's take on it takes the yeast of Belgian ales and big flavors of roastiness, caramel malts, and hops. What makes it special? A sea-salt and hay-like flavors from the yeast, with the addition of dark fruits and smoke in the aftertaste. This is one beer not to miss. 

East Side Bitter, R&B Brewing 

We love a good Extra Special Bitter brew (especially from its southern brewery friend, Redhook Brewery). This (recently bottled) take on it from R&B is unlike most ESBs; the malts balances out a nice combination of Southwestern and North American hops added in at the end of the brewing process.
