April 20: The Beers of Brewers Row Tasting

Vessel Liquor, Victoria, BC; 18:30–20:00 PST

Back in 2014 when Yellow Dog Brewing and Moody Ales opened within a few blocks of each other on Murray Street in Port Moody, it was an interesting coincidence. Then, a year later, Twin Sails Brewing opened almost right next door to Yellow Dog. Finally, last summer, the Parkside Brewery opened there as well, and Brewers Row was created. It’s an ideal beer-trip via SkyTrain from Vancouver, but if you can’t make it over there in person, we have you covered.

This month Joe will take participants on a virtual tour of Brewers Row. We will taste two beers from each of these great breweries while Joe tells stories about each of them and talks about the beers. It will be a lively, entertaining and informative evening, as always.
