Aug 19: East of East Van Tap Takeover

Smiths Pub, Victoria, BC; 17:00–02:00

Dageraad, Steamworks and Steel & Oak are combining forces for one heck of a tasty Tap Takeover.

Named after an amazing collab beer from Burnaby’s finest brewers, Steamworks and Dageraad, we present you with our latest tap takeover.

While everyone talks about all the great breweries in East Van, if you continue heading east, you’ll find Steamworks and Dageraad repping Burnaby, with Steel & Oak making the goods in New Westminster.

All three of these fine breweries will be taking over all our taps for this evening of good cheer, with some rarities and solid brews.

We’ll post the list once everything is confirmed. Our fingers are crossed for a couple of things to be ready in time for this event.
