What to do on the weekend?

Better days are coming. They called Saturday and Sunday. Hello weekend! No plans yet on what to do this weekend? I have got some tips for you.


There will be a UBC Halloween party tonight if you are not done with Halloween yet. If you are done with Halloween, maybe the paint competition ‘Battle of the Brush’ is something for you. There are also hockey games from the Giants and Canucks or a football game from the BC Lions for the sport lovers. The Craft Beer Festival is taking place in Coquitlam. Over 40 breweries will let you taste some of their best beers.

Saturday we will walk the Quarry Rock hike in Deep Cove. We enjoy the sunset at the end of the hike. Afterwards we will have some drinks, because Marvin will leave us after this weekend.

On Sunday we will go do the brewery tour on Granville Island. We will see how the beers are made and taste some tasters. We will meet in front of the brewery at 3:45pm. Have a nice weekend and I hope to see you somewhere this weekend!

Brewery Crawl Review

How did you like Vancouver’s crafted beer?
This weekend we went to East Vancouver for some beer tasting. However, we didn’t just go to one place to check out. We visited 5 breweries and made a “crawl” out of it!

First up was Odd Society which ironically was the odd one out since it’s the only distillery we visited amongst all the breweries. We were ordering drinks in their tasting room at around 3.30pm which felt a little weird because our group is used to getting their drink on after nightfall…well, usually.
After tasting the delicious cocktails, the initial weirdness was quickly overcome though. Approximately a half an hour later we participated in the tour of the facility which turned out to be surprisingly smaller than expected.

It didn’t take all too long and soon enough we walked over to the next location. On our arrival, we entered a brewery called Storm Brewing. It is a really interesting place with lots of crazy beer variations. There were inventions like Bloody Mary Pilsner and Black Plague Stout, but the absolute killer was the Imperial Flanders Sour Ale with an alcohol content of 11%!
Moving on, we visited Powell Street Craft Brewery. At this point our group was already getting pretty hammered which is why our stop after this one had to be a McDonalds!
With renewed strength we checked out Parallel 49 Brewing and followed by Doan’s Craft Brewing Company. The important thing here is that they have their own versions of German beer. Even Pretzels were being offered! Truly, a nostalgic piece from home.Finishing with our tasting here, we tried getting into one more brewery, but it was quite late already (10:30pm) and all breweries close at latest 11pm. Promptly, we decided to head downtown for a “nightcap” at Steamworks where we all ordered a Sangria before heading home.

Our tasting conclusion? Beer taste great anywhere! Especially after intaking large quantities. It was tons of fun and I’m happy so many of you joined us.

Hope to see you guys again soon.
