Granville Island Brewery Tour!
Posted by Airdrie Store - Pat Morrison - full access, April 15th, 2011 | 1 Comment
This past weekend I was in Vancouver to visit my son, Brent and future daughter-in-law, Sara! On Sunday afternoon we took the ferry across to Granville Island to visit the market and many shops and mainly to take a tour of Granville Island Brewery. It is an excellent little microbrewery and a fact-filled fun tour. Amongst the tastings, my personal favourite was the Kitsilano Maple Cream Ale -- caramel malt, light hop bitterness with a hint of pure Canadian Maple Syrup! I liked it so much that I brought a 6-pack home to share with Paul. Coincidentally, he had been out to a pub in Calgary that same weekend and discovered a Maple Amber Ale from a microbrewery in Edmonton. We are going to try each one and do a comparison - Blog to follow!
Granville Island Brewery also has a Limited Release Imperial Pale Ale ( VERY hoppy ! ) & we plan on sitting this side by side with Calgary's own Wild Rose Brewery's Limited Release Imperial Pale Ale, and see which one we prefer. Again - Blog to follow !!
We are thinking of trying our hand at brewing a Maple Ale, but until we compare the two, not sure if we will lean towards the Barons Amber Ale as our base or the Barons Canadian Golden Ale.........
