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.........

I started making wine nearly two years ago. My initial kit was the result of winning a kit which got me hooked. Shortly afterwards and two kits later I discovered The Home Vintner, I purchased a couple of kits and was elated with the quality of wine that resulted. However I wasn't satisfied that Wine Expert was the best, my logic was that if I paid more for a kit I would get better wine. How wrong I was, I tried just about every kit out there and have come to the conclusion that Wine Expert has the best kit hands down. So needless to say I have come full circle and have decided that I am going to stick with Wine Expert Kits and enjoy the good life.
