The pond had a fantastic time at their first meeting of the year, a brewery tour that was assisted by Vancouver Brewery Tours. With co-operative weather on a beautiful fall evening, we boarded a bus at Waterfront Station and were transported to three local breweries: Bomber Brewing, Off The Rail Brewing, and Big Rock Breweries.
At each location, we were provided both education by our representative from Vancouver Brewery Tours (which was good!), and a tasting flight of four of that brewery’s finest (which was better!). Everyone got to sample a multitude of styles and find what was best for their tastes. Finishing the tour at the beautiful Big Rock Breweries facility, we went retired to the dining room for a fantastic meal and some darn fine-form fellowship.
The feedback from this event is that it is a must-attend, much like our annual pool tournament and our annual craft beer tasting, both of which are coming up this spring. Be sure to join us next year!
