Main Street Brewing Company bar is officially opened in Vancouver, BC

Author: Sergey Brusentsov

Main Street Brewing Company BC logoYesterday I was invited by Joe Wiebe to the opening of Main Street Brewing Company bar on 261 East 7th Avenue in Vancouver, BC.

So, guys, my congratulations to you – we have one more beer place in Vancouver with good choice of craft beer :)

The bar is open daily 11AM – 11PM and I hope we will see soon big logo of Main Street Brewing Company on this heritage building:

When I came there was already a lot of people.

So I decided to join them and took a beer set of cask ales in the appropriate place :)

I took my beer, seated and realized that there was a queue from the street to take a beer :)

A couple words of beer. I’ve tasted almost all available (except Pilsner):

  • Sessional IPA
  • Brown Ale
  • American Stout
  • Best Bitter
  • Dry Irish Stout
  • Belgian IPA

And I chose Dry Irish Stout for continue evening, because in humble opinion this stout with an perfect aroma and taste of coffee was the best one from the list :)

Some photos of brewery:

That’s all for now. Today I’m going to the Vancouver Craft Beer Week Opening night, so-o-o – there will be a lot of photos :-)
