Some of our club had the pleasure of checking out North Vancouver’s craft brew scene. Very conveniently, these two breweries are located within a couple of blocks of each other. Bridges and Deep Cove Brewers.
Bridge Brewing Company's regular items include their Pale Ale (sweet caramel tones) made from pilsner malt and German Noble hops mixed with some special local varieties. Also standard is the manditory IPA, which they describe as “a strong and clean flavour, with moderate bitterness and yet a soft floral aroma, displaying distinct tropical, citrus, lemon and grapefruit tones.” More interesting is the Kolsch, which you don’t see everywhere! Among their seasonal offerings was excellent Stout, far more flavourful than the world-famous model.
