Powell Street Brewing Co
Over the last few years, Vancouver has seemingly overtaken Victoria as the craft beer capital of Canada. This part of the country has opened up craft brewing to the masses by introducing a layout that includes tasting rooms and much more; all this working to make for an increasingly enjoyable experience for patrons. Yeast Van is one-half of Vancouver’s craft brewing hotspots. Craft beer enthusiasts can take one of our tours for an opportunity to sample the high-quality beers produced by Powell Street Brewing Co, one of the most highly acclaimed Vancouver craft breweries located in the Yeast Van area.
Read on below to find out more about this Vancouver brewery and why you should take our explorative tour.
Powell Street Brewing Co is one of the most respected micro breweries in Vancouver, and Canada as a whole. The brewery which is ran by a husband and wife team initially started as a nano brewery back in 2012. They were forced to expand just a year later after receiving the Beer of the Year award in the Canadian Brewing Awards. This level of recognition brought them into the limelight on a national scale. Their award winning Old Jalopy Pale Ale became a national sensation, increasing demand for their offering through the roof.
As previously stated, Powell Street Brewing Co grew from being a nano brewery to a nationally recognised microbrewery almost overnight. Just after opening their doors in 2012, their Old Jalopy Pale Ale won Beer of the year Award in the Canadian Beer Awards, and they were forced to grow into a micro brewery to meet the increasing demand for their impressive craft beers. The journey to supplying patrons of all walks of life with their highly sought after craft beers had began in earnest. They were forced to move to a larger place where they could expand their operation to a micro brewery; this was realised in 2014. As one of the top Vancouver craft breweries today, they welcome visitors to tour their facility and even sample their locally produced beers in their exceptional tasting room.
