For a city that once outlawed breweries downtown, the Vancouver beer scene has only gotten stronger in recent years, fostering a tight-knit network of brewers and beer aficionados. Pioneering breweries like Mt. Tabor Brewing, Loowit Brewing, and Heathen Brewing have operated in the city for years, helping rebuild and revitalize Vancouver’s beer scene within the last decade. Many of the city’s brewers started at home, picking up a kit from Bader Beer and Wine Supply, and discovering a love for fermenting malt and hops. Now, the area is home to at least 30 breweries, tapping kegs of IPA, pilsner, and more.
