About the Host:

Granville Island Brewing's love of flavourful beer runs deep, and it inspired them to open as Canada’s first microbrewery back in 1984.

In a time of limited beer options, it became their mission to craft delicious, locally brewed beer that they were proud to share with their friends. Today, that mission remains the same, with every new style offered at their original small batch brewery on Granville Island.

From their very first Island Lager, to the wide variety of flavours they craft today, their beer is as flavourful and refreshing as the moments people spend together. Some are bold and full of life, others are a little more laid back – but every one is brewed with high quality, natural ingredients – and best enjoyed with friends.
