East Van is our home. East Van is our beer.
Craft beer has been part of East Vancouver culture from the earliest days of the microbrewing movement. One of the city’s early beer pioneers, Shaftebury Brewing, was situated there, and Storm Brewing also set up shop there in the ‘90s, long before East Van was a cool place to be. Over the past decade a wave of new breweries has opened there, including this one, which named itself after the neighbourhood.
The brewery was the brainchild of the owner of the London Pub who registered the name in 2012 as he saw a wave of new breweries opening in the city, and then waited for the right space to open up. The East Vancouver Brewing Co. finally opened five years later. It has a sizeable tasting room inside with a temporary mezzanine space upstairs to allow for physical distancing, and has recently opened a patio on the sidewalk with a great view of downtown Vancouver.
Beer-wise, East Van has 12 taps featuring a solid core line-up along with rotating seasonals so you know you will always find something fresh and interesting. Its taproom kitchen features paninis, calzones and other snacks from Bianca Maria, a local Italian delicatessen that has been operating for 60 years. It doesn’t get any more East Van than that!
