Vancouver has been named as the Best Beer Town in Canada, an accolade and ranking for Vancouver in the number one spot comes thanks to the team at Expedia, who factored in the following criteria: the total number of breweries and brewpubs where you can grab a pint; awards; and originality, whether that meanes creating unique flavours or building a brand new beer following.
A spokeperson from Expedia explains that it's hard to dispute that Vancouver is the craft capital of Canada - singling out the city for neighbourhoods like Mount Pleasant's historic Brewery Creek zone and the east side as 'Yeast Van, as well as a number of great brews.
Craft beer is definitely on an upward swing that seems to have no ceiling, and the game is contantly being improved with new developments like brewing collectives-bold new moves that keep the industry on its toes.
The Best Beer Towns in Canada included 17 places coast to coast. Other B.C. spots that are brewing up the good stuff are Nelson (11), Abbotsford (6) and Penticton (2).
