Granville Island was once the dangerous heart of industrial Vancouver. Tangled ropes. Rusty chains. Noise. Soot. Rickety shacks. Now it’s bustling markets, high drama, excellent West Coast dining, and a dockside artsy vibe that’s famous across Canada. It’s also the place where we’ve been brewing up good times since 1984.
Introducing the complete Under the Bridge Series: four beers as unique as the ‘island’ that inspired them. Using local ingredients, the Under the Bridge series is a natural progression for the beer lover in all of us.
Infamous IPA: Granville Island wasn’t always pretty parks and public markets. This place has a tough, gritty past; firetrap factories, shadowy characters, dark dockside tales. A bitter start, and a bright finish. Sound familiar? Our-well hopped IPA pays homage to this patchy history, with plenty of Pacific Northwest flavours. Find out what made this beer infamous here: Infamous IPA.
Swing Span Amber Ale: Way back when, this bridge swung aside to let tall ships through. We’re blowing a horn to that heritage with this medium-bodied, deep amber ale – rich with aromas of premium Mosaic and Cascade hops. Swing over here for more beer info: Swing Span Amber Ale.
Hey Day Hefeweizen: Look back, look forward, and look to Granville Island, where this brilliant Hefe was born. Inspired by the West Coast, this classic wheat ale is cloudy, crisp and dry, with aromas of banana and clove – great with brunch, patios, and bright dispositions. Try it with breakfast and let your day shine! Explore more about this cloudy treat here: Hey Day Hefeweizen.
Maple Shack Cream Ale: This malty, smooth maple cream ale has a hint of maple syrup, with mild hop bitterness. It’s a tribute to both
Quebec’s legendary sugar shacks, and the tin roofs that littered Granville Island back in the day. Big saps welcome. Take a sip and enjoy the caramel malts, light hop bitterness, and hints of maple. This beer pairs perfectly with roast beef or BBQ ribs. Discover how it shacks up here: Maple Shack Cream Ale.
