Make your own gingerbread house, break out the denim and sample some barley wines: what’s happening this month at Vancouver’s craft breweries

Nothing says holiday spirit like craft beer. Well, office parties and mistletoe might be a close second.

If you’re wondering what’s happening at Vancouver breweries, here are a few special events this month.

Gingerbread House Workshop (Dec. 16, 2-5 p.m., Strange Fellows, 1345 Clark Dr.)—Get a crew together and drink some beer while you assemble your own gingerbread house. Materials include gingerbread pieces, frosting, candy, board, and a box to bring it home in, and are provided by Whipped and  & Beaten Bakeshop. RSVP here.

Host brewery Parallel 49 is also pouring four of their own barleywines/strong ales, including Crown Jewels, the brewery’s 2019 Barleywine.

Canadian Tuxedo New Years Party (Dec. 31 at Electric Bicycle, 20 E. 4th Ave)—What is a Canadian Tuxedo? It’s all denim—jean jacket and jeans, and it’s what all the cool kids will be wearing come New Year’s Eve at Electric Bicycle.

  1. Sample barleywines and strong ales

  2. Here and there, the Barleywine Festival’s declining notoriety has made it a more agreeable issue than the pressed places of past years. I had a magnificent time a year ago, and individuals truly had a ball. Be that as it may, it simply doesn’t bode well.
