Craft Beer in Gastown – Where There’s Beer, There’s History

The following article was submitted by the Gastown BIA.

In Gastown, beer and history go together, as much as french fries and ketchup; you can’t have one without the other.

As the birthplace of Vancouver, Gastown is as old it gets when it comes to the remnants of a time that once was. It’s almost impossible to sit in any of our fine watering holes and not have some bit of history sidle up beside you.

Vancouver is Canada’s craft beer capital and in Gastown, you can chose from well over a hundred different varieties.

Come for the beer, stay for the old.

Get Around Like a Local – 6 Places in Vancouver Worth Taking Public Transit To

One of my favourite things about living in Vancouver is how you can get anywhere in the city, and to some great day trip places, via public transit. There isn’t really any need to drive anywhere. Which is just as well because driving in any city can be a bit of a pain!

I’ve been taking Vancouver’s public transit all my life and I’ve got the TransLink routes locked down. While I’m always a firm believer of walking everywhere, sometimes you need to hop on the train. Here is a quick recap of the convenient and accessible transit options* and six of my favourite attractions worth taking them to!

Filming in Vancouver: Jason Momoa, Seth Rogen, Child’s Play, Chesapeake Shores, and more

Aquaman star Jason Momoa is coming to Vancouver to head up a new TV series.

While this week’s roundup of what’s shooting in Vancouver has a recurring theme of projects revolving around child characters, they may not be what you expect at all.

To wit, there’s a sci-fi babysitting TV series, a horror remake, and an R-rated comedy (yes, an R-rated film about kids!).

But there are lot of other things in the mix, including a new sci-fi TV series with a rising action star, a potential new TV series about warrior witches, and some productions that recently wrapped nearby in B.C.

Here’s a look at what’s been coming and going from Vancouver’s screen scene and elsewhere in the province.
