There’s nothing quite like enjoying a crisp, refreshing beer on a hot day. Drinking outside is always enjoyable, and with patios filling up faster than a yoga class on a Saturday morning, there’s not too many places to enjoy a cold one under the sun. Until Vancouver liquor laws change and drinking becomes legal on the beach, another social place to enjoy a beer during the summer is at an outdoor festival.

This Saturday, July 30 from 2-8pm, the inaugural CANcity festival will be taking over Vancouver’s Queen Elizabeth Theatre Plaza to bring you the newest Craft Beer & Cider sampling event – with a little twist: everything is coming from a can!

Thanks to a change in legislation, new Vancouver breweries are popping up all over the city with tasting rooms and growler fills to keep up with the ever rising popularity of craft beer.

You may be able to easily understand what a tasting room is (a room to taste the freshly brewed beer!), but what the heck is a growler?!

Essentially, a growler is a large (2L) old-school jug that can be filled with beer at almost any local brewery in town. It typically costs $5-10 initially to buy and then ~$9-15 to fill up. Filling a growler at a local Vancouver brewery means that you get fresh beer to-go! Instead of heading to the liquor store to buy beer that may have been sitting on the shelves for a few weeks/months, you can rest assured that your beer is as fresh as a daisy.

So, where can you get your growler filled in Vancouver?
