Rundown:
Tasting Room: Yes
Growler Filler: Yes (Empty: 473ml – $3.25ish | 1 Litre – $6.30ish | 1.9 Litre – $11.00ish)
Food: No, but they’re cool with you bringing in food, and there are usually food trucks outside

Atmosphere:
Brassneck is probably my favourite brewery in Vancouver right now. They have such well-designed branding (remember I’m a design nut), they actually have a tasting room, the interior decorating is superb, and the beer is great!

Nomnomnom:
There’s pepperoni sticks, chilli, and cheese twists, but that’s about it. So if you’re hungry, I’d suggest bringing in food from outside, and they have a handy list of food trucks on their site. http://brassneck.ca/food-trucks/

The Run Down:
When I was here the first time I had a flight of four 6oz glasses ($8.00). I had Mr Personality amber (5%), The Geezer Dry English Porter (5%), No Brainer Corn Lager (4.5%), and Joe’s Barn Saison (6%). I went back recently, and tried the “Magic Beans” coffee beer (6.5%), which was initially a collaboration with Bows & Arrows Coffee Roasters in Victoria BC. The 2nd and 3rd batches had beans from other Canadian coffee joints (2nd: Anchored Coffee – Nova Scotia & cold brew from Revolver Coffee in Vancouver) (3rd: Elysian Coffee in Vancouver)

Cute Story:
When Marc asked for a tasting paddle, one of the beers was ‘Short Term Memory Farmhouse Ale (6%)’ and when the barman went to write it he paused and said “hmm, I always forget this one” – PUNNY!!!

To Try:
Magic Beans (6.5%)- Because I said so gosh darnit! It’s awesome! Sorry to fangirl right now but it tastes just like coffee, hollaaa can I get a #yum?

To Note:
When filling growlers, they utilize a tool called a “Blichmann gun” which connects the bottle fillers straight to the conditioning tanks, meaning the beer is very fresh. They also purche oxygen from the bottles, which makes the beer last a bit longer.
