Get ready for Vancouver Craft Beer Week
If you like good beer, May 18 to 26 is your week. The taps will be overflowing during Vancouver Craft Beer Week, with over 50 breweries and 60-plus venues participating. Look for festival tastings, a beer-cocktail competition, beer pairing dinners, and even a Belgian-beer brunch at BierCraft (1191 Commercial Drive) on May 21. May 23 sees the grand opening of Portland Craft, a new brew-lovers spot at 3835 Main Street. Some events are already sold out and others require advance tickets, but for many you can just show up thirsty. For info, see www.vancouvercraftbeerweek.com.
