Dana's Craft Beer Blog - Granville Island

Some old friends came by my patio this past weekend, Granville Island Brewing's Brockton IPA & Kitsilano Maple Cream. Its was good to reconnect, I told them not to take it too personal that I've been spending time with their co worker False Creek Raspberry Ale but its only around for the spring / summer (that's another post, I just keep drinking it before I can write about it). I remember when Vern & the GIB gang launched Brockton a few years ago, I was hooked and attended 4 IPA launch parties with Mr. Roberts, in 1 week. As stated in other posts I'm pro hop but if your new to world of IPA this is a great start crisp, clean and a good hop finish! Aside from GIB being in the game for 25 years, from Vancouver and it's one of the O.G. Micro Brewers from Canada, they do it right. Using quality water from the Vancouver mountains mixed with quality local ingredients and following the laws of 1516 they keep the integrity in all their beers. Don't believe me? Go down to Granville Island and visit Vernon in the brewery, always fun. At this point I should state I'm out of words and haven't event talked about Maple Cream, but I think you get the picture, old friends show up and you start talking about the good times!
