Trippin’ Out: Staycation BC heads to the Okanagan and Interior

In our Summer issue, we served up a batch of stories about the beer scene on the Island and Coast, featuring an ‘Ale Trail’ beer loop that a few of our regular writers travelled during the spring. Now, in the spirit of Staycation BC, we’re embarking on a much bigger loop: the entire South BC Interior, including the Thompson/Okanagan, Kootenays and Rockies regions.

This summer, I took a long-overdue trip down to‘Yeast Van’ to check out Callister Brewing and Doan’s Craft Brewing Company. Simply put, it was great to finally visit these two welcome additions to the neighbourhood. Cycling down to the area was a breeze with the two-way bike lane past the Cordova Diversion and over the new Powell street overpass. There are certainly other ways to get down to the area by bike, but coming from downtown, this was the best.

Recent Craft Beer Price Hike$

I know just a short month ago I stated I was packing it in as a blogger, but this latest BC Liberal move, which saw them randomly hike the prices of beers, mostly craft beers, without telling the breweries ahead of time or giving them a cut of the increase, has me foaming at the mouth and I feel compelled to vent here before I explode.
