Vancouver Craft Beer Week - The Burrard Hotel
Back for sixth year, Vancouver Craft Beer Week just gets better and more stupendously awesome each time. As Canada’s largest craft beer festival this is a serious event for the hop-obsessed. But, and this is important, it’s also a lot of fun for the rest of us too. How do we know this? Each year, VCBW has a theme, and this year’s theme is “Music Food Beer.”

The Bottleneck - Top Vancouver Happy Hours
We love a bargain. We also love a frosty beverage. Put them both together and you get happy hour drinks! It’s only been in the last couple of years that B.C.’s liquor laws have changed to allow these golden periods of dirt cheap drinks at the end of the work day, which means it’s still a bit of a novelty to us. This also means that we’re still keen on doing our research to ferret out the best combinations of value, quality and atmosphere. So here, we present to you our six top Vancouver happy hours to hit, with a focus on those within a short walk of The Burrard.

Since 1972, runners have been dashing through the 42.2 kilometre (26.2 mile) course that makes up the BMO Vancouver Marathon. Last year, 5,000 participants ran through three parks, six beaches and 12 neighbourhoods before making it to the finish line, all while being cheered along by 100,000 spectators and excellent local bands! Along with those running the full distance, there were also another 12,500 more runners completing the half-marathon and 8K courses.
