BEERFEST | Brassneck Brewery x Mount Pleasant

Brassneck Brewery | Mount Pleasant, Vancouver

Mount Pleasant—Out of all the local breweries, I probably frequent the nano Brassneck Brewery the most, likely for its sheer amount of beer variety. Their Main Street tasting room is full of character and a serious destination for ales and brews of all kinds. As always, I did my best to recollect all their beers I've drank so far since my last post.

The Geezer (dry English porter) is a solid, smooth, altogether robust and easy drinking porter. I highly recommend it.

Staircase Wit (Belgian wheat beer) is classic in its taste with strong coriander and orange flavours full of Belgian yeast and wheat malts.

Ten Times Ten (American pale ale) is mild yet unmistakable centennial hopped brew with a fine taste.

Umlaut (Hefeweizen) is a really great Bavarian style Hef with hints of banana, clove, and cinnamon. This is a standout, fantastic seasonal beer.

Short Term Memory (farmhouse ale) is another winning saison with a strong malty kick to it.

Massive Aggressive (dry hopped double pale ale) is a splendid yet intensely hoppy ale full of flavour.

Small Wonder (table saison) is a light yet refreshing saison with some nice, subtle fruity hints.

Quad Curious (smokey Belgian quad) is a very strong, bold beer that's "not for the faint of heart" with a very intense, smokey taste. Drink at your own risk.

Blacklight (black altbier) is a nicely delightful tasting dark ale with a hefty German influence and great finish.

Magic Beans (collaboration coffee beer) has a strong caffeinated kick with lots of Elysian Coffee flavours. Think cold brew coffee meets amber ale.

Multiweizen (5-grain Hefeweizen) is cloudy and refreshing with a nice, seasonal kick to it.

Brassneck vs. Tim Fukushima (barrel aged brown ale) is a complex, vibrant, unique brew with deep flavours and an in your face attitude.

Brassneck also has food trucks six nights a week including the delicious and closely sourced The Local Omnivore (every Saturday). Do yourself a favour, order the cheeseburger (made with a 4oz. grass fed beef patty and cheddar), add the house-made bacon, munch on some crispy Kennebec fries, and thank me later. (Visit their Chinatown burger bar pop-up this Friday at 337 East Hastings.)

With all that, Brassneck has quickly become a bustling watering hole and popular fixture in the local community and neighbourhood with their steady output of beers one after another. Happy drinking.
