Vancouver Was Awesome: Your Grandparents’ BC Bud, 1931


A Vancouver time travelogue brought to you by Past Tense.

BC Bud beer was launched in 1931 by Coast Breweries Limited, a consortium based in Vancouver. In 1933, the company bought controlling interest in the San Francisco brewery that introduced Lucky Lager, which was later taken over by Labatt’s and remains a popular economy beer in BC and down the Pacific coast.
