The Art! Bike! Beer! Crawl takes art lovers on a cycling or walking tour of the Eastside community making tasting stops at four breweries, most of which are exhibiting art as well.

The afternoon – which supports the Eastside Culture Crawl – is a great way for beer and art lovers to get out and see and taste what’s brewing in the neighbourhood.

  • Off The Rail Brewing
