Rebecca Whyman, Kevin Wood, Mike The Beerrater and Dustan Sept are all prolific BC beer writers who deliver a steady stream of reviews on their blogs. They get us hopped up on brews both local and from abroad, so we asked each of them to share their top 2 Vancouver beers - along with their thoughts on them - so that we could pass them on to you here. Cheers!

4 beer bloggers weigh in on Vancouver's best brews

By Vancouver Is Awesome

Rebecca (Becks) Whyman, Kevin Wood, Mike The Beerrater and Dustan Sept share their local favourites

  • Dustan: Driftwood's Entangled Hopfenweisse

    By Vancouver Is Awesome

    This one brings Germany back home to BC. This Heffeweizen blends big German Weisse flavours of banana and clove with northwest hops giving tasty mango, passion fruit and citrus notes.

  • Dustan: Four Winds Saison

    By Vancouver Is Awesome

    This takes Belgian tradition and gives it a hopped twist. A crisp, light body meets a northwest-style hop resulting in a delicious, unique and locally inspired, international flavour.

  • Kevin: R&B Brewing's Darkstar Oatmeal Stout

    By Vancouver Is Awesome

    This black as black and smooth Oatmeal Stout has long been a fave. Its distinct roasted coffee flavour followed by a nice chocolatey, malty bitter finish makes it a go to on cold winter nights

  • Kevin: Main Street Brewing's Westminster Brown

    By Vancouver Is Awesome

    Landing between a traditional English brown ale and American brown, Main Street's WB delivers layers of caramel and brown sugar followed by a nice roastiness and a bold hoppy finish.

  • Beerrater: Parallel 49 Robo Ruby Imperial Red IPA

    By Vancouver Is Awesome

    Robo Ruby mixes 3 of my favourite things: IPAs, Red Ales and Robots. It combines a big strong west coast tasting IPA with the body of a red ale giving it a complexity that you have to love.

  • Beerrater: Deep Cove Brewers' Star Struck Rye IPA

    By Vancouver Is Awesome

    Star Struck slaps you in the face with 82 IBUs of hops then the rye malts come in to really get the party started.  Think of it like your one cool uncle; enjoyably offensive.

  • Becks: Powell Street Brewing Co's Ode to Citra

    By Vancouver Is Awesome

    Citrusy, floral and alluring - citra hops definitely deserve an ode! This ode is full of pale and dark crystal malts, forming the pale ale backbone that showcases all the flavours of the citra hop. 

  • Becks: Storm Brewing's Imperial Flanders Red

    By Vancouver Is Awesome

    Pucker-up, buttercup! Tart does not even begin to describe this belgian-style ale aged in oak barrels. Definitely a beer for lovers of balsamic vinegar and all things sour. Soul-satisfyingly delicious
