The Alibi Room's Nigel Springthorpe opened Main Street's newest brewery and tasting room this weekend and introduced Vancouver to a brand-new way to enjoy beer - accompanied by food trucks.
This is a pretty new concept for Vancouver but it's really popular in Portland. The brewery isn't doing food so I invited food trucks to come along and set up outside so people can come along, buy something to eat from the trucks and bring it inside to the tasting room.
I've had a great response from the trucks including Tacofino, Fliptop, the Aussie Pie Guy and Community Pizzeria. I'm planning to try and schedule them so people know who's going to be there. It was a great atmosphere this weekend; people were there with their kids, hanging out in the tasting room. I had the guys from the Yolks truck there from 11a.m. and people were having a beer brunch. We've got 6oz pours so you don't have to commit to huge breakfast pint!
But you know, you can if you want. No judgement here.
