As a Canadian, I am not one to normally celebrate July 4th. Alas, my roommate Cam is one of those people who loves America, wears American flag socks etc. So today we are throwing a semi-ironic America party. To stomach this oh so joyous occasion, I will be drinking amazing beer. A rough life I live, I know.
I love the booming craft beer market scene in Vancouver and just generally around the Pacific Northwest. It is a revitalization of an amazing craft! Apparently, beer making is going through one of the largest revolutions in its history. Local breweries, because of their size, can brew interesting and unique beers, playing with flavours. Beer does not have to be the ‘piss-water’ experience it was made out to be. Instead it can rival wine in terms of cultural capital!
