Streetcar Brewing

We’ve been several times to Streetcar Brewing and it’s become one of my favourite breweries in town. It’s located between Lagree West and Champions Martial Arts Academy.

Sign outside. Hours changed depending on the season.

Happy hour is 2:00pm to 4:00pm (Monday to Thursday)!

The entrance is a bit hidden unless you come from the alleyway. From 1st Street, walk down a flight of stairs to enter the building.

Most people are outside chilling on the patio (three tables with fire pits for the winter season) but the inside has 6 tables.

One of the tables has arcade games (Capcom featuring mostly Street Fighter along with a few other random games). Line up at the bar to order. Merchandise is tucked away in one corner.

They usually have 8 beers on tap along with some Northyards cider options. Awesome that they offer beer slushies (in the summer)!

Happy hour is offered from Monday to Thursday (2:00pm to 4:00pm) and they’ve started serving three types of pizza (from Bowen Pizza Company) ($15.00 to $19.00).

Their one year anniversary barrel aged golden sour beer sounds interesting.

Trip #1
We dropped in on a busy Saturday afternoon (around 4:00pm).

2x Flight
DSC01516We opted for the citrus wheat ale ($2.25), peach radler ($2.75), apricot smoothie sour ($2.75) and blackberry smoothie sour ($2.75).

DSC01517

Nothing particularly memorable about the citrus wheat ale but the other three flavours were right up our alleyway.

DSC01518

Peach radler was fantastic and had me reminiscing of my childhood love for fuzzy peaches.

DSC01519

Apricot sour tasted like dried apricots.

DSC01520

Blackberry sour was smooth and creamy.

DSC01514

The only one N got different was the blackberry smoothie sour slush ($3.00) which she said was delightful.

Trip #2
We dropped in on a Saturday again (around 6:00pm) and it was bumping.

Flight
DSC03118This time we tried the pumpkin spice strong ale ($2.75), blueberry smoothie sour ($2.75), peach radler ($2.75) and simple stout ($2.25).

DSC03119

The pumpkin spice strong ale smells like fall baking.

DSC03120

Blueberry smoothie sour was refreshing; honestly, any of their smoothie sour flavours have been fantastic.

DSC03121

Peach radler is still crushable.

DSC03122

The simple stout was just as described; smooth, easy drinking.

Trip #3
We dropped in on another bumping Saturday afternoon (around 4:00pm).

Flight
DSC03502We went with the Northyards raspberry cider ($2.75), root beer candy cane ale ($2.25), coffee crispy boi collab with Sundown ($2.25) and raspberry porter ($2.25).

DSC03503

Raspberry cider was decent but lacked a punch in flavour.

DSC03505

Our favourite of the beers was the coffee crispy boi blonde ale; smooth and akin to biting into a coffee crisp bar.

DSC03504

We appreciated the experimentation on the other two but not our favourites. Root beer candy cane was exactly as described but we didn’t love the finish. Overly minty.

DSC03506

Raspberry porter needed something to balance it (something like a raspberry chocolate may have worked better).

DSC01511

The peach radler and any of their sours are bomb. Will continue to come back to SB whenever we’re in North Van!
