33 Acres Brewing Co.

Vancouver's 33 Acres Brewing Company opened this July after owner Josh Michnik spent two years planning, brewing, and setting up infrastructure. Response seems overwhelmingly positive: by mid-September, the brewing company had already sold out and had to briefly close their tasting room.

Luckily, by the time we visited, the tasting room was open and full of neighbors enjoying a pint or a flight of three beers (their seasonal selection was a standout) and stopping in to chat. I especially loved the clean-lined, light-filled room, complete with simple stools, potted succulents, and interesting light fixtures.
