Greetings from Granville Island



What better way to relax after sport events than to go to the Granville Island Brewery for a tour?!

The Brewery itself is actually now located further east from the city, but they brew their small specialty batches and give tours on Granville Island itself.

We ran into some students doing an ethnography, which I haven't thought about much since I had to do one in high school! So it was fun to reminisce about the process, and how they chose their subject matter (their subculture? Beer tasters :))

I also learned from our tour guide that I.B.U.s are "very American" - which I would have never guessed considering the "I" stands for "International"...go figure.


Some hilarious "guerilla art" on the Granville Bridge


Sampling beer...tough day


While on Granville Island we also tried a "Whoopee Pie" which is your choice of gelato and two fresh-made cookies. I opted for Mocha flavor
