Mount Pleasant

Mount Pleasant’s intentions are clear as soon as you spy the “Keep Vancouver Wet” sign at 11th Avenue. This is Portland North, self-consciously so, but that’s no reason not to reap the spoils of the area’s vintage scene and exploding craft brew culture. After all, the neighbourhood stands atop a brewing legacy more than a century old and is now the epicentre of the city’s craft beer revival. Sample a tasting flight at the award-winning Brassneck accompanied by some gourmet munchies from the rotating cast of food trucks parked outside, or pair your brew with some music at Red Truck’s summer concert series. You’re in beer lover’s paradise now.
