Doan’s Craft Brewing Co is a family run brewery in the heart of the East Van. From home-brewing to Craft Brewing, the Doan’s family is inspired by great beer, the art and science of craft brewing and the community created by the craft beer movement.
I passed by this shop a few times and thought it looked pretty cute and not pretentious at all. A few friends and I visited their tasting room on a Sunday night and they are open pretty late, which is great.
They do flights, glasses of beer, growlers, and some food too.
Their space is small and doesn’t have too many seats for large groups, but there is one larger communal table and 3 smaller ones in another corner. They also have some cool local art on the walls too.
If you love arcade games, they have an arcade machine with a few games you can play by yourself or with a friend.
Looking at their drinks, I had to get a flight of 4 tasters to get a taste of how their line up of beer tastes.
I got them to pick 4 drinks for me that were on the light end of the spectrum and isn’t too hoppy.
I got the:
- Scrooge’s Light Ale
- Doan Bros Pale Ale
- Rye Stout
All 4 beers were really good, but if I had to choose one, it would be the Kolsh. Very light and refreshing, which I enjoy the most.
Overall, it’s a cool space to hang with friends and enjoy a beer. Super casual atmosphere with good beer.
