Storm Brewing: Craft Beer in East Vancouver

Diana Chan December 18, 2016 Brewery, Commercial Drive / Grandview, Three Beakers

Storm Brewing is a bit different that other breweries in Vancouver. They don’t have a lounge or a tasting room.

When you walk through their sliding door, you are right in the middle of where the brewing magic takes place.

You are essentially in their workspace brewing away some amazing beers. There are no seats, no tables, and no food.

Anyone 19+ can sample up to 6 different brews one at a time by a cash donation. They do not have pints or flights.

They have lots of beers to choose from. They have their mainstays and a bunch of experiments brews.

Mainstays:

  • Precipitation Pilsner 5%
  • Highland Scottish Ale 5%
  • Hurricane IPA 7%
  • Black Plague Stout 8%
  • Imperial Flanders Sour Ale 8%
  • Chales Dickens 7.5%

Brainstorms:

  • Vanilla Whiskey Stout 9%
  • Rosemary IPA 7%
  • Turkey Dinner IPA 7%
  • Snake Eyes Ale 7.5%
  • Glacial Mammoth Extinction 25%
  • Mrs Claus Pilsner 5%
  • Lemon Ginger IPA 7%

We spent more time trying these ones as they are pretty unique compared to other breweries. Rosemary IPA and Turkey Dinner IPA have strong aroma of herbs. I was surprised this flavour combination would be possible.

My friends also paid $5 extra to try the Glacial Mammoth Extinction at 25% alcohol. I didn’t try it since I had to be a responsible driver to get everyone to our next spot.

Overall, this place is super unique, but you most likely won’t be spending too much time here. The space is definitely sketch, but they do have some pretty cool beers. I love how much they experiment with beers.
