Vancouver’s North Shore Tourism Association (VNSTA) has announced that Vancouver’s North Shore Craft Beer Week is returning to the Shipyards District from November 2 to 14, 2023.
Craft beer lovers are invited to join North Shore brewmasters for the kick-off Launch Party on November 2 from 5-10 pm at The Pipe Shop in the Shipyards District.
