On a rainy Saturday afternoon, it’s best to stay dry and indoors.
J and I chose to go beer tasting.
Believe it or not, today was the first time we visited Olympic Village. We got off the Canada Line station and walked about 10 minutes to the Salt Building where Craft Beer Market is located.
I love the old building – the wooden structure, the warm lighting and the huge selection of beer on tap! It had a very welcoming feel.
To be honest, the beer selection was overwhelming to me. Despite
having a description for all the beers, I still had a hard time deciding. In the end, I opted for the easy option – beer flights.
Beer flights – a selection of 6 4-oz beers. They had an “around the world” option and a “what the locals drink” option. I chose the latter. I liked that it had a good mixture of light ales to lagers to IPA. My favorite was definitely Main Street Pilsner, refreshing, a bit fruity and with a clean, crisp finish.
We also ordered food to go with our beer, of course. Usually something starchy would help to soak up the alcohol, but today we ordered wings, bacon & maple syrup flavor. It was moist, with a good amount of bacon grease and a hint of sweetness from maple syrup. It hit the spot!
To round things out, we ended the date with a S’more Bomb. It was their interpretation of s’mores. It was different but I would say I still prefer the traditional toasty, melty warm s’more better.
J and I are definitely light-weight drinkers. We were fairly tipsy after the beer tasters! Tipsy and very satisfied.
It was a fun afternoon. I would definitely go again!
