The only thing Canadians love more than the idea of Justin Bieber sexting with Carrie-Anne Moss from the bathroom of a Tim Horton's are meese dressed up as Mounties. Also, Molson beer. And now, for the first time ever, you can actually see and drink in the hulking 500,000sqft brewery where those famous Canadian suds are made, all thanks to Vancouver Food Tour, who've also got the perfect night planned for once you're done.
Overlooking Vancouver's Granville Island, this iconic suds-space -- reminiscent of Seattle's dearly departed Rainier Brewery -- boasts a fermentation room with towering metal tanks visible from Burrard, a brewhouse with three-story windows providing soaring views of Kitsilano, and a packaging facility where each year they turn out more than 2.2 million hectolitres of beer, which, according to a Canadian guy, is a lot. The tour also includes a tasting session, a lesson on pint pouring, plus historical info on the same-age-as-Vlad-Putin brewery (60) and "Canadian beer legend" John Molson
If you're thirsty for more, after the tour VFT will take you drinking/eating at four sweet spots (a brewpub, a swanked out cocktailery, and two not-for-tourists restos for apps/dinner) all in historic Gastown, which thankfully isn't just any old Tim Horton's bathroom.
