Bridge is Vancouver's first nano-brewery (about 5 months older than the brand-new Powell Street Craft Brewery), and is tucked away in an industrial area just over the Second Narrows Bridge. And when I say tucked away, I mean it - as a nano-brewery, they're able to operate out of a space the size of some breweries' storage closets.
But despite being hidden away in an industrial complex, Bridge was surprisingly easy to get to on transit; we made it from Main and Cordova to their front door in just over twenty minutes. When we arrived, Leigh, who owns Bridge with husband Jason, wasted no time in pouring us some tasters of the three brews they had available: the North Shore Pale Ale, the North Shore Black IPA and The Grinch Christmas Ale.
