    Last week, I crawled in and out of Steel Toad Brewpub & Dining Hall. This week: Brassneck Brewery. Although ‘brass neck’ is British slang for cocky/impudent/shameless, Brassneck Brewery likes to play it coy.

    Pub #3: Steel Toad

    Last week, I drank at Big Rock Urban Brewery & Eatery. This week: Steel Toad Brewpub & Dining Hall. You’ll find Steel Toad on the north side of East 2nd Ave at Quebec Street. Great location if you live in Olympic Village or your drinking buddy bails on you.

    Pub #2: Big Rock Urban Brewery & Eatery

    Last week, I visited Tap & Barrel. This week: Big Rock Urban Brewery & Eatery.
    This is one super-convenient, craft beer bar. When you’re fleeing downtown and crossing the Cambie Bridge, it’s the first bar you’ll hit before, well, anything.
