Today, Bridge Brewing takes their brewery to the next level by opening their kitchen and introducing Chef Krissy Seymour. The all-day menu will offer a selection of tacos based upon seasonal and local ingredients. All sauces and salsas are made in house with meat being purchased locally in North Vancouver from Two Rivers Specialty Meats.

“We are thrilled to expand beyond beer – with our new lounge licence, customers can stick around and enjoy a bite to eat along with their pint of beer,” says Bridge Brewing co-founder, Jason Stratton.

The menu includes:
·         Jerk pulled pork with pineapple salsa, avocado crema and pickled red cabbage
·         Lime and coconut braised chicken with sprouts, crushed peanuts and sweet chilli
·         Buffalo paneer with yam and black beans, chipotle, and cilantro yogurt

What’s up next? Bridge has received its lounge license and is looking forward to expanding hours of operation and building a patio with outside seating for the summer. 

Since opening their doors in 2012 beer lovers all over B.C. have discovered Bridge Brewing’s great tasting, high quality craft beer. Beginning as Vancouver’s first nano brewery – people voted with their mouths and they have grown from 930 square feet to 15,000.  Bridge Brewing is a 99% waste free brewery and is focused heavily on it’s environmental and community impact.

About Cook St. Liquor:
Victoria’s Cook St. Liquor has proudly ousted most mainstream corporate-made brews from its fridges to make room for high-quality craft beer – and lots of it. Cook St. Liquor is equally selective about the wines and spirits it sells, choosing, whenever possible, offerings from small producers.

In addition to its outstanding selection, Cook St. Liquor offers expert advice through an exceptionally knowledgeable staff, special events, and Beer Mail – a non-subscription mail-order service that makes the best domestic and imported craft beers available to those in even the smallest BC communities. And, as of February 1, the store is marking the 150 days until Canada’s 150th birthday by spotlighting a different Canadian-made product each day.
