As we reported last year the newest craft beer location coming to the Lower Lonsdale Brewery District is called Shaketown Brewing. Which will be situated nearby North Point Brewing in the heritage area of the Shipyards on Esplanade where they make awesome furniture and have great mechanics nearby. There is tons of history throughout that area which lends itself to an interesting experience all around. Right beside them is Copperpenny Distillery and La Cerveceria Astilleros so you have lots of options.
The Lonsdale Avenue corridor of North Vancouver, in particular near the waterfront anchored by Lonsdale Quay, is becoming very diverse and interesting, which is ideal for lifestyle needs when you want to live locally. Plus with all of the fun stuff to do in the neighbourhood, going downtown Vancouver starts to lose its appeal. And the City of North Vancouver is changing the layout of Esplanade which will make it better for using eBikes and similar.
North Vancouver is a mecca for craft beer and liquor and in the summer months there is even a North Shore Craft Beer Week and other events. The Wallace and Pipeshop Venues always seem to have fun things going on there. From workshops to conferences and weddings.
The growing trend of new breweries opening in Lower Lonsdale was also recently covered on CBC News and the Vancouver Courier websites. Which is a good and bad thing, as of course we want more foot traffic to the areas local craft beer businesses, but it is also nice to keep things quiet and peaceful. So far the high density of beer makers has benefited all of them equally with shared foot traffic. There is a neighbourly vibe between the stakeholders in the beer industry here.
We expect Shaketown Brewing, co-founded by Ryan Scholz, to open sometime in 2021 and once we find out more information we will be sure to update this article with the newest photos and news insights. We initially heard about this brewery while travelling on the Seabus from downtown Vancouver to North Vancouver and overhearing a conversation beside us that we took part in. Which goes to show you that getting out in the community and chatting with locals is the best source of news. Finding out the low down before it hits the media.
More to come very soon about this new opening!
