I know Christmas is just a few short days away, but if you wanted to get me something (you probably do) and haven’t yet, then I’d be all over this new book called Drinking Vancouver: 100+ Great Bars in the City and Beyond. It is a book about drinking in Vancouver! Not that I really need it, but I’m sure I could find a few spots in the book that I haven’t heard or thought of yet.
The book is written by John Lee, author of the Lonely Planet city guides for Vancouver, which means he knows these parts and is a good writer (even better than us). I’ve heard that John pays special attention to beer and many of our illustrious brewers, which can only be a good thing for our local beer scene. If you’ve been wanting to learn more about beer in Vancouver and wanted a guide, then buy this book and get drinking. I do believe the book comes out in January, but it is already available online from Chapters. I am definitely going to check this book out, even if nobody gets it for me for Christmas.
