On a recent trip to British Columbia, I carried John Schreiner's BC Coastal Wine Tour Guide. What better way to review a book for Serious Eats: Drinks than to put it to the test? We were two thirsty travelers in search of inspiration and knowledge. Could Schreiner help us?
'British Columbia' on Serious Eats
The book is far more than just a list of breweries, tasting rooms, and pubs. It's an in-depth look at the Oregon, Washington, and British Columbia brew scene that is spiked with history, factoids, and profiles of Pacific Northwest beer pioneers.
Vancouver also has a craft-cocktail scene that is just now reaching critical mass, and the city now has a number of places where you can find ambitious, creative drinks unlike those found anywhere else in the world.
