Burrard Liquor Store
Odd Society East Van Vodka 750mL $42.50
Odd Society Spirits have surpassed the already high expectations with their East Van Vodka. In the first moments subtle butterscotch wafts from the spirit. The taste is smooth and complex with lingering notes of honey. It’s a dessert without the calories.
West End Liquor Store
Foamers Folly Earl Grey and Lavender ESB 650ml $9.75
This flavour packed bitter starts with heavy notes of lavender with the crisp finish of earl grey tea. Hands down my personal choice for winner at Hopscotch this year.
Crosstown Staff Pick
Innis & Gunn 660ml $6.95
“This is an oaked-aged Irish beer that has warming notes of vanilla and spice. A nice beer for someone who wants to flavourful beer but not hoppy. I usually drink more basic beers but when you want something with a little more going on, I would recommend Innis & Gunn. Great value too, being a couple dollars cheaper than a lot of local offerings.”
