I was given a tour of Vancouver’s NEW newest brewery, @postmarkbrewing, today (a couple weeks back it was @mainstreetbeer). I love how many of these places are opening and will continue touring them and offering looks behind the scenes on vancouverisawesome.com. 
Located in the same building as the Vancouver Urban Winery, I learned all about how the owners of Postmark actually have a lock on the wine on tap in Canada with their business, FreshTAP. If you drink wine in a restaurant and it comes from a spout these guys were likely involved in getting it to you.

But back to the subject at hand: BEER! Get some from their growler window at 55 Dunlevy right now. They just opened up 2 days ago and are pouring a delicious Red IPA.

1896’s version of a smart meter, on display at the Powerhouse at Stave Falls near Mission BC. Well worth the $6 admission to this museum. #bchydro

I hope you don’t unfollow because of this scary mummified salmon I captured in a dried up riverbed in the Paradise Valley. Chum salmon have CRAZY teeth. But the craziest thing is that there were many portions of the river where salmon had laid their eggs last year which didn’t hatch before the water level went down. While walking I found a tiny hole something had dug in the sand and noticed eggs all around it. Confused at first, I dug a bit myself and found the area was teeming with rotting eggs just under the surface of the sand. Millions of eggs won’t make their way to become fish, so it’s a good thing the Department of Fisheries and Oceans hatches something like 400 million per year in their Salmonid Enhancement program that’s been running since 1977.

The view from @thepeakvancouver studios this morning. I just realized I’ve been doing a weekly feature from this perch for almost 5 years now! This May will be the anniversary. #peakmornings

This 745 foot wide public art installation is currently stretched between the 24th floor of the Fairmont Waterfront and the Vancouver Convention Centre West. It’s a part of #TED2014 and at night becomes an interactive piece controlled by you and your phone. Get down and see it before March 21st as it’ll likely leave town as soon as the supergenius tent gets folded up for the year. #yvr #vancouverbc #vancouverisawesome #vancity #igersvancouver #britishcolumbia

The @museumofvan is opening an exhibit called ‘Rewilding Vancouver’ on February 27th and they sent out this photo in their promo kit. Amazing. Looking forward to checking it out. #vancouverisawesome #yvr #vancouver
