Granville Island Brewing is celebrating the launch of the very summery-sounding Peach Sour with a pop-up collab featuring another Granville Island staple, Lee’s Donuts (the pop-up is in Gastown, so don’t get confused). The beer and peachy take on the donut are available all week, and they’re offering a can-for-a-can in support of the Food Bank (so if you bring a can of food to donate, they’ll give you a beer).
When: Through Monday May 24 from 12:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. dailyWhere: 45 Water StMore Info: peach.gib.ca
