Big Al's Winter Brew Fest

Big Al's is a rather large and fun filled family joint. Bowling, Pool, and an Arcade to name just a few of the cool things there to do. I find myself going there to watch some good football games and play pool. The prices are good, and there is a decent but small tap selection. I am hoping this upcoming winter beer fest (which is being held there on Nov. 27th from 4-11pm) will inspire a larger more permanent tap selection.

Obviously to many in the Portland area, Vancouver is not really known as a craft beer haven of sorts. But I see a push up this way, and I am guessing Big Al's is trying to snare a piece of that action. I don't have a really good idea on the tap list, but I am guessing there will at least be a dozen good winter beers and seasonal beers on tap.

Don't get me wrong, By The Bottle and Salmon Creek Brew Pub are two killer craft beer spots in Vancouver. I frequent them often. I live in Eastern Vancouver though which really only gives me one option out this way. McMenamins. I was there a couple nights ago though and enjoyed their winter seasonal 'Kris Kringle'. It was strong, hoppy, and quite good. I find myself getting bored with their usual lineup.

From what I have heard, there will be a couple of new start up breweries coming in our very near future up here as well. That sounds good to me.

So come on by Big Al's and bring the family. Bowling there is a blast, and if you are an arcade junkie, you will be entertained. The beers will be flowing, and flowing at a tasty level. I'll be there playing pool most likely...  at least for a little while. There will also be live music that night.
