1957 Chevy Copic Marker Sketch by Terry Leonard
Mountain Paradise Show & Shine
Despite the threat of rain, downtown Revelstoke streets were full of classic cars and trucks. Everyone was happy to once again showing their spectacular autos. This is a wonderful setting and is truly a mountain paradise. Timed nicely with the Farmers Market gave this show it’s own intimate personality. Approximately 200 vehicles braved the weather and helped make this event a success.
Mt. Begbie Brewing Company
This is by far one of my favourite breweries! I personally make a point of stopping by as often as I can when passing through Revelstoke. The Brewery located at 2155 Oak Drive It is a little bit hidden gem just 6 minutes East of downtown on Hwy #1 (Look for the Coast Hillcrest Hotel signs) We took advantage of their tasting room to fill some growlers, taste some new offings and ordered Pepperoni & Mushroom pizza severed as a Calzone (Sliced pepperoni, mozza cheese, red onions & mushrooms) Did I say I love their pizza? Our server Anika was fantastic and pleasant as was all the staff! There is a store front where you can buy swag and beer even if the tasting room isn’t open (check their website for hours) Click here
Absolutely the best place to stop in Revelstoke!
The Joy of Thirst!
Excellent selection of beers!
For my flight we tried the Powerhouse Pale Ale 4.7% alc./vol. IBU 18 This English style pale ale has a light taste with smooth yet distinctive character. Brave Liver Scotch Ale 6.5% alc./vol. is smooth and full-bodied. It’s easy drinking strong beer with a hint of caramel. Our other two selections came from their Experimental Beers Hoppy Thoughts -Citra IPA 8% alc./vol IBU 50 Hoppy Endings – Cold IPA 8% alcohol IBU 50 both were extremely tasty I enjoyed them both
