#YVRBeerTweetup Launch - Doolin’s Irish Pub

The first ever #YVRBeerTweetup was held Wednesday, February 1st and what a success it was!

View pictures of the event here.

We’d like to thank everyone who donated prizes to give away: @XianDovet, Granville Island Brewing, Central City Brewing, Legacy Liquor Store, NightOutVancouver.com and Doolin’s Irish Pub for hosting the event!

For those who couldn’t make it, we had special #YVRBeerTweetup Beer Flights for $10.

Beers from the flight: Phillips Blue Buck , Russell Black Death Porter, Mission Springs Fatguy Oatmeal Stout, + the Mission Springs Strongman Ale!

The Strongman Ale was brand new and an exclusive for the event!

When we started planning, our expectations were for about 40-50 people over the 3 hours. In the end we had almost 100 people turn out and the whole back half of Doolin’s was packed all night!

Not only was the space full of great people having a blast drinking craft beer, but finally meeting people they’ve gotten to know over twitter. Our biggest surprise of the night was the Twitter hashtag for the event ‘#YVRBeerTweetup’ trended across Canada!

We’d like to thank everyone for coming out and helping spread the word. We hope you had as much fun as us!

The next #YVRBeerTweetup is March 7th Malone’s Urban Drinkery at Seymour and Pender, mark it down on your calendar. It’s going to be a great time!

Cheers everyone!
