East Side crawling with beer, bike and art lovers

And four other reasons Vancouver is awesome this week

Art! Bike! Beer!

Turn your Sunday into a celebration of all things beer and art, while pedaling around "Yeast Van." The Eastside Culture Crawl is once again putting on its popular annual Art! Bike! Beer! Crawl. The crawl takes art lovers on a cycling or walking tour of the East Side community, with tasting stops at four breweries, which will be exhibiting art as well. The afternoon in support of the Eastside Culture Crawl is a great way for beer and art lovers to get out and see and taste what's brewing in the neighbourhood.

When: July 14, 1-5 p.m.
