Summer is in full swing and it is time to hangout with friends again. Great news is that there are many public outdoor areas around the Lower Mainland that now allow you to have crack a couple cold ones while you hangout in the sunshine.

So now that we have our designated areas where we can pop bottles, why not celebrate an anniversary with bubbles in the park. Or maybe book a luxury picnic with all the fixings for a double date. A personal favourite of ours would be to buy single cans of each of your favourite beers and do your own flight tasting. The options are endless and we will definitely be testing out all the ideas for you.

Just a reminder that each of these locations could have slightly different rules around public drinking. Please refer to the signage posted in these locations for regulations. You can also visit the respective city or township websites for the most up to date information on what is allowed. If we all show respect to these parks and this new project, we can hopefully have the cities expand the designated areas. For now let’s cheers to cracking a couple cold ones this summer in the sunshine.
