If you missed the recent announcement, we're hosting a party this Thursday. In a bid to Make Gastown Great Again, we're throwing open the doors and pouring beers to celebrate our 13th Anniversary. The party will be paired with the brilliant and hyper-colourful work of Vancouver artist, Jean Paul Langlois.
