O'Hare's GastroPub is hosting an ode to barley and hops to mark Vancouver Craft Beer Week later this month.

The event begins at the Steveston pub Saturday, May 19 at 6 p.m. with Russell Brewing and North Coast Brewing taking over the taps.

Each brewery will be showcasing their special selections, including a special cask of Russell Imperial/Double IPA made exclusively for the event. Russell brewmaster Jack Bensley will be on hand to tap the cask at 7 p.m.

Grant Bryan of O'Hare's said his pub has been instrumental driving the craft beer agenda forward.

"Craft Beer is undoubtedly the beer of the future and it’s so cool to have so many awesome breweries right here in B.C.," he said.

Tastings of various craft beers will be featured at the free event.

From Russell, there will be Blood Alley Bitter, A Wee Angry Scotch Ale, IP'eh and Black Death Porter. Offerings from North Coast Beers include Acme California IPA, PranQster, Le Merle Saison and Old Rasputin Russian Imperial Stout.

Door prizes, gift certificates and other giveaways will be on tap, and the adjoining liquor store will also offer a selection of beers for tasting.

The event is one of 60 on tap for Vancouver Craft Beer Week, which runs May 18 to 26.

O'Hare's is located at 5031 Steveston Hwy.
