A Casual Gathering

The Moon Under Water Brewpub

Let's get together at our newest brewpub on a lazy Saturday afternoon. This meetup is just for regular discussion, mingling, and good times - just hang out! Note that the venue has limited capacity and no projectors or anything, it's just an awesome pub. If you don't RSVP, there's no guarantee there'll be seating for you (or you might have to sit all alone at another table!) *Be aware that this is a pub, so you must be of legal drinking age to attend (which is 19 years old in BC)*
