Vlog 6: Yoho National Park and the Yoho Snakebite

Yoho National Park and the Nimble Crew

After some epic adventures in the west, we ventured farther into Canada’s heartland to Yoho National Park. The park borders Banff in the east and Kootenay in the south, and was the second national park to be created in Canada. To honor the rich heritage of this beautiful land, we created a mixed drink. What else were you thinking? A sandwich? Come on. You should know us by now. 

The Yoho Snakebite

Recipe:

4oz Lager, drier the better (We used Kokanee due to limited selection)

4oz Apple cider, drier the better. We used Rock Creek in the video.

Sweeten with spruce tip syrup.

Garnish with spruce tips.

 

 

Nathan teaches Kyle the art of eating sunflower seeds

This, folks, is a significant right of passage. If you, like Kyle, are unfamiliar with the art and science of eating (and then spitting) sunflower seeds, have a watch. This is one skill you must master.

Vlog 4: Vancouver Cocktails: A Whirlwind Tour

Vancouver cocktails: a few of our favorite things

First stop, The Modern Bartender. What good is a cocktail expert without his tools? I’m not exactly sure, but he won’t be mixing drinks. This great little shop on E. Pender in has everything you need to craft amazing beverages. It’s basically a candy store for the cocktail obsessed.

Next up, Whiskey Wiseman Nick Harborne took us to the Irish Heather. Here, we met possibly the most knowledgable whiskey expert we’ve ever seen. We then crafted a smokey cocktail we affectionately named Camp Vickie (it has Miss Vickie’s potato chips in it!!!).

The Shameful Tiki was our third stop, and we’d definitely recommend a visit. Check out our linked post for full details on the amazing tiki vibe.

And what would an exploration of Vancouver cocktails be without a trip to Keefer Bar, one of the world’s 50 top cocktail bars?

We then made a custom cocktail to embody the awesome hippie vibe of Kitsilano. Check it out.

Want some bartending training? Check out Ryan Boyd’s Fine Art Bartending schools in Vancouver or Calgary.

And we saw some bears.

Vlog 3: Disc Golf On Pender Island

Pender Island

We took a ferry to Pender Island, got some disc golf practice, and had an amazing meal. Check out what a Nimble night of disc golf and cocktails looks like.

Pender Island actually hosts one of the most unique disc golf courses in the world. It’s situated in the Strait of Georgia, so you’ve gotta take a boat to get there. When it’s not raining out, the island boasts perfect summer weather.

I think our highlights included the intense glamping with good food, the peace we always experience in nature, and trick shots from our OneWheels. Want to meet us on a future outdoor adventure? Let us know. We’re filling out summer with nature, travel, and cocktails.

Vlog 1: Cross-Canada Road Trip

Welcome to Nimble Bar TV! We’re about to leave on our road trip across Canada and want to share a bit of our vision first. In this very first episode of our vlog, we’ll take you through the story of the idea from concept to reality, a bit about what we do as a company, and what you can expect from Nimble Bar TV.

Video Index

00:00 Our cross-country idea: How Reese’s crazy concept convinced us to do something big. Still not sure if a road trip is the best idea, but there’s only one way to find out!

02:40 Doing the hard thing first: Apparently this is a trend for us. We shot our first video in the dark and in the woods. Now we’re setting out for weeks on the road.

03:29 What we do: First, we’re digital storytellers who focus your business’ unique character. Second, we consult bars and restaurants to improve margins and training. Third, we throw awesome private parties for individuals and organizations.

04:40 Bespoke cocktails: First we understand your restaurant as deeply as possible. Then we encapsulate that in a never-before-seen cocktail unique to you. And we capture it on digital media and help you share it with the world.

05:45 High-quality, authentic storytelling: Most video seems hollow. It misses the point. Even if the video looks really, really good, many times you just don’t care. It’s empty. That’s because the video feels inauthentic and it doesn’t share your restaurant’s story — your brand. We tell your story like no one else can.

08:30 What our YouTube channel is about: We share segments on bespoke cocktails connected back to the earth. We share segments on our epic road trip and adventures, and we share videos we’ve produced for local restaurants.
