Scope and content

Series consists of records relating to historical enquiries made or received by Evans and his activities as an historical consultant on a number of projects.

Activities documented include design projects incorporating historical materials for brewpubs and breweries (Spinnakers and Moon Under Water in Victoria, Longwood in Nanaimo, the Vancouver Island Brewery); his work as historical interpretive consultant for the Arbutus Greenway Residential Project in Vancouver that redeveloped the old Vancouver Breweries site at 11th Ave. and Vine St. in 1999; a proposal to the BC Trade and Investment Office to develop a resource guide promoting BC brewing expertise to potential clients in Japan; and his correspondence with brewers, breweries, collectors, associations, and other brewing historians on topics relating to beer history.

Records includes correspondence, notes, and working papers; agreements, invoices, and work orders; brewery promotional material; copies of newspaper and periodical articles; copies of fire insurance plans (sections), historical photographs, and archival materials; and a copy of the Fall 1996 BCL Guide containing Evans' article "When Everything Old is New Again: The Tradition of Brewing in BC" (file 10).
