A good place to stop off and just do some solid drinking. A lot of beers to choose from and for 7 bucks you can sample 4 small beers to start things off. There is some snacking food there but mostly you just want to try the plethora of beers there. The staff and service were good too.

Well worth a visit for something a bit different, we were looking for something that would fill an hour or too and came here to try some beers and chill. U can get 4 flights(1/4 pints of different beer)for 7 dollars so a cheap enough excursion for those on a budget and although we didn't eat any food the stuff... More

I was there alone waiting for my late night flight. The beer was very good, we can try several types of beer in small glasses for a very decent price. I had a pizza which was delicious and other plates I saw looked good too. The staff was very friendly.

For those who like brewing , it's a nice place. You can take part in the tour, try some samples- they cam "flight"- 4 types of beer. Try the typical Canadian food- poutine. I ate it there- very good!

I cant say that this is the best beer ive ever had, but i dont really have any complaints. I recommend stopping in for a tasting flight, or a tour if you have time. The tasting flight was $7 i believe and came with 4 5-oz beers. They have 8 standard beers to choose from and then 2 rotation seasonal... More

Based on a recommendation we visited this place and it is definitely worth it. You get to choose four beers from their stock. The menu explains every type and each was better than the other. The accompanying snacks are just right...the charbroiled wings with BBQ are fantastic.

We did their brewery tour which lasted about 20minutes followed by a sample tasting. The guide was very knowledgeable and interesting. Finished with a sample tasting of 3 beers which were very different and tasty. Worth doing whilst visiting Granville Island.

This place has no clue what a brewery is, they are just a cash grab at Granville Island. The employees dont know anything or care about Beer at all, Pretty sure Molsen bought them out and now its all Corporate run. We walked in and were seated at the bar like we wanted, then we sat there for 5 min... More

The four 5 oz beers for $7.00, is such a deal! There are many beers to choose from and most of them were delicious. We ordered a flatbread pizza and the pork sandwich. They were both pretty tasty, but it would have been nice to have a little larger food menu. Our waitress had a great personality and was very... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Granville Island & Fairview
One of the favoured neighbourhoods for a day out, Granville Island's packed theatres and art studios, hobby shops and book stores, restaurants and bars, all offer a plethora of activities and entertainment options, leaving no one bored. The highlight of the area is the Fisherman's Wharf, where the seagulls overhead and the smell of the sea invigorate its many visitors, some of who are there to shop the fresh wares at the public market, and others of whom have arrived to take in the eclectic atmosphere. A popular seafood destination, and Vancouver's leading spot for improv and amateur theatre, Granville Island is an indulgent, welcoming entertainment centre in any season or time of day.
