My friend and I stopped here on are way back down from Whistler for a pint or two. It was a little chilly inside so we had kept our jackets on. I asked for a flight of beer and I got Bear Paw Honey Lager, Whistler brewing company lager, and chestnut ale. I was surprised but I liked Bear Paw... More

Great brewery with a basic food menu but then on the other hand that's not why you come here. Beer is great with a sampling room.

It's located in an industrial area off the main highway. Seems like a lot of locals. Good variety of beers. Really inexpensive flights at $10.50cdn. They also fill growlers. Some food but probably better to eat before or after.

Love this place. It was packed on the long weekend. The interior was renovated from my last visit. Nice lay out. When it's busy it's tuff to get fast service. So be patient it's well worth the wait. Did two flights to sample all the beers. That made it fun! Only 10$ for a flight. Had hot salty pretzel with... More

It was after 4.00 pm so ideal for a beer. And what better way than to combine it with a tour of the small brewery at Function Junction. Fun spiel by the guide and a taste of four beers. Great time was had by all. Recommended.

Due to the beer festival and my booking many months ahead, what should have been a group tour ended up a private tour. We had a great time. My husband and I were picked up at our hotel in Creekside, which was great. We stopped at several breweries and there are many samples to be had!

We almost walked out of here without even trying the beers, the service is that terrible. The people working their were rude and unhelpful. When we eventually got a 4 beer flight to try, we discovered some rather mediocre beers, with only the IPA standing out with any character. Maybe we were just too bitter about the service. We wouldn't... More

Maybe it's the fact that anything tastes good after a day on the slopes, or that visitors will drink any swill put in front of them so long as it's cold and bubbly, but amonst all the things that Whistler's got going for it, a good beer culture is NOT one of them. The Whistler Brewing Company is fighting the... More

We came with a group of friends for a beer and a bite. The bar staff told us it would be an hour wait for food because everyone was ordering wraps and each wrap takes 10 minutes to make. I'm sorry but if your cook takes 10 minutes to make 1 wrap, you need to find a new cook. It... More
