Has to easily be the best spot in Vancouver for great beer, excellent food, and knowledgeable staff. It shows these guys love beer with thoughtful attention paid to both local beer and regionally sourced food. Three rotating import guest taps (they had Rogue Dry Hopped Red, Anderson Hop Ottin, and North Coast Red Seal) and the ability to order a flight (4 samples) of any of their 19 taps.

Only caveat: Do not walk two blocks south after an evening of extended pints as you'll wander into Main & East Hastings where you're liable to end up in a dumpster never to be heard from again...just sayin'

Definitely spend your money here next time you're in Vancouver. (664 characters)

I stumbled across this place in an article when researching my trip to Vancouver, and am I ever glad that I did. I had the opportunity to go on a Friday evening. The place was packed. There were three bars in here and my friend and I were lucky enough to find a couple seats.

The beer menu was phenomenal. It was tough to select a few beers to try. My palate had grown weary of the IPA's, amber ale, and pale ales that were prevalent in the Pacific Northwest. I was happy to see a wide variety of styles. I had a porter, pumpkin stout, barrel aged wheat wine, a Flanders red. They were all great. The bartender was friendly and knowledgeable.

The only drawback to the experience was the guy I sat next to. He seemed mentally unstable. When he went to the restroom one of the bartenders asked if he was bugging me and offered to remove him from the premises. I was having such a great time trying the beers that he was merely a minor annoyance to my evening.

I ordered the bison cheese steak sandwich. I'm not gonna lie. I don't remember how it tasted. It just soaked up some of the fantastic beers that I was trying. But it's probably safe to say that it was great considering how awesome everything else was.

I really liked this place and wish I would have had a couple nights to sit in this place and try more of the beer and food. I would go back any chance that I had. It was THE highlight of my trip to the northwest. (1,430 characters)
