One of my favorite tasting rooms in the west end. Usually quite crowded, especially on weekends. Only has about ten tables so you may find yourself wandering into the small attached shop while you wait for some available seating.

Service was quick and attentive, with food delivered before drinks were more then half finished. Would highly recommend the cheese quesadillas.

Seasonal ales are highly recommended, especially the maple ale. Sampler platter is a great way to taste what they have on tap at the time. All in all a good way to relax after a day of shopping at the market or as a destination itself.

Good experience here to escape some of the other touristy activities. Did a nice range of samples, though none were spectacular I did enjoy nearly all of them. Will come down to Granville Island on future Vancouver visits, so this one is a must stop each time.

Situated right at the entrance of Granville Isle, so hard to miss. When you walk in, the kegs are on the left, the seating and tables are in front of you and the beer sales [take out] is on the right. There are appox. 10 tables for seating.

This is only a tasting room, so you can only have one beer. They do this so that they don't need a liquor license or some such thing.

Anyway, there were about 9 beers on tap when I was there. Including: Island Lager, Cypress Honey, Lions Winter Ale, Brockton, English Bay Pale Ale, Gastown Amber, Kitsilano maple Cream Ale. Decent enough selection, especially considering you can only have one!

Worth stopping in if you are in the area and are curious. You won't stay long...
