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.

I've been to Vancouver many times over the years, and always wanted to stop by this place. Finally, on this trip, had a free couple of hours and walked on over. Glad I did.

First, I got there b before 11 a.m. on a Sunday. Many tables taken with people eating brunch. They all looked happy. I sat at the bar, about 10 chairs, which were all empty when I arrived. Relatively small place. Nice vibe. Funky.

About 40 beers on tap, mostly local. Very nice. The bar person, Francesca [I think] was exceptional. During my time there, I watched her do her job. Very professional. Very busy going around. Enjoyable to watch someone who takes pride in there work. She recommended a couple of beers, which I tried. Very nice.

Overall, a very pleasant experience. I'll definitely stop in the next time I'm in Vancouver. Worth the visit.

Can't say enough good things. Fortunate enough to go on a British Columbia takeover so everything was super local and many were things that would have taken several days in B.C. to have tried.

Beer was incredible.

Service fantastic and food was on par with beer. Just on edge of Gastown and the trains going back and forth behind just add to the character.

A must visit in Vancouver if into beer and food is top notch. A 5$ (ca) 13oz pour for most everything a bonus.
