33 Acres has a cool, industrial/retro vibe going on that reminded me of Holy Mountain's tasting room. Good beer selection, friendly staff. The day that I visited they had a couple stouts, a sour, a cider a Belgian and a few hoppy beers. The tasting room seats about 50 and can get a little crowded. They offer jerky and bread as on-site snacks

White tiles and industrially hip tasting room serves a selection of current brews in flights, glasses and pints. Small but functional, the space serves snacks (and a food truck parks outside), espresso (Slayer machine!) and sells 33A wares. Beers available cover a good range of styles and are all solid.

The beers are great, but the vibe is too hipster for me. I'd rather fill my growler and leave than stick around. I hear their brunch is nice, but I haven't tried it yet.

I like this place but it's not the BEST in the area in any particular category. The beers are all good ... but Brassneck and Main St casks are better. The service is good... but Steel Toad is more sharp and friendly and Brassneck and Main St or more beer-geeky. The room is nice...but Main Street is warmer and more relaxing. I'm glad it's around but it's just not my top choice.

I was shocked at how busy this place was on a Saturday afternoon. There was a line almost out the door of people waiting to fill growlers for just about the entire hour I was there. I guess you Vancouverites are into your craft beer scene, nice to see!

I thought the beers were good. I wasn't blown away by anything but I'd be more than happy if this was my neighborhood brewery.

Great beer design. Maybe thats why they keep the place so white. However, drinking beer in an apple store makes me uncomfortable...
