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.

I didn't get the tour or eat anything, but rather stopped in briefly for a flight. The atmosphere was pretty cozy - I really liked the tasting room and service and the Lion's winter warmer was delicious.

Visited with my wife on a stop in Vancouver, June 2016.

Very cool little brewery in the trendy shopping district/market area of Granville Island, Vancouver. They have a pretty nice selection of their own microbrews. The beers were overall well crafted... not overly exciting, mostly straight styles but well made and they looked like they had some more interesting offerings in their bottle shop next door. The service was solid, the food menu is limited but what we had (burger, tacos) were delicious and well made. The only complaint is the lack of seating, and there was already a line out the door by noon on a Saturday. So... it's popular and plan accordingly. Would definitely visit again.

Its right under the bridge that crosses Granville Island and it is Canada's first microbrewery. It is a great spot to rest and have a beer while walking around Granville Island.

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.
