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.

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.

Located just as you enter Granville island this is a bit of a tourist trap, where you will wait in a line for a single paid taste. Limited seating and limited beer options you will need to get the sampler to try more than one beer. Service was not very good and the beers were average. My wife and I were there for Canada day and were not impressed with the service. This was the only bc brewery that I did not get beer to go Or anything to remember our trip

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...

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.
