  • Took a guided tour of the facility. Guide explained the brewing process along with sharing many other interesting facts. We sampled three beer after the tour in the sampling room. The facility is really cool. Small but effective brewery. Loved the tour and the beer.
  • Very nice brewery. Can see where they make their small batch beers, have tours at brewery and have a nice gift shop attached. Great location on Granville Island. Decent beer.
  • Great beer. My favourite is the Heyday hefeweizen. The food was surprisingly good. I did not expect the food to taste as good as a fine dining restaurant. My wife had a burger. The ground beef tasted real fresh, I believe they make it in house. The pulled pork was very moist with a very tasty BBQ sauce. Both dishes have generous servings. Would definately come again, next time friends and order a pitcher of beer.
  • Great place to try some solid beers. Not a ton of room so can fill up quickly. Sat at the bar and had super quick service. Definitely would recommend trying the rotating small batch taps.
  • There is a wait to get inside, but it's not very long. Service was quick, and the food was delicious. We ordered a pizza and a charcuterie board. The one disappointing aspect was the beer itself. I've had better beer elsewhere, and for all the hype surrounding it, it didn't deliver. Everything else about the brewery is awesome though, and you should definitely check it out.
