  • Had a great time at Granville Island Brewing. No longer an independent micro brewery but still great beer and a great room. We felt like we were traveling as I think we were the only locals in the roo...  more »
  • I know it is a brewery and it certainly shows in their actual food. Burgers were so over cooked and dry I nearly sent it back. No one out of the 5 people liked their food.  more »
  • Second time, I’ve been here. Great micro brewery that does excellent selection ales. Winter ale is just ridiculously good and highly recommended. Great little adjoining shop that sells some great bran...  more »

  • The best brewing!! Amazing beers made with so much love!! If you love beer... You must go there!! Cheers
  • For the first time one of my friends from Calgary took me here last year. Since then every time my friends from outside Vancouver/Canada visit here, it's a must to take them to this wonderful brewery, especially in summer. They have so many kinds of beer on tap and always give me a hard time to make up my mind. I normally go with Flight, a pint of Sunshine Coast Hefeweizen or Raspberry Ale. Their potine and tacos were excellent to have with the beer. The staff were friendly and attentive. And very patient with me being indecisive :)
  • Oh So Good! This place was so high on my list, and my word was it everything I had hoped it would be. We arrived at just the right time (the lines get hectic, which we dodged), and had a wonderful lunch. $18 for a flight of beer is stupid great value, and there wasn't a brew that we didn't enjoy. The food was amazing too which helped our love affair. Oh my when can I return!?!
  • Used to make great beers. So-cal Ipa, fresh hop ipa were both terrible. May have helped clean the sink, they were not drinkable.
  • This was a lovely and wonderful brewery! Terrific beer tastings! We tried 10 beers for $18 and weren't let down! If you're in town, come by and check it out. It's in the mix of shops here on Granville island. Also, for us the English bay pale ale tasted just like the maple shack cream ale tasted exactly the same to us. Very interesting to try all the rotating microbrews! See what you taste!
