This is just an overpriced beer attraction. If you know anything about beer you will discover that this isn't for connoisseurs. Drink Coors Lite? You'll feel at home here... We had to wait to be seated, though the place wasn't full, the service was poor,...More

I went here as a networking event. The charcuterie board was pretty good. The flight of beers was the way to go. Their chocolate tasting beer, fruity beers, etc was really good. The two tour guides were pretty funny and entertaining.

Poutine is its own food group in Canada & they do it justice here at GIB. With good beer tastings and flights this is a fun brewery to eat a full meal or stop by for appetizers & drinks!

I came here with a couple friends and sat at the bar. Got the pleasure of being served by Elizabeth! She was super friendly and knowledgeable. We got the full map and loved trying all the different beers offered here! Thanks for the great time.

Popped in here on our spontaneous tour of Granville Island and left a bit tipsy after trying the whole flight of 6 island beers and 3 guests beers. Popular place- queueing out the door shortly after we arrived

Granville Island's packed theatres and art studios,
hobby shops and book stores, restaurants and bars, all
offer a plethora of activities and entertainment
options, leaving no one bored. The highlight of the
area is the Fisherman's Wharf, where the seagulls
overhead and the smell of the sea invigorate its many
visitors, some of who are there to shop the fresh

Tried it and it's awesome, you get three samples and a tour of their smaller brewery. It's interesting to learn about the process. I'd suggest grabbing lunch there too.
