Went for a visit while on the island. Did the full 10 flight which included the seasonal brews. Nice variety and flavours; took home a few from their store. Also nibbled on the charcuterie board; it was pricey for the little amount you get.

First time in this place and like the atmosphere and open space. Despite not being a beer drinker it was interesting to see how the tasters work. The staff was super friendly and knowledgeable.

Came here for a quick trip and enjoyed a sampler. We did not stay long, but I liked the variety of beers that we tried and would happily recommend checking this little place out. Nice and fast service, too!

Busy and popular spot, but worth the wait if you get there and there's a queue... We did the 4 beer Tastings which was awesome, great way to try a very diverse selection and was introduced to some super sweet brews! My favourites were the...More

One of the favoured neighbourhoods for a day out,
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.
