A freshly poured cold pint of beer? You don't have to ask us twice. From lively spots where you can catch some live music to cozy spaces that are perfect for hangouts with friends, Vancouver has plenty to offer. Pair your beer with some delicious bites and you're set.

In East Vancouver, you'll find a number of microbreweries where you can grab a seat, a nibble and a sipper. It's at these microbreweries that you'll get to try unique blends that you won't find anywhere else. When you find something you like, fill a growler to take home and enjoy. 33 Acres Brewing Co opens pretty early and closes late so check them out throughout the day. They're brunch is pretty great!

It's nothing fancy, but the beer is cold, the music's live, and the history's rich.
