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!
Over in Railtown is the Settlement Building. What initially started out as an urban winery, has now grown to accommodate a restaurant, brewery and winery all under one roof. Postmark Brewing makes delicious beer that you can enjoy in the beautiful space, while tucking into Belgard Kitchen's tasty food.
Sometimes you want to keep it simple and when the mood strikes, Hastings Mill Brewing Company (what used to be Pat's Pub and Brew House) has a seat with your name on it. Located on East Hastings, this space has been around since 1914. What started as the Patricia Cafe where jazz music filled the room is now one of the city's most charming pubs. It's nothing fancy, but the beer is cold, the music's live, and the history's rich.
