This was our first stop in Vancouver and what a way to start. Great value for sample beers. It's. Dry busy so expect to wait about 15-20 mites for a seat.

We went here at 12 noon one day and the place was buzzing. They have a selection of ten draft beers and a really quirky place-mats to put them on so you don't forget the name of each beer. We didn't have food here but people sitting facing us who we got talking to do and they really enjoyed it.... More

I would recommend this place for beer and maybe the soup which according to my better half was good but the hamburger came with a coal black beef patty. Had to cut the edges off. The middle was only slightly charred. Still a nice place.

We stopped at GIB after a long day in Stanley Park, staff were very helpful in getting us a table for 4. We used the opportunity to take a flight (4) beers to sample their local products. Small batch Saison is a must-taste, the honey beer a good second. Menu offers limited choice, however quality of food is great. We... More

We stopped here for a beer(s) while visiting Montreal. I had their Granville Island Brewing Red Ale and enjoyed it. Friendlly service. I look forward to trying some of their other beers and hope to visit their Brewery sometime in the future. We did not eat here so cannot comment on the food.

This was a great pit stop on our wander around Granville Island. We bought the full quota of 10 sample craft beers, which sat in the mat that described each one. All were delicious, different and most enjoyable!

A good place to stop off and just do some solid drinking. A lot of beers to choose from and for 7 bucks you can sample 4 small beers to start things off. There is some snacking food there but mostly you just want to try the plethora of beers there. The staff and service were good too.

Well worth a visit for something a bit different, we were looking for something that would fill an hour or too and came here to try some beers and chill. U can get 4 flights(1/4 pints of different beer)for 7 dollars so a cheap enough excursion for those on a budget and although we didn't eat any food the stuff... More

I was there alone waiting for my late night flight. The beer was very good, we can try several types of beer in small glasses for a very decent price. I had a pizza which was delicious and other plates I saw looked good too. The staff was very friendly.

For those who like brewing , it's a nice place. You can take part in the tour, try some samples- they cam "flight"- 4 types of beer. Try the typical Canadian food- poutine. I ate it there- very good!

Neighbourhood Profile
Granville Island & Fairview
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 wares at the public market, and others of whom have arrived to take in the eclectic atmosphere. A popular seafood destination, and Vancouver's leading spot for improv and amateur theatre, Granville Island is an indulgent, welcoming entertainment centre in any season or time of day.
