This place was a real surprise because they have completely revamped their beer list (new brewer?) to the point where they have a Berliner, a Brett sour, a rye IPA, a genuinely lager made with bright NZ + new world hops, and more. The atmosphere is still...what it is...but if you happen to be anywhere in the area (eg. Four Winds) definitely pop by and see what theyíre up to. They have a weekday happy hour but the prices are reasonable and they are generous with their tasters.

An entertainment complex with a lodge like rest/bar. Beer here is much worse than the other location as there are no guests and their stuff leaves much to be desired. Service was nice, but not beer centric. Lots of ticks with 8 on tap, but not worth it in my book.

Standard sports bar amidst an entertainment area (close to a big cinema and connected to a bowling alley). Beer quality is very average - doesnít even seem like a place that cares about the beer. Didnít eat here, but looks like standard pub fare - very little in the way for vegetarians/vegans. If you really want the ticks, may as well stop in if itís not out of your way, but thereís nothing impressive here.

Located in a huge entertainment area, this has little appeal as brewpub; indeed they donít seem to care much about the beers, and they propose all the same ones with one occasional seasonal (this time a bad one). Only good point, the smell of barley from the mash tun.

If youíre hungry & thirsty Big River can help. Food is goo pub food and for beer they do brew some of their own which are only available on site. The do sell some bombers (4) for off site sales. Have a family, they do have a family section. Want to bowl (5 or 10 pin) they are located in the same building as Zone bowling (40 lanes). you can have a brew & snacks while bowling.

A great spread in... okay, lets not fool ourselves, its in the middle of a field. In a couple of years perhaps the traffic will boost this establishment but right now it seems starved to entertain. I love the bowling alley in the back with the shared washrooms. I wish I couple have had something like this when living in Montreal as I did both (drink and bowled) when I was 15. Someone should seriously look at this place for office parties - its got TVs for sports and bowling next door!!!

The brewer Damon was very hospitable - though I hope he gets more of a hand in the brewing process as something seems to be curbing his art. The ESB, Nut Brown and Winter Seasonal were all good though I was surprised by the Pale Ales showing. If it takes more Lagers and Pilsners for him to gain free reign than set him free! The Cobb Salad a la BLTC was very enjoyable - as was local RBer Crit.

Always have great service, even with the turnover in staff. Always enjoy talking with Damon. Food has always been good (a little pricey). The beers have always been good when I have been there.

Very strange place, massive bar/restaurant with an equally large patio. Gives you a great view of the attached mall/entertainment complex. The bar itself is attached to a bowling alley. I only had the garlic fries, which were pretty funny, a few fries with a few cloves of garlic chopped over them... a five year old could be more imaginitive than that. Beers are okay, the ESB and stout are solid efforts.

Oakes  (769) Vancouver, British Columbia | January 12, 2005| Updated July 3, 2005
A sports bar/mid-range restaurant/bowling alley combo, so atmospherically itís a little weak. Service is reasonable, though they poured the brown with a massive shot of yeast and didnít notice nor grasp why that was wrong. The lagers are avoidable but the ales have made great strides since my last visit and I look forward to trying them again. Bottles and kegs are available to go. The food, sadly, is institutional frozen Sysco garbage and thus way overpriced.

The potato and ale soup is fabulous. Most of the seasonals are slightly funky, trying for mass appeal, but the Brown is good, and Damonís ESB keeps getting better and better. The Stout is also steadily improving
