I really like this place and wish I had come here earlier in my trips. Besides being way out there it is right on a subway stop, so reasonably accessible if you make it the focus of the evening. Service was just ok, which was too bad considering all it had to offer. Food was stellar, so much so that I would go just for a meal. Beer was good, the taps are better than the cans. Seasonal I had was very good. But choice is limited. Not a must go but you will not be disappointed.

Some of the beers at Central City are above-average. The IPAs tend to be good. Still, itís not a very good place. Staff can be woefully uneducated. For example, I just phoned to inquire about the Double Crown I2PA. The woman who answered the phone said Whatís that? However, it depends on who you get because many staff members are cool. Iíve been down there several times for beers and have even bought a keg from them for a party. Central City a large, expansive, modern brewery located in a brand new mall.

The brewpub is pretty standard in terms of appearance - gleaming, but charmless, with big open spaces, televisions, etc. Thatís fine -we all know I prefer wood, brick and coziness. The service at the bar was good, the wait staff seemed lost in the open spaces and never managed to notice the new customer standing there. The beer is really a waste of Gary Lohinís talents. The Wheat is acceptable, the Red quite good. The lighter stuff is well-made, but the heavier (Pale, Porter) is poor. Easy to reach right across from Surrey Central Skytrain station, but I canít even declare it the best brewpub in Surrey.

2011-08. Apart from my older comments, I add that it was difficult at the bar to get some clarity about some IPA that has been circulating at festivals and outside pubs; it seems that only the brewer knows...
2011-03. At least now they have information about the regular beers. The staff seem not knowledgeable about their beers, mostly about the seasonals and one-offs. For a brewery with a good reputation, they should improve the information about beers. Food was quite tasty.
2010-03. Modern brewpub, chaotic; and also the tap list is not available, nor the bartender knows anything about it, besides being a nice guy.

Modern brewpub that is not targeted to the average craft beer lover, but more like a sports bar. Decent selection of Central Cityís beers, though their new location is much better for that. Food is okay - standard stuff. Prices are quite reasonable and the service is quite good.

This is probably one of the best looking brewpubs Iíve ever been in. The place is gigantic, but it still manages to feel intimate. Food was good, but the beers were quite average. I liked the stout and the Red ale. The service was okay, but our waiter was completely incompetant. If you go, try the calzone... it was tasty.

Brewpub in the center of Surrey. Sports bar feel. It took me about 20 minutes or so to get here from downtown Vancouver on the Sky Train. Get off at the Surrey Central station. They had Nine of their own beers on tap the night I visited. Overall, the beers were a bit above average compared to the other beers Iíve had in British Columbia. We had nachos that were actually pretty top notch. Fresh salsa and guacamole. The service was good. They sell four of their beers at the brewpub in six pack cans.

A modern, bright and lively atmosphere with a large pink "open labia" bar containing 16 taps with 8 styles. Brewer and co-owner GaryLohin is a very friendly and optimistic personality whoíll hopefully keep the reigns on the brewing styles, and profits from, this humongous outfit adjacent to the newest campus for Simon Fraser - Surrey. My biggest complaint is the food - the recommended appetizers in the local Beer Guide are no longer on the menu - so I had the Prawns Topaz ($8.95) and the Drunk City Chicken ($12.95). The Prawns were a tiny portion while the Drunk Chicken, though ample in size, was terribly bland. The beer did live up to expectation - I loved the beers with the German malts and mild hops.

This place is huge!! Several different areas including the bar, a pool table area, a terraced night club area, and an indoor sidewalk cafe. Apparently 4.5 mil was spent. Taps are limited to their own, macros only in bottles and every liquor known to man. The Wallys Wheat,Boomers Red and the Stout are all worthwhile. They have a cool 2.95 gal take home keg in the liquor store. Jan 08: Food quality has gone downhill, prices are up and the menu choices have been reduced
