I have been there a few times before closure. They had some occasional very good beer, but also some less good one (i.e. I know that it had a good reputation, but the brewer didnít have a magic touch). Nevertheless, this one gone, only 2 brewpubs left downtown is really small.

Good brewpub. I enjoyed their Imperial Stout immensely. Iíll have to come back for their renowned IPA and Barley Wine. Very reasonably priced [real] pints - about $4.50. The food is quite good too.

About the same variety of brews on tap as any other Mark James brewpub Iíve visited. Service was good. Food was good and cheap ($6.99 for a decent-sized bowl of Gumbo!). My friend and I came for the IPA (temporarily not available), but the Double IPA was available and was a hit. The interior has a nice, rustic, Western feel to it and I felt at home. Eclectic crowd. Not crowded after work on a Cask Thursday evening.

Nice brewpub with a very friendly service. A lot of hockey fans and drunk people when I was there. Very close to BC Place and GM Place.

I think that Dix has become a go-to stop in Vancouver. The place was my kind of place, well-lit, relaxed, fun. The pool table was there, private tables, artifacts, and of course a great bar and bartender. The brewmaster is within the last year or so transfered from Surrey, and has been given free reign recipe-wise. I liked the offerings, fresh and flavourful,and the Texsas brown shows the industry what can be done to spice up a brown,good show! I thought this to be an above-average brewpub overall. Different ages were here, always a good sign.

As with all the Mark James Group pubs, and perhaps because itís a MJG pub, I have mixed feelings about Dix. When it first opened I was thrilled. They brewed a Vienna Lager that was exquisite from what I remember. Rumor had it the brewmaster was going to specialize in lagers and I got really excited. How many brewpubs around here can make a passable lager let alone this copper-colored gem? Then suddenly *poof* no more Vienna Lager. However, they did brew some consistently drinkable beers (including a lager) that were much better than most MJ overcarbonated swill. Before that I went to Dix a lot, almost once a week. Atmosphere in the early days was so relaxed I thought the pub would go under. Seemed they never made a dime unless it was game night. Then it seemed they got into that whole Red Truck thing and homogenized the selection too much. I grew bored with the pub just as biz started picking up. Then suddenly *poof* again and theyíre doing that Caskival thing now. Been to that a coupla times, had a few very well done IPAs, but was always with the wrong people and unfortunately never got into the social aspect of it Anyway, the service at Dix is usually top-notch, always appreciated that. Wonít comment about the food since Iím not a big meat eater and itís a BBQ joint. Iíve heard itís mediocre. However, Iím not a pure vegetarian and I tried the chili once--fantastic.

I find the food is ussualy better than there beer, which is average at best. I have not been to one of thier weekly caskivals but I find that thier BIG Caskivals are a ripoff. (20 dollars for the right to pay $1 for each 4 oz. sampler. No freebees) I will give them credit for atempting to at least get some interset in the local beer scene. Way too yuppie for me.

Your standard sports bar with not so standard beer. Closes early, even on Friday night, which was a little alarming, but luckily itís walking distance to Steamworks and Yaletown brewpubs! :D I had one of the best tasting beers (Game Day) at this brewpub.

Definitely a sports bar, but clean and well-maintained. Menu is decent, food is quite good (standard fare, a bit on the expensive side) and the beer selection is better than average in that they brew decent beers on-premises. Service was good, except no Interac. I will be happy to visit it for special events, or hunting down the latest local brew on special, but not for any other reason.
