Huge friggin location right in the middle of the square in the Olympic Village. Weirdly, they only want you to enter around the back side of the building on 1st Street. Oh well.

This place is almost exactly like a Yard House here in the US. Eerie similarity, in fact. Selection is quite large, but the beers are all things that I recognized from just about every other mediocre bar in town, so I wouldnít come here expecting much in the way of new stuff unless youíre a visitor like me. They also only do pre-determined flights, which is annoying.

Pricing is fairly average for the city. Decent enough service. Nice industrial sort of decor, but the feel is kind of sterile and corporate at the same time.

Okay place if youíre near here, but I wouldnít make a special trip.

Huge place with huge tap list, but beer selection is pretty standard. Only a few rotations. Unfortunately many other smaller places have more interesting selections. On the plus side, lots of local beers, so a great place for folks not familiar.

This place is huge. Massive taplist full of locals and Pacific Northwest US beers. Decent food available, but too bad the place is quite pricey in general and you can only get pre-selected samplers. So if you are only looking to get new ticks, this is not the best place in Vancouver for that.

Giant actually looks really gorgeous. The building is genius, and it sits on stilts so when you go downstairs to the facilities you see all that in the basement. They clearly studied at the Yard House because the place is almost exactly the same. The good thing is that there are a lot of local beers. People might complain about not being able to tick as much as theyíd like, and thatís fair, but unlike at YardHouse there are a lot of good beers available that I would personally want to consume. Combine that with its location down the street from me and Iím sure Iíll be there a lot. Every Tuesday anyway, when the prices come down to earth and the cask comes on at 4pm.

Gorgeous historic saltworks building, exposed piping, industrial chic unfortunately marred by corporate management. Gender segregated, with only male barmaids and only female table waiters feels creepy. Bartenders are godawful, ranging from phony to downright rude depending on who you get. Hostesses the same, terrible attitude and after a half-dozen visits that left me not feeling happy. Decent beer selection with a few local taps but they could do better with that too given the real estate they have the selection is actually not that good. Tuesdays is $2 off all taps. A complete ripoff on the Yardhouse concept, to the point where youíd think this was Yardhouse owned. Food is risky. All things considered, this is a welcome addition to Vancouver. Itís a love/hate with me because I live stumbling distance and canít keep away but I donít actually like the place. For big and corporate beer bars, I prefer Tap & Barrel, and they have a real outdoor patio too.

Huge, expansive place in the Olympic Village with room for over 300 people. Despite this, we waited nearly an hour for a table. Interior is very pleasant, with an extremely high, warehouse-like ceiling. About 140 beers on tap on our visit, most of which are NOT rotating, 12 of which ARE rotating. For an extreme beer geek like myself, the selection, while extensive, wasnít anything that special. This place definitely caters to the beer noob. There are only two preset flights / tasters (you canít customize) and no small pours, though they will give you free samples. Prices are high, even for Vancouver, for some of the imports. Food is quite good, though as my girlfriend and I are vegan, there is not really anything for us, so they customized - no vegan options in a Vancouver craft beer joint? Címon! Service couldnít have been better - very friendly, attentive and accommodating. Recommended for a visit, but I doubt weíll be here very often.
