New, trendy decor. This is the upscale replacement of the infamous dive, known as 57 Below. A smaller bar than itís predecessor. JEFF is the friendly, outgoing late barkeep. The early one is KATE. Small but interesting tap selection. Decent bottled selection. More impressions to come!

Lots of potential, just an identity crisis. Quain and small, but littered with TVs and loud music. Beer paraphanilia everywhere but a pedestrian selection, mainly PNW. They have a cheap macro which is significantly cheaper than all else. A bit of a disappointment. Food specials are disappointing. A new direction would do wonders.

Good place in New Westminster for BC and some US crafts. Generally a couple of harder to get items that have already been depleted at the stores.

Brings a tear to me eye to see a good beer bar in New West, a city in which I lived for several years. Now Iíd probably only see the place if I was meeting my brother, who still inhabits the area. Hops is a typical corporate BC pub, but they have a good range of beer, I found several new ones when I popped in, and they have taster paddles. So Iím definitely a fan.

Woody and cozy. The service is a bit brisk. They have a couple of micros on draught, but a good selection of local micros in bottle. In this area itís probably one of the few choices, probably the best; but if you are in Vancouver downtown, you will hardly find something new here.

I donít hate the place. It just has a very small tap selection. Itís not cozy and has not much atmosphere. The bottle selection is better than the tap selection but then youíre breaking the bank. Food and service were ok.
