Loved this place and the atmosphere here. Most servers were nice, food menu had a great variety but was still mainly pub food but good price on food. Daily beer specials were good price and the price of a jug was pretty solid at $18. Great place to go with a group of people if in the area. Also have a nice selection in their merch shop and do free brewery tours.

Nice bar, with a patio with a view of "the Chief" (local mountain); canít get much better than that. Decent service. A good selection of their own beers (also bottles available) and a guest tap. Food al-right. My taster of 4 beers was $8; not bad. The beers themselves left something to be desired, though. Each was a little underwhelming. Still, Iíd likely return if I were in Squamish; Iíve had some good beers from these guys in bottles.

Nice country-style place; they have more beers on tap than most brewpubs in BC (last time I was there, maybe a dozen) and even more to take out; I would prefer if they also had 12oz bottles as the 1L flip-flop is more suitable for locals than for travelers. On my second visit I met Franco, the brewer, very nice and helpful. I was also lucky to find the last 8 bottles of Woolly Bugger, then I then started distributing in Europe ;-)

This brewpub is arguably as good as it gets in B.C. if not west of Quebec. A smaller town, about halfway between Whistler and Vancouver. Large room, a patio, a good sized bar. Good beer, including seasonals and the odd weekly cask. Everything available in bottles at some time, mostly 1 litre jugs, and this is the freshest place to get it from. Friendlier than most places I have been to in B.C. to date. Good service, these people actually smile. Lots of parking out front.

Stopped on the way up to Pemberton for an early dinner. Had a sampler of all 13 beers on tap, which was quite an experience. Eat the vegetarian chili, which was amazingly delicious, and would recommend even to non-vegetarians.
Ambiance is meh. Itís a big open alpine lodge style. Not my thing. Lots of TV screens and itís quite loud. Service was fine, selection pretty good - lots of beers on tap. Food seemed to be better than expected, and overall itís not too expensive.

As I was hear in the afternoon, it was pretty quiet, but a nonetheless pleasant atmosphere. Service was attentive and helpful. They had some of their better beers on tap, including Total Eclipse of the Hop Imperial IPA and King Heffy. Very reasonably priced. Would definitely come back if Iím ever in the area.

Went here many years ago. Great hunting-lodge kind of place that was huge compared to the small town of Squamish where itís located. Great atmosphere of wood and animal heads - had a game meat burger that was a little dry for my liking, but otherwise all right. Decent brews on tap, their own of course. Worth a stop for lunch on your way to Whistler.

I am glad I Googled for hotels in Squamish and was able to switch from my reservation at a nearby establishment that was a mere motel for almost the same money. Howe Sound Inn and Brewing Co appears to be popular with locals who like to stop by for a good meal and even better is their own beer. I recommend their beer sampler pack for $7. I liked almost everything that was there, especially their new Raspberry Wheat. Usually I am not a fan of flavored beers but that one was fantastic.
The hotel itsefl is roomy inside and looks more like a very large cabin / mountain resort. We arrived at 5:00 pm, but had to wait a few minutes until our room was ready and the free wireless Internet had intermittent problemsthat required rebooting of their WiFi, but those were the only problems that we had encountered. Nice breakfast in the morning (somewhat similar to what you get at Hampton Inns).
