Several things to mention here. First, you wonít find any Sailor Hagarís beers here. You have to go to Hagarís for those. After the stunning drive up from Vancouver, you settle into the clean, sunlight wooden pub and look out at the Stawamus Chief. Pretty cool right there. The beer isnít bad - all the ones Iíve had lately are in the good/very good range. You can buy them to go as well. Food is okay pub food, but nothing special any of the times Iíve visited. Worth the drive up from the city, or the stop on your way to/from Whistler.

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.

Fairly typical pub decor, with lots of wood. Food is typical of a BC pub, not bad, not good. The beer is average to a bit better than average. Worth checking out if youíre between Whistler and Vancouver. At any particular time, they may only have three, but may have as many as six beers going. I like that they have everything in 1L flip-top bottles to go.

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.

I had the Steak Sandwich which was open faced and fairly yummy - and came with a side-order of yammer fries. The beer selection was pretty incredible 9 beers on tap and another one available in the one-litre swing-top bottle. The best beer was definitely the ESB.

Only 4 beers when I was there, rather limited for a brewpub. Some of the food was very good, the rest barely average.
Staff was friendly enough, but the service wasnít particularly good.
Beer is considerably better than what I have had in bottles and at festivals.

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.

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.

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.
