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.

The beer "tour" was more of a "Oh, youíre interested in how we brew it, well, um..." however, the fellow working the mash tuns that day was kind enough to allow me to sample half a dozen of their beers for free before deciding on a pint. I had the Rail Ale, but I donít remember it well enough to review it now. We came back the next night and had dinner in the quieter part of the establishment. The food was superb, and prices were borderline reasonable. Iíd like to go back again when they have more beers available for take-home.

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 ;-)

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).

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.

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.

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.

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.
