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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
