A large brewing facility/restaurant/pub. The place is divided into a dining room which is child friendly and a pub. Decor is interesting, lots of old antique signs, tools, hardware etc tacked to the walls, always something to look at. A few tvs in the pub, also has a patio. Food is solid pub fare - wood oven pizza, burgers, wings etc. Beer selection is decent with about a dozen of their own brews on and a few local guest taps. The house beers are medicore to good, worth trying for a tick anyway. Flights are availbe - 4 40z glasses for about the price of a pint. Service was sadly very slow, and our server was not very attentive. It was quite a busy Sat night when I visited, so maybe not the best night to visit. Other things to note - they have a small cooler with bombers available for purchase, and there is a liquor store attached, which I did not visit.Overall I liked the ambiance and the beers were OK. Overall I liked this place and would revisit if I was in the area again, they need to improve their service though.
A typical American truck-stop feel of a brewpub with a large interior including a bar area and plenty of seating room. Tried all the beers on tap and unfortunately wasn’t impressed with any of it, with several even having some infection issues. Didn’t try the food. Service is extremely friendly though. Prices are very reasonable. No reason to come here unless you’re in the area and you want some ticks.
A ramshackle lodge type with a large restaraunt and bar and a great view. The decor is garage sale. Service is decent but nothing outstanding and beers are their local brews with 4 guest taps which is nice. They have a tasting flight and their beer is OK. Food is pretty good bar food and prices are decent. A bit out of the way, and not sure if I would make a specific trip, but would stop in if in the area.
2011-08. They even seem to reduce further their beers, and instead complement with Granville and others; some day they will just stop brewing. The food is very commonly cooked. 2010-03. The beer selection is not huge nor exciting: 5 beers, of which one is a "mix"; the Oatmeal Stout and IPA are well drinkable, the others are less interesting; but we enjoyed a lot the country style of this place!
Visited about 10 times during the last 8 years, last time in july 2009 and will be back for christmas this year.
Great atmosphere, good service. Ask for samplers (free, about 2 oz) of the current selection on tap before commiting to a beer. Regular beers are ok, I quite like the Fat Guy Stout. Good pub food, I can recommend their ribs and nachos.
Visit this brewpub for the atmosphere if nothing else. The beers on tap are usually average, but some are a notch above that. Food is not so great, but the sprawling array of railroad-themed kitch is enough eye candy to keep the whole family happy. Service is relaxed but as friendly as it gets. Extra points for their free (!) sampler set of house brews. This is a very unpretentious place. Overall, I love this place because of the atmosphere and would go often if I lived in Mission. As one of the few brewpubs in the Lower Mainland it is worth driving out to for a beer adventure :-)
Biggish place with lots of wood trim throughout. Patio right by the river is nice, although I can’t understand why two-thirds of it is under permanent cover. Service was friendly enough, but not exactly speedy. The beers were pretty good. The attached bottle shop doesn’t really seem to care too much about moving their product, since when I was there there were only about 4 bottles of Mission Springs stuff. Still, worth checking out.

The stout and brown are very good. The service ranges from good to absolutely horrible, decor is rather country hick style mostly.Food is average to good.
Sept 22/07:The beer quality has certainly deteriorated since my last visit, however service was considerably better.
