It’s really just a small counter on 6 sqm, and behind it the fermentation tanks. I like the humble minimalism of this place; I also like that 5 of their sakés are available by the glass (1 is available only in full bottle); like that they provide a beginner’s explanation about their products, and that was good to me as a novice to appreciate saké more.

Visited Friday June 19, 2015. First time visit.
Arrived shortly after 4 pm, walked over from Granville Island. Small shop that has tastings available from bottles. Nice service. Not a place to hang out, mainly go here to sample or buy sake. They had 4 available at this time.

A small working brewery/winery with a patio and a small bar. Service was great, very passionate and willing to take the time to explain everything. Selection was good when I went, 6 for tasting. They serve traditional Japanese bar snacks. It is a bit pricey but the the tasting flight is worth it. I would recommend if you are in the area.

Tiny place on the island where you can try some sakes. Small patio with some little rice plants around the border, which is a nice touch. It’s also just down the street from Liberty Distillery, so you can stop there as well.

Two nice women running the tasting room. They have a portfolio of maybe 8-10 sakes, but only 4 were offered during our visit. We opted to try all four, which was quite cheap.

I’m by no means a sake aficionado, but they seemed to all be at least decent. They have some descriptions of the styles on the menu, which is helpful.

Not a place that you’ll really spend a whole lot of time, but a nice quick stop to try a few sakes and you can take them to go as well.

Cool little place to stop on a quieter street at Granville Island. As someone who doesn’t know squat about saké, it was nice to be able to try 3 for $5 (I tried all 4 for $7). They pour them one at a time in 0.5 oz pours (I would’ve liked at least 1 oz.) and there are nice descriptions for how each of them differ. Glad I finally stopped here. Definitely worth a stop when visiting Granville Island.

These guys are still kicking on. For five bucks you can get tasters of a few sake, and there was something like a dozen total available. The young guy working had good knowledge. Pleasant, simple environment to try some locally brewed sake in Vancouver.

A small little counter fronting the brewery with an even smaller outside patio where you can sample your sake in the sun. There are currently six sakes available for purchase, with five pouring at any one time. The sparkling sake doesn’t get poured, but it’s very reasonably priced so you should pick it up if you make it down here. The young man behind the counter was quite knowledgeable and was able to juggle a lot of people at different steps in the tasting. Five bucks for three tastes is a damn fine deal as well. They have a few other products for sale including a marinade/dressing made with the pressed lees from the fermentation and several other asian-inspired products there as well. I was somewhat surprised at how small their output is (only 30,000 litres to date) but they seem to have big ambitions.

Osake makes small batch sake on Granville Island. When I visited they had five different varieties to taste, including two which had been aged. The man at the bar was very friendly and answered many questions.
