Wellllll, the girlfriend and I went to breakfast at a place a few blocks away from here (Red Wagon, for those was pretty damn solid). The information online said they opened at 11am, so I had things planned pretty much perfectly as we finished up our meal around 11:30 and headed over to the brewery. Turns out they donít open until noon. Derp. Instead we took a trip down the street to the 7-11 and checked out some of the fine Canadian junk food available (and of course bought some).

Having killed enough time, we made our way back over to the brewery and settled in. Typical tasting room with a few bar seats and some high top tables. Not too crowded at noon sharp on a Thursday. They had ten actual beers on tap and one randall/infusion sort of beer, which was actually quite good. For the most part, beer quality was okay here. Nothing really blew my socks off, but most of the beers were decent. And the flights and samples and full pours are cheap. Bottles are pretty reasonable, too. My favorite two beers were sort of radlers/shandies, so I guess I lose a few cool points for that.

My girlfriend seemed to lose all fine motor skills and coordination throughout this vacation as she was constantly tripping over her own feet and spilling things. This stop was no exception...I bumped a glass a little bit which resulted in a minor spill and got a rag from the bartender. The better half took the rag from me and proceeded to knock over two other glasses, including sending one to the floor. At least I made this one trip here a memorable one. And the woman working the bar was kind enough to replace the beer that met its untimely end. Canít beat that kind of service.

Busy place, in an area that is becoming the epicentre of brewing in BC. Basic taproom, and the service tries to get it done even when the place is busy. The beers are ok - some are decent while others fall flat. So thereís that. Worth a visit, definitely, and hopefully the beers will improve as the brewers gain experience working as pros.

Popped in on Christmas eve at noon and the place was full.....impressive. OK atmosphere but cool growler filling service and friendly staff and some good merc, I might pick one of those t-shirts before I go. Sleeves and paddles available so you can try as many as you want..... go for the paddle (4x3oz) if youíre not acquainted with 49th......good value. Lord of the Hops was the high light and I quite liked the Ugly Sweater......not crazy about the nitro version of US. Definitely worth a return.

Great to see new breweries in Vancouver :) this taproom is a great addition to the community. Growler fills are popular here, but its also a decent spot for an afternoon pint...the beers could use some work as several are sweet, and the IPA was yeasty but the milk stout non-nitro version is a go-to.

A decent size tasting room with taps and fridges of bottles. The beers in my sample tray were pretty rough going, but I guess it happens due to the experimental nature of the brewery. Still worth checking out to see whatís on tap.

Great place to stop for a beer with 6-9ish taps. Great growler filling system good service and great prices. Able to sample everything for free and a good selection of merchandise. Despite what others have said the bottle selection in the cooler was full and had about 4 bottles that werenít on tap. Sure that will depend on time of year and day. Overall nice place to stop after work and grab a pint.

Nice little tasting room across the street from Coal Harbour brewery. 8 beers on tap, featuring mostly their regular beers plus a few seasonal and one-offs. Service was solid and the prices are very reasonable. Worth a quick stop if in the area.

If you have never tried their beer this is the place to go. 6ish taps and you can try it all including some experimental stuff. Bottle selection is surprisingly sparse. 4 growler taps, you may want to call ahead to see what is available. Growler fill station is as high tech as I have ever seen.
