I have generally enjoyed the Portside. First, itís a basement pub designed along the Nova Scotia model, and it does conjure up the whole drinking in Halifax thing with me, but with better craft beer, since there wasnít much of that when I lived in Hali. The fact that they have garlic fingers is a major plus. Beer selection is around 20 and is pretty good. Shared ownership means lots of Persephone, but again thatís not a bad thing. I like the place.

Great bar just down the road from the Alibi Room with 20+ craft beer taps. Good beer selection with decent prices for the area. Interior is pretty relaxed with extensive seating. Service is stellar. Definitely worth a pop in on a Gastown beer crawl.

Good music, daily beer special, decent taps with local beers focused, cozy cellar/basement. Update: they have a few nibbles now, too.
