Huge lists of taps and their screens let you see how much is available on taps. Great atmosphere and conveniently located.

Largish spot a short walking distance from the Skytrain stop. Large dark space with loads of dark wood and brass everywhere. Inexplicably decorated with some very shiny remnants of someone’s brewery that I’d honestly rather see making beer than adding ambiance, but I digress. Nice selection of beers in here - available in taster pours (which I always appreciate). They also tweet their selection regularly which lets you keep track of what’s on. Never ate here, but enjoyed the time I did spend here. The bar staff know the selection and seem to enjoy chatting about beer. A great stop.

Great place for casks on Monday night. Good tap selection. Would be even better with a good bottle selection

Great place located near the Commercial Dr. Skytrain stop. Large tap list of local, American and European craft beers. Samplers available, which is always a big plus. Taps rotate quite often and there is always something interesting on. Casks available once a week, too. Reasonably priced and the food is good as well.

Not much atmosphere, but what there is, is more like a sports bar. I have nothing against sports as such, but there are more than enough sports bars in this town! A great tap selection and good bottled selection. The little food I’ve had there has been pretty standard fare. Service has been somewhat indifferent the few times I’ve been there.

OK selection of craft beer on tap (40) with a good focus on local and west coast micro-brews, would be nice if they had a unique selection of bottles that changed with the season. (were not talking about Molson products either!) I don’t mind this place, they have a Beer Paddle which holds I think 4x4oz draft samples (your choice) which is a great way to try and discover something new. The food is standard Pub Grub & the service can be slow at times, the last time I was there, I waited well over 5 minutes before a server casually came over to take my order. (I want to try these great new beers, Not wait forever lol) I have friends that now refuse to go there because of rude service from the bar staff. that said in the right situation I would go there for a quick beer.

Considering number of taps, variety of beers held is disappointing. Staff are friendly, food is decent and it has a good social atmosphere

I know that this place will always be second choice after the Alibi Room, because it doesn’t have the same atmosphere, and because they seem to be less beer geeks and because they came after, but indeed they upped the tap list to ~40, they too focus on local beers, they have frequent tap rotation, they are quite up to date with the beer list (and if not enough, the level of every keg is displayed on a monitor over the bar), and usually carry a couple of interesting bottles too. The Monday night cask is a plus. The price for the sampler is too high.
Now folks, even if you make me pay too much, a couple of ideas to get even better: connect your beer monitor online to allow people to know exactly what’s on (your Twitter is useless) and stock 10 different beers in the cellar, choosing among the ones that are available only if you are lucky to go to the shop at the right moment, like Barley Wines, Imperial beers etc.

Somewhat underrated place, visited with Brad. Lots of taps, and a good cask was tapped while visiting on a Monday. Good cross-section of B.C. and a few U.S. taps such as Deschites and Bear Republic. Reflecting some good choices. Very unique flashing video of what percentage of each beer was still available. Away from the downtown core, and not far from the best private stores. Service was instant and then not at all. The only way around this is to know what you want the second you sit down, or Ask & Wait. Quiet midway, very busy late aft when Vancouverites get off from work.
