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 Iíve had there has been pretty standard fare. Service has been somewhat indifferent the few times Iíve 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 donít 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 doesnít 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 whatís 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.

Finally made it to St. Augustineís. This place looks like an upscale sports bar. Not much atmosphere. The service and selection were good. Lots of taps of decent local brews and some from the US West Coast. Prices were better than expected but high enough to scare away some of the locals Iím sure. I enjoyed the food, although there is not a wide selection on the menu.

Excellent beer list, but the food menu is a bit lacking. Ambience is minimal - but if youíre suds upped, maybe you donít need ambience?

Stopped by for an afternoon taster. Great selection of BC micros with a few easy-to-find American brews. Service was prompt and friendly, though refusing of any free samples before ordering. Prices are quite high, especially considering the beer selection does not usually consist of rarities. Second in the city only to the Alibi room.

A very good selection of rotating taps that reflect not only Lower Mainland BC microbreweries, but also many American breweries (Dog Fish Head, Rogue, Deschutes, Lost Coast are some recent ones that come to mind).
Attentive service without any attitude, but the servers often lack any knowledge of the beers being served. The restaurant has recently been updated nicely, but still doesnít seem to know which direction it wants to go... a sports bar where people want Molson Canadian or a beer bar where people donít want Molson Canadian.
The food is standard pub grub that has had consistency problems in the past, but appears to be improving in both quality and presentation. The nachos, steak bites, and chicken quesadillas are all very good.
All in all, my favorite local spot to go to since I live in the area. They have cask nights on Monday evenings.

Well this place has picked it up a lot since I last reviewed it. St. Augustineís is a solid place for beer in Vancouver, with a lot of beers that are hard to find anywhere else (except Alibi). The food is pricey for pub grub, and the atmosphere is still pretty corporate (they canít shake the Binoís out of the space), but it is a busy place and that keeps most of the beers turning over. They also have a live tap list showing you how much is left in each keg. That is just awesome, and that they post it on their website and even at the urinals is even better. I donít like much about it except the beer, but they are doing an excellent job with the beer.
