A large pub in trendy Yaletown which was surprisingly family-friendly. Rather large terrace in the heart of this nicely revamped industrial neighborhood. Plenty of brick and wood make for a relatively warm feel in this place that feels more like a restaurant than a pub. The food was excellent, I had a tasty and pretty filling seafood paella for a very reasonable $16. The pizzas looked really good on a nearby table. The beers are rather simple interpretation of classic styles, but they were all clean, just careful not to shock any newcomer to the world of craft beer.

Being just 2 blocks from my "office", this one became a regular stop the few times I was there, after office hours. In August 2011 I had the chance to be there for 2 Thursday Night Cask, and the IPA was lovely. Also a few of the other beers are good. Food is ok. The atmosphere is nice.

Pretty nice location. Beer is not too special. Great bar food. Nice staff yet slightly slow. Overall a nice visit for a few beer but nothing too special. The seasonal beer is really the only thing worth trying, yet pricey.

Pretty average quality beer with the same taps on year-round except for one seasonal which is usually worthwhile, especially the adventurous (for Yaletown) Rocket to Russia Bourbon Oak-Aged Imp. Stout which was on during my visit. $6.75 for a 16 oz. glass of the year-rounds and $7.75 for the seasonal - quite pricey! Would only really come back (for beer) if there was a worthwhile seasonal on tap. But all in all, a decent option if you want a real beer and are stuck nearby. Otherwise, there are many superior options in the near vicinity. Doesnít hold a candle to the sadly now gone Dix.

Iíve been here a dozen times in the last decade, and it hasnít changed much. Interior is kind of cool. I like the wooden beams and renovated warehouse look. Itís pretty casual : you can play pool or watch the game on TV. I find it a little on the dark side. Clientele can be pretty yuppie-ish. Service is decent and generally knowedgeable. There are 8 taps of beer brewed on premises and the quality of beer is decent. A glass is pretty pricey: $6.75. Ouch! Nevertheless, Iíll be back.

They make pretty good beer, but itís in Yaletown, so pretentious central. Rubs off on the staff. Not a must stop on any level. Too bad, moving along. Ohya thanks for the free meal...

Didnít really like the place. Staff wasnít too friendly and the atmosphere was ... well ... not my thing. Almost empty room with just a few standing tables and black. Almost cheap appearance IMO. The beers arenít great either.

Another brewpub owned by a corporation (same as DIX) with trained staff. Above average high ABV beers, a good touristy downtown location. Good sized bar and fairly busy for a Monday night.

Cold rainy November day in Vancouver and a brick and wood interior with a fire going! Not sure about the tiny tables in the bar, the red table cloths or the shape of the chairs. Looked a bit weird but the chairs were more comfortable than they looked and it was a good spot for beer on this day. A couple of intriguing choices on draft. Pizza was good with paper thin slices of green apple although the crust was a bit soft. Staff were friendly and knowledgeable enough about the beer to hold a conversation and offer recommendations.
