Good fun and absolutely a value if you take the tour (which is followed by samples). I enjoyed GI almost as much as any ’regular’ pub I went to in Vancouver. They only serve their own brews, but they have a good selection of styles, including a seasonal or two. Service is friendly and quick, though ambiance was lacking in the middle of the day when I was there - a bit sterile. Recommended as a tour stop when visiting!
First brewery I stopped at in Vancouver. Took a few minutes to get a place to sit. They are broken up into three segments...brewery, taproom, and store. They had a pretty diverse selection, but the beers seemed to be okay at best. The flatbread pizza was fantastic. Was also able to grab a bottle of limited released beer to bring back to share in Anchorage. After being in Alaska for so long the price was very friendly. Worth a stop if your in this part of town.
Beautiful restaurant/brewery in a great space in the middle of the trendy and fun Granville Island. Had a business dinner there with a large group...service was good...food ranged from average to very good (no real standouts though). The building and space itself is quite nice...large with numerous different eating and drinking areas. As for the beer...nothing special...average at best. definitely "not" a craftbeer destination...but a fun place to hit with a bunch of friends for drinks and TGIF types of menu items.
Only stopped by here because it was hot and we were in Granville Island. Well, it’s GI - you know the drill. Molson owned = mediocre beers without much creativity. Tourists seems to like it, though. And the service was good and atmosphere pleasant. Beers are what you’d expect (with few, if any, brewery special beers). Food was mediocre - poutine was mushy.

Visited Friday June 19, 2015. Arrived about 14:20 and stayed until 16:00. Had a flight of four beers, 3 made at the bigger plant and one there made small batch. Visible brewery, tours available. Fast friendly service, though some of the servers seems to not really know or perhaps care what they’re doing. Didn’t eat. Walked over from the city. Parking might be hard.
A large open and spacious brewpub in stunning Granville Island. Service was good with a decent amount of beer knowledge. I didn’t eat but they have a good menu. Beer its mediocre with a Brewers tap which isn’t much better. Pretty but lacks substance. Tasters are available.
Small brewery and tasting room not far from the market. On a weekend afternoon, it’s fairly crowded, but they seem to turnover seats pretty quickly. There’s also a retail store attached next door where you can buy bottles and other merchandise to take with you. Pretty clean, modern interior and decor.
They had eight beers on tap and do flights of four (that’s all you can get per person on the flight front, not sure about full pours). The beers are just sort of okay...nothing really special. Not horrendously priced, at least.
Might as well try to stop in as it’s a convenient location when wandering around the island.
Their year-round lineup is pretty dull, but their seasonals have been getting better and better. Brewery tasting room itself is very comfy, with lots of tourists in the summer time. Worth a stop when in the area.
