Nice trendy open space, with only women working there. Great location especially if you don’t drive. Service was good, but nothing exceptional, the staff new enough about beer to make reasonable suggestions. Selection is good and is posted online, which is great. Food was above par but nothing I would come specifically for. Prices are reasonable and overall a place I would feel comfortable recommending.

Come here for the beer. I didn’t get a good vibe with anything else in this bar. Okay I dug the live tap feed but other than that whatever. Nice beers worth trying on tap.

mcberko  (896) Vancouver, British Columbia | December 16, 2010| Updated July 20, 2016
Update: After years of coming here, here are my thoughts based on many experiences:

Taplist: probably the best in the city these days, although close with Alibi -- St. Aug’s seems to get more interesting beers in more frequently.
Prices: $9.75+tax for a paddle of 4, which comes out to $11.22, plus tip. Better than Alibi for that. Their glasses, however, only come in one size (14 oz.): the local beers are typically $6.50 and the imports are typically $7.95, quite pricy overall.
Glassware: as with most local bars, they don’t give a shit about using proper glassware. All beers served in a generic sleeve glass. Tasting flights are served in 5 oz. straight glasses like everywhere else -- neither of which lend well to the aroma of the beer. The flights are often the sloppiest of pours possible, with liquid always sloshing around in the glass indents, almost never being wiped down. It would be nice to see a local establishment care about this aspect of the beer experience.
Atmosphere: it’s a sports bar and doesn’t feel like a craft beer establishment, more like that part of it was an afterthought in the design of the place.
Service: ranges from lacklustre / nonchalant to mildly friendly, with zero beer knowledge. They often take their time to even acknowledge you, let alone bring you your beer. Absolutely no samples / tastes and no single taster glasses available, which is a weak policy and unlike almost every other place
Food: as a vegan, I rarely order here as their selection is limited, though I’ve had the veggie burger a couple of times (veganizable) and it’s decent. It’s typical sports bar fare in general.
Overall: in Vancouver’s fairly weak (but improving) craft beer scene, this place ranks at the top of beer selection, but quite low on almost everything else. So I find myself grudgingly returning over and over simply for the selection, and have just learned to accept their many other weaknesses.

Terrible atmosphere is made up for by the beer selection and especially the live-updated screen telling you how much is left in each keg. A corporate-owned vibe does not negate the fact that this is a decent place to drink on the Drive. Have never needed to eat here. Nothing is cheap of course. Decent selection of local and regional brews on draft and bottle. More like a sports bar with a good beer selection than a beer bar that shows sports but does have good TVs, they sometimes turn the volume on for games.

Well this place has picked it up a lot since I last reviewed it. St. Augustine’s 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 can’t shake the Bino’s 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 don’t like much about it except the beer, but they are doing an excellent job with the beer.

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.

Rastacouere  (664) Montreal, Quebec | October 10, 2012
A fine pub, certainly one of Vancouver’s best for he who looks for fine ales near busy Broadway/Commercial intersection, on the part of Commercial that is not yet very hippie. I can’t say I find the place itself all that charming. The terrace is very small and receives all the noise from the nearby skytrain. Inside, black and gray are the dominating tints, making for a relatively somber and cold atmosphere with plenty of space that seems not optimally used for a city where the rent is probably the highest in Canada. Lots of TVs showing different sporting events, giving a sports bar connotation. But then again, the service was very enthusiast, compensating a fair bit and the beer list was probably the best in the city on that day with its varied list of 40 tap lines including both classic and rarer BC offerings as well as a few goodies from Belgium, the rest of Canada and of course, the neighbouring United States. I dig their concept of a live beer menu where you get to know what % of a keg is left or what just ran out. Were I a local, I’d certainly keep track of what’s on and the status of one of the best bars in my city. That’s another plus on the service.

Visited late afternoon on Monday June 22, 2015. Arrived about 19:20 and stayed for a flight of 4 beers, visited with fiulijn. Big draught selection. Well working wifi. Filled with a bunch of TV:s. Could see myself go back if I was local or found myself in Vancouver again. Parking available (a few spots) on the roof.

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.
