Pretty extravagant brewpub in the heart of Whistler Village. Expansive interior with pretty elaborate decorations. Beer quality is pretty poor-to-average, but you don’t come here for that. Flights of 6 are available for a whopping $17.95. Service is very friendly and astute. Worthwhile stop when in Whistler.
Nice "mountain lodge" brewpub. Very friendly staff, but service a little slow. Small but decent selection of beers on tap. I had the IPA, and a sample of the Oatmeal stout - both good. Food was good, but pricey. Price of beer pints was actually acceptable. Didn’t know this was in Whistler; it was a pleasant surprise. Would probably go here again if I were in Whistler again.
My wife and I visited here on a day trip, a side trip from a few days in Vancouver. It was the offseason between summer and winter so the place was fairly empty. The space is pretty awesome; lots of wood beams, fireplaces, stone, steel- basically a nice ski lodge feel, but a bit lower lit. There were 6 beers on tap, 5 regulars and 1 seasonal. Nothing too special but I was really pleased with the IPA. The bartender was really, really cool and friendly. Wanted to hear about our trip and gave us tips on places he’d been in cities we were going. The prices were very high for what we’re used to, but we’re from fairly cheap cities (St. Louis and Cincinnati) for food and drink. Vancouver brought some sticker shock for us, and Whistler was even more expensive, even in the offseason. This place is absolutely worth a visit if you make it up to Whistler. Nowhere else in the area makes beer and the atmosphere is great.
Expensive English ales of mediocre quality in this brewpub that has the advantage of having few competitors when you’re in Whistler. Much larger pub than I anticipated. The tarrace was the most popular section on the late afternoon we visited, but it can sit perhaps 50 whereas the two-stories interior can probably sit somewhere around 150. I initially found the waiter/resses a bit cold, but realized that they were very friendly with familiar faces. We did not eat though, so could not value the service very easily.
An average place overall, this is a trendy Whistler Village restaurant that as a differentiator makes its own beer. The beer was OK an nothing stood out, it is drinkable if you could not get out to better bottles, including at a store down the street open to 11 pm. Tons of patio space, or the loud music and young athletic types shouting out their latest exploits, mostly inside. Service is so-so, with Australian young people making up the bulk of this and every place in Whistler, not that there is anything wrong with that.
