I love this building; the exposed brick, unfinished open warehouse ceiling and the twinkly string lights added such a romantic feel. I like how the brewing equipment isn’t separated, it makes you feel like you’re right in the thick of things.
The staff was fairly friendly when we ordered,
Marc tried the Westminster Brown ale (30 IBU – 6%) which had a malty flavour and a hoppy finish. I had the Stag & Pheasant Imperial Stout (65 IBU 9%), which was strong, but had coffee and chocolate tones.
The brewery is in one of Vancouver’s industrial heritage buildings, the “Vancouver Breweries Garage” (1913), in the historic Brewery Creek district.
To Try Next Time:
Latin Style Pulled Pork Sandwich ($9) with potato chips and chimichurri sauce and the Redback Ale (7%) to drink. Unless the Brew Dogs Chocolate Pine Apres Ski Base Beer (37 IBU – 6%) is pouring, then I want that! Hot chocolate beer? Yes please! Or Up Your Sporran Scotch Ale (22 IBU – 7.3%) buuuuut mostly because of the name.
