We did not take the tour, but we sat at the bar and tried the sampler (my husband and I each did one, which gave us 6 different types of beer to try). We enjoyed 5 out of the 6 we tried. It was a very enjoyable way to end our day at Granville Island. Not a big food menu, but very good beer.

Nice room to just have a good visit and some beer. The food selection is limited, but best just to go for a taste of beer or a favorite pint.

If you love beer, this is a place to make a stop at while on the island.

This brewery and sampling room is situated on the delightful Granville Island, which is not an island at all but a peninsula. We visited after a stroll around the harbour path and a visit to a nearby museum. Just enough to work up a thirst.
The beers are offered in sampling sizes so that you can find out what you like before moving on the larger sizes for the ones you like. The barman was very helpful and suggested brews to sample based on the information we gave him about likes and dislikes. The range is quite wide and offers a fruit beer as well as pale ale etc.
