First off - I didn't do the tour. I just stopped by to try a few local beers and take a break from walking around the market.
This place is limited to serving 12oz to a person and no more. It seems really ridiculous but it is technically a tasting room rather than a full bar. A bit of a far cry from breweries I'm used to visiting in the states where you typically can expect 3 pours and a take-home pint glass for $10.
At Granville Island Brewing, for around $6 you can either get your selection of 3 small tasters to try out different beers (when I went, there were 8 choices - their regular rotation plus a small batch), or one 12 oz pour if you know what you want. I recommend trying out 3 different ones or even splitting six if you come with another person willing to share.
The beers themselves are pretty good - I liked the IPA and Amber best. I couldn't help but leave wanting more, though. There is a gift shop attached to buy more of whichever is your favorite, but I didn't want to lug it around all day so I passed.
