Good beer in Vancouver
Posted February 21st, 2013 - 8:26 pm by from Springfield, United States (Permalink)
I'm coming to Vancouver for the first time March 21-24 with my cousin and I love some advice on where to drink. Im flying in and staying downtown, so hopefully awesome beer is available on foot or via public transit. If anyone from the group is inclined to meet up for a beverage during that time, I'd be great to make a new friend.

Hi David,
Gastown area is great for drinking. My favourite is The Alibi Room http://www.yelp.ca/biz/alibi-room-vancouver
But there's also:

The Irish Heather - http://www.yelp.ca/biz/the-irish-heather-vancouver
Six Acres - http://www.yelp.ca/biz/six-acres-vancouver
The Bitter Tasting Room - http://www.yelp.ca/biz/bitter-tasting-room-vancouver
Guild & Co - http://www.yelp.ca/biz/guilt-and-co-vancouver
Steamworks Pub - http://www.yelp.ca/biz/steamworks-brewing-company-vancouver-2

just to name a few.....:)

If I'm free around those days I'll join you!

Definitely the Alibi Room. Best bar in Vancouver.

yes to alibi but also worth checking out Portside (two blocks from alibi). just opened up this month and has quickly become my new go to. Alibi is licensed as a restaurant so you need to be seated. which means if you don't get there early, you'll be looking at a hefty wait time to even get a pint. portside is licensed as a bar and has more of that pub atmosphere which i appreciate in this town.

there are some other great spots outside of downtown and are just a quick/cheap cab/skytrain away. Bier craft has a great list of belgian beers. St. Augustine's has great list of locals. However, i believe both, again, require you to be seated.
