Alibi Room information
Vancouver's best craft-beer tavern, Alibi has an exposed brick bar that stocks an ever-changing roster of around 50 drafts from celebrated BC breweries such as Phillips, Driftwood and Crannog. Adventurous taste-trippers – hipsters and veteran, red-nosed beer fans alike – enjoy the $9.50 'frat bat' of four sample tipples: choose your own or ask to be surprised. Be sure to check the board for ever-changing guest casks.
Food-wise, go for a side order of skinny fries with chili garlic vinegar or the hearty barbecued pork-belly sandwich. There's a slender patio for alfresco summer quaffing, and the cave-like downstairs area is ideal for rainy-day hunkering and lingering taste-testing. The Alibi's communal tables are especially packed during Vancouver Craft Beer Week (www.vancouvercraftbeerweek.com) in May/June. Also ask about Brassneck, Alibi's new brewery on Main St.
