Yaletown Brewing Company

Brewery in Yaletown & Granville Island

There's a brick-lined, tavernesque brewpub, complete with beer keg light fittings, on one side plus a giant dining room with Yaletown's largest patio on the other. Both serve this long-established brewery's own-made beers, but the restaurant adds a huge comfort food menu. Ask about the latest unusual small-batch brews or hit one of the classics: IPAs recommended.

If you really want to try something out of the ordinary, ask about the eye-popping Oud Bruin sour beer. It's guaranteed to put hairs on your chest, but only if you finish it. Happy hour is 3pm to 5pm Sunday to Thursday, which means $5 beer, wine and highball specials. And there's a long-standing Sunday dining deal where all pizzas are priced at $12.
