Our love of flavourful beer runs deep, and it inspired us to open as Canada’s first microbrewery back in 1984.
In a time of limited beer options, it became our mission to craft delicious, locally brewed beer that we were proud to share with our friends. Today, that mission remains the same, with every new style offered at our original small batch brewery on Granville Island.
From our very first Island Lager, to the wide variety of flavours we craft today, our beer is as flavourful and refreshing as the moments we spend together. Some are bold and full of life, others are a little more laid back – but every one is brewed with high quality, natural ingredients – and best enjoyed with friends.
Good beer + good people = It’s good to be here.
Stop by our retail store for a tour of where it all began, or sit back and watch a brew in process while enjoying a beer and tasty food pairings in the taproom. We’re always up for chatting about our latest Small Batch releases, seasonal food menu, or the weather – even if we’re experts in only two of those categories.
