Breweries in Vancouver and surrounding areas

Hello everyone!

My name is Serge and I'm new to this forum; I've been living in Vancouver for a little more than four years, and I love the craft/artisan beers and liqueurs scene here.

I would like to ask everyone: any recommendations for good breweries, gastropubs, tasting rooms, distilleries here in Vancouver and its surroundings?

Let me know which ones are your favorites, and cheers!

If you want to check out as many as possible without driving East Van or main street is your best bet

Within a 8-10 block radius you've probably got 10+ breweries in east van, and on main between 3rd and 14th you've got 5-6

Personally my hands down favorites locally are Central City and Driftwood

Phillips is aight, and Parallel 49 has their ups and downs. So many to choose from it's ridiculous

I agree with hondaracer. Central city is also known as red racer. Red racer ipa and driftwood fat tug are my favourite. Theirs also biercraft that holds a big selection of beer. One is on comericial drive and the other on cambie 17 area.

FYI driftwood is on the island, so a little further away.

Biercraft, St.Augastines on Comercial drive, and CRAFT all have 50+ taps with dozens of local beers so it's a little easier to go to a single place and drink a bunch there rather than hop around to (usually packed) tasting rooms

I've been to CRAFT, and Tap and Barrel, both are very good, and I have St. Augustines and Biercraft on my list; the only breweries (or brewpubs, rather) that I've been to are GIB, Steamworks, and Steel Toad, which are also good; I'm curious about visiting all those breweries in East Van, though, maybe even tour their facilities; I'm a fan of the whole process and I started homebrewing a little while ago, so I would definitely like to take a look at their operations.

Thanks everyone for your suggestions as well.
Cheers!

In Port Moody there's Moody Ales, Yellow Dog and Twin Sails all within a block of each other with a 4th brewery opening next month. Theres usually a food truck parked outside Yellow Dog for food, and down the street is also St James' Well for gastropub-fare in Newport Village.

Some of the best craft breweries in Metro Vancouver are unfortunately a bit of a drive depending where you live.

-Yellow Dog in Port Moody
-Fuggles and Warlock in Richmond (opened a few weeks ago, but their entire lineup is stellar)
-Four Winds Brewing in South Delta (I believe they won BC Craft Brewery of the year. If you go at lunchtime during the week, they serve amazing tacos with their beer)
- Steel and Oak in New West
- Central City in Surrey

East Vancouver, as people have mentioned has a bunch of great breweries. My favs are Powell Street, Strange Fellows, 33 Acres, and Brassneck Brewery.

Main Street Brewery opened up recently as well, but I wasn't a fan the one time I went. I didn't like Steel Toad, great space but all three beers I tried were sub-par.

haha, the picture of the unicorn on the bottle is actually what attracted me to the beer in the first place.

Yellow Dog, Moody Ales. Go there and enjoy Rocky Point Park. Makes for an epic day in the sun.

Haha I've seen a ''Destiny IPA'' from Fuggles and Warlock in a couple of liquor stores, next time I'll give it a try.
