Best bars in Vancouver

Brewery

“Granville Island is both a locals’ favorite and a huge draw for visitors. The Granville Island Public Market acts as a hub of activity, but it’s also one of the city’s most important cultural districts with theatres, artisan workshops and craft studios. he biggest attraction on Granville Island is the Public Market. Housed indoors, there are endless rows of stalls that feature fresh produce, gourmet foods, baked goods, and seafood. Outside of the market, catch a show at one of the many theatres on the island, browse an art gallery show, or appeal to your outdoorsy side with a kayaking or paddleboarding tour.”

“There are so many craft breweries in Vancouver and many of them are along the Main Street corridor. This is a good one; try their "Nirvana" (an IPA) or "33 Acres of Sunshine" (a French blanc).”
