Where to find good beer in Vancouver BC.

I will be going up to Vancouver BC this weekend for a soccer game (go Timbers!) and am looking for recommendations on breweries I should visit. I did a quick google search and there are a boat load up there so hoping to narrow down the field a little. I will have the ability to get around so as long as it is not to far away from the city center it should not be a problem.

    Steam works in Gas town was pretty good when I was there 4 or 5 years ago. There's also a brewery on Granville island, that good, but my favorite drinking thing I did when I was there is the sake maker on Granville island. I'm not a huge sake drinker, but the stuff there was just out of this world good.

    I am not a beer drinker, but I've heard good things about the beer at this place

    They enthusiastically cultivate their sketchy appearance.

    I'd just pop on to Untapped and check out the highest rated beers in the area. Let that guide you.

    Sweet. I was looking at a few on Granville. Thanks for the heads up on the same maker. I think that tipped the scales to head there.

    If you are going to Granville Island and want fish and chips, then I recommend stopping by the stand near the marina between the Granville and Burrard bridges, a bit west of Granville Island. The other ones are fine, but the Go Fish stand is the best.

    For burgers, I would suggest the stand in the marketplace near the soup and craft stands, in a different wing from most if the rest of the food court. They use high quality ingredients and the price is pretty reasonable for a gourmet burger.

    Thank you for all the suggestions. I ended up drinking all around Granville including the sake joint and a gin distillery. I also checked out gastown and pretty much every brewery down in that area including steamworks. Thanks again!
