For the originators of Granville Island Brewing, their love of flavorful beer ran so deep, it inspired them to open one of Canada’s first microbreweries in 1984. It became their mission to craft locally brewed beer that they enjoyed and were proud to serve their friends and family.

Time for a Visit
My first introduction to the brewery was a Granville Islands Lions Winter Ale, given to me last winter. This was impressive enough that I was interested in trying others. Their selection of brews is likely to be enjoyed by wine lovers as well. When visiting Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, a visit to the brewery on Granville Island is a must.

On the island, you will find a taproom as well as a retail store. The taproom serves beer and beer flights along with food. There is even a beer pairing chart on the menu!
