Browse Our Recommended Pubs
Here at BeerGuideYVR.com we don't have complicated rules for choosing the pubs we list. To recommend a pub we have to actually have had a beer there - we don't list pubs which have been recommended by friends of friends, brothers-in-law or some random guy on the the street unless we have checked it out ourselves. Our pubs must serve good beer. We don't care how it is served -- cask, keg, bottled are all fine so long as the pub serves Good Beer from interesting breweries. But the pub also needs to have a little something extra, be it an outstanding selection, stunning architecture, an amazing ambience or excellent food. But first and most of all it must have good beer.
The one exception are the pubs on the "To Do List" -- they have been recommended by people we trust, but we haven't actually visited them yet.
All the pubs on this guide are worthy of a visit. A few have been singled out for special attention -- those ones are worth a special effort to visit. ;
