Vancouver is blessed by the number and quality of its artisan beer temples. Many, The Whip, The Alibi Room make a virtue of the local when your thirst feels like roaming, though, you want Biercraft. These twin towers of Belgian beership are long on exotic brews, shorter on food. (The dinner menu has around a half-dozen solid mains the tapas menu is stronger, with a focus on mussels and shareables like wings.) No matter how feverish you can get on yeast strains, seek counsel from the staff. Not only will you learn about obscure breweries and glass etiquette, you’ll glean the night’s cask special and guest beers on tap.
