Yaletown’s original brewpub remains a raucous refuge from its hoity-toity neighbours. The redesigned brick-and-beam interior sees modern accents like Tiko Kerr paintings, ponyskin barstools, and reconstituted butcher block tables while maintaining the heritage feel. Gone are the incongruous Asian influences (well, mostly) instead, find an emphasis on hearty homecookin’ that appeals to our basest desires. Impossibly tender braised short ribs, duck confit pizza with crumbled Roquefort, and Mumbai curry chicken wings are a fine match for a local pint or three.
