The definitive example of the Vancouver brewery experience.
It was always the aim of 33 Acres owner Josh Michnik to create a community brewery in the heart of the city’s Mount Pleasant area, and the extended opening hours here reflect that. You can pop in for an espresso first thing, sit in for some lunch later on, then enjoy a post-shift pint and some snacks or pizza. The weekend brunch waffles, meanwhile, have become something of a minor sensation. The lounge is certainly a place worth lingering. Simply but impeccably designed, its clean, whitewashed interior remains welcoming and comfortable, with strategically placed greenery and tall windows offering lots of natural light.
Head brewer Trevor Bass’s lineup follows and riffs on classic European and West Coast styles and is, without exception, excellent. A long list of accolades includes a silver medal at both the 2016 and 2018 World Beer Cups for the 33 Acres of Euphoria Belgian Tripel. (Also award worthy: the brewery’s gorgeous Instagram feed.)
The brewery’s name is meant to signify “success through hard work,” with 33 being a numerologically powerful number and “acres” referring to the honest human labour associated with farming. Each beer is named “33 Acres of…” something: Sunshine, Ocean, Life, and so on.
