A fun, unpretentious, award-winning brewery in the heart of East Van.

Steve Forsyth doesn’t feel like making sour beer, so his brewery won’t make one. Same goes for Belgian styles and anything on trend. He’s perfectly happy with his lineup of British- and West Coast-influenced beer (with a couple of lagers thrown in), and it’s paying off: Off the Rail has scored big success at the Canadian Brewing Awards in its short life. Named in cheeky reference to Forsyth’s former business, the legendary Railway Club in downtown Vancouver, Off the Rail is an unassuming brewery happily following its own track in the city’s busy scene. The compact second-storey tasting room offers a great vantage point to watch cyclists zip past on the busy Adanac cycle route – though many of them also stop in here for a sip – while the engaging staff keep the atmosphere friendly and fun. Grab a glass or a flight and unwind.
