Vancouver’s original brewpub.
Dating back to 1994, Yaletown Brewing was the first brewpub to open in Vancouver. This pioneer of the city’s craft beer scene also helped lead the revitalization of the Yaletown warehouse district. Today, this neighbourhood at the south end of the downtown peninsula is filled with fancy boutiques, fine restaurants and expensive stores, but back in the early 1990s it was a very different story. The original red-brick warehouse housing the brewpub was extensively and beautifully renovated. You can sit outside on the original loading docks, or choose either the restaurant or brewpub inside — the same great beer is available in each section.
Yaletown Brewing is the flagship brewery of the Mark James Group chain of brewpubs, which includes the BrewHouse in Whistler and Big Ridge Brewing in Surrey, as well as the Yaletown Distilling Co. next door. Mark James is also the owner of the Red Truck Beer Company.
