    They have an amazing selection of beers, the veggie burger was awesome, and their meatball special was really good too!

    Insanely good draft beer list. Get a beer sampler to try any 4. Tasty upscale bar food too.

    The beer variety is pretty nice. We came for brunch on a Sunday and it was very calm. Staff is friendly and helpful. Ask for the sampler, you can get 4 beers of your choice in small sizes.

    An amazing craft beer selection! Note, this place is EXTREMELY popular. Wise to hit during off-peak hours (like not right after work) but they will take your cell number and call when a table is free

    With so many indie beers available, it's the place to go if you'd like something other than Molsons. Actually, if you say that word, I suspect they will quietly and firmly escort you to the door. Read more

    25 taps and 3 casks on a rotating list. Amazing beer selection, cool ambiance, and lots of room for larger groups. A gem in the city, for sure.

    Favorite bar in Vancouver. Love that they do 6 oz samplers. Food great, the staff is great, and the beer is great. What else do you need.

    Lots of great beer and quite a few vegetarian food options. Busy, but we didn't have to wait too long for a table even as a group.

    Order a craft beer flight. If you can’t decide on just four beers, ask the bartender for help.

    Don't think twice. If you're a fan of good atmosphere, amazing beer, and food go to the Alibi Room. Ask your waiter to suggest some beers and get four-drink sampler.

    The tap selection here is beyond great (though, as with all of Vancouver, you'd think that no other country in the world made beer).

    What a great bar. Try to commandeer the leather arm chairs and do a good tasting of beers light to dark & wonderfully hoppy.

    If the Moon vs. Spinnarker "White" Stout is on tap, TRY IT! It's like a beer version of chocolate milk. Mmm... Beer....

    The Alibi Room was the first place in Vancouver to serve Central City Brewing's Red Racer IPA, now a benchmark of the West Coast IPA style. More at the link. Read more

    The beets, quinoa, and goat cheese salad and sweet chili chicken wings were super tasty - and portions were bigger than expected.

    If you don't know what you want, you can always ask for a sample to try the beer first. Cheers!
