1441 Cartwright St., Granville Island, Vancouver BC, Canada
Canada's first microbrewery opened in 1984 bringing west coast style and flavours to the craft brewing scene. Vistiors to the GIB Taproom can sometimes catch a glimpse of brewmaster Vern Lambourne behind the floor-to-ceiling glass window monitoring the production process.
In 2014 to celebrate its 30th anniversary, the brewery launched three new categories of beer: the Coastal Series, Under the Bridge, and Small Batch. Under the Bridge included the hearty Swing Span Amber Ale and Hey Day Hefeweizen, with labelling harkening back to Granville Island's industrial era. Lambourne created strong-tasting beers in the Small Batch series, such as Shamrocker Potato Stout. The Coastal Series includes Cypress Honey Lager and the classic English Bay Pale Ale.
