Notes

Visited: September 16, 2006

Opened: 1997

Dockside Brewing is attached to the Granville Island Hotel. Parking on Granville Island is diabolically difficult. They lose a point for using frosted glasses. The menu is pricey, but the food is magnificent! Granville Island Brewing has a tasting room just two blocks away.
