Mount Pleasant Bars & Nightlife
33 Acres Brewing
15 W. 8th Ave., Mount Pleasant
33 Acres has elevated the traditionally drab taproom, infusing the space with a Scandinavian aesthetic: floor-to-ceiling windows flood the room with light, all the surfaces—walls, floors, even the counters—are stark-white, softened-up with a few hints of natural wood and greenery. Aside from the dozens of beers on tap, a full menu is available (including brunch), spotlighting the hearty foods that go so well with beer—beef stew, salty perogies, and sticky ribs.
Main Street Brewery
261 E. 7th Ave., Mount Pleasant
Vancouver’s micro-brewery scene is booming and the ever-popular Main Street Brewery occupies one of the last-standing heritage industrial buildings in the city. The tasting room is cooly minimal—long wood communal tables, exposed brick, with a few fairy lights and plants to warm the bare-bones space up. Stop in on a Sunday afternoon, try a few beer flights, and wander down the street to equally good 33 Acres for another round.
