33 Acres Brewing Company
33 Acres Brewing Company is a small, stylish, and hip brewery in the heart of Vancouver’s Brewery Creek district within Mount Pleasant, one of Vancouver’s up-and-coming neighbourhoods.
The brewery typically offers between 5 and 8 beers available for samples and fills. 33 Acres’ space is crisp, clean, and bright with a modern, minimalist aesthetic. On sunny days the tasting room is fairly bright with street facing windows letting in plenty of natural light. Occasionally at the weekends the tasting room will play host to live music to accompany the beer.
Snacks are available from local businesses and include nuts, fresh bread, charcuterie, doughnuts, as well as coffee. The brewery also offers lunch during the week, or brunch including waffles at the weekend. Be prepared for a queue out the door especially if you’re waiting for their weekend brunch as it tends to be incredibly popular.
Children are welcome in the tasting area except during peak hours.
