Brewery Review: 33 Acres in Vancouver BC

This was a tiny neighborhood brewery tucked away in a sleepy area of the Mount Pleasant neighborhood of Vancouver. It's a small, modern-looking space with a clean look. Quite loud from crowds. Pizza (from a permanent-looking food truck parked in front) and snacks like pretzels, jerked dried sausages, scones, etc.

The wood-fires pizza really hit the spot after wandering around the city for a while.

They also have an espresso bar, which is a little weird, but actually kinda cool.

I don't know, the space felt kinda sterile and non-welcoming, despite the noisy crowd. The beers were good, though.

My comments on Facebook were somewhat more complimentary:

This one was a bit odd. Very spartan and modern inside, and noisy as heck, with a permanent-looking food truck outside making wood-fires pizza. Other than the pizza, there were only snack foods. The pizza was excellent, and the beer was very well implemented. Their beers taste very "fresh grain", very natural tasting. The California Common and West Coast Pale Ale were excellent, and very malt-forward, with definite hops to the PA, but not overmuch. I also had their hazy IPA, which didn't overuse the citra, like most do. The bourbon-barrel-aged Belgian tripel was quite excellent, although it was hard to taste the underlying tripel for the bourbon, but that's not a bad thing.

They have an espresso bar as well, which was surprisingly not unpleasant to smell while drinking beer...
