The best breweries with patios in Vancouver

What do you get when you combine good taste, passionate people and a fertile agriculture? Great local breweries is what. Vancouver loves craft beer. Our local beer scene is second in the world (only after Portland and it’s only because they’re weird and we can’t compete with that). There are over 175 breweries in BC and around 40 in the Vancouver area, so you could say that we really (really) like craft beer. We’re excited to break it down and share our city’s best breweries for your tasting and chilling pleasure.

16 Yaletown Brewing

Conveniently located downtown in Yaletown (hence the name), it’s walking (or stumbling distance) if you’re a downtowner. Get a front row view to all the Yaletown action in one of Vancouver’s historical neighbourhood breweries. The patio is covered and heated.

Where | 1111 Mainland Street

15 Main Street Brewing

We’re a sucker for cool branding, so naturally we’re all over Main Street Brewing’s cans. They’re flavours are also unique and experimental, if you’re looking for something different than the typical. They also have a patio, which is why they’re on this list. It isn’t covered though, so it’s weather dependent.

Where | 261 E. 7th Avenue

14 Andina Brewing Company

Not only is the patio next to the bright sunshine colour of Andina’s exterior walls to always present a good mood, but the beer feels extra bright as well, with the Colombian flare. Andina is a nod to the owner’s home – Colombia and pushes the boundaries when it comes to serving up unique flavours of quality craft beer.

Where | 1507 Powell Street

13 33 Acres

Mount Pleasant’s minimalist neighbourhood hot spot is hot anytime of the day and any day, whether you’re looking for weekend brunch or some afternoon snacks. The sun-filled patio is worth the visit and the beer will make you stay.

Where | 15 W. 8th Avenue

12 Faculty Brewing

A newbie to Vancouver, Faculty Brewing has been turning heads with their simplistic and laidback approach to the craft and decor. If beer’s not your thing (you probably wouldn’t be reading this, but anyhow), they also serve up Oddity Kombucha so you can fake it with your friends.

Where | 1830 Ontario Street

11 East Van Brewing

Peep the views of downtown from afar on East Van Brewing’s 48-seat patio. Also one of the newer breweries to the city, they embrace all that is East Van. High quality, carefully crafted and unique flavours, as well as the classics. For those looking for something more – beer cocktails for the change up are always exciting.

Where | 1675 Venables Street

10 Powell Brewery

Award winning brewery and couple-owned (sweet), Powell never disappoints. With a rustic vibe and a all seasons patio, their beer continuously pleases. We also, of course, love supporting mom and pop shops like this independent microbrewery.

Where | 1357 Powell Street

9 Strange Fellows Brewery

What’s so strange about Strange Fellows Brewery? How good of a spot it is. Mixing art and the art of  beer making, makes it a unique addition to the city. Experimental flavours and techniques and names based on folklore definitely makes it uniquely strange. The patio is covered and ready for any weather.

Where | 1345 Clark Drive

8 Strathcona Brewing

A bright light in a dim(ish) area, Strathcona Brewing is colorful af and bringing joy to the neighbourhood. Their fun beer match the bubbling personality, like ‘Milkshake’, ‘Beach’ and ‘Love Buzz’ – you can only imagine the flavours.

Where | 895 E. Hastings Street

7 Parallel 49 Brewing

Parallel 49 has always been a fan fav with their goofy cartoon branding, large community tables full of laughter and tours through the vat room, so of course their patio would also be hoppy.

Where | 1950 Triumph Street

6 Electric Bicycle Brewing

Eclectic doesn’t even sum up this funky brewery. Surrounded by poppy artwork, funk music,  psychedelic branding and interesting beer flavours, this patio is definitely a vibe.

Where | 20 E. 4th Avenue

5 Stanley Park Brewing

It doesn’t get any more west coast than a large patio in the middle of Stanley Park. Become one with nature while you sip on some brews that taste like a good, outdoorsy time.

Where | 8901 Stanley Park Drive

4 House of Funk

North Van’s never been so lucky than when this micro-brewery set up shop. House of Funk is all that a bag of chips. Again..suckers for fun and poppy branding, House of Funk pushes boundaries by creating small-batch brews with unique flavours, in especially fun colours and cans.

Where | 350 Esplanade E.


While the BREWHALL’s magic is in feeling like a massive German brewhall, but there’s a reason they’ve been a multi-award winner for the annual Populist Awards and it’s because there’s also magic in the patio, beer, staff, community, really all of it. They also serve a mean brunch on the weekends and the patio is conveniently covered for when Raincouver is in town.

Where | 97 E. 2nd Avenue

2 Superflux Beer Company

Who is ballsy enough to open a brewery during a pandemic? Superflux, that’s who. The niche IPA brand opened a retail shop with tasting room and patio only last summer and have been doing really well ever since.

Where | 505 Clark Drive

1 Red Truck

Find the spot with white picket patio and bright red truck. Aside from brewing great, traditional  beer and having one of the largest patios, they also throw amazing events that we can’t wait to get back to like the Summer Concert Series.

Where | 295 E. 1st Avenue
