The GOODS from Pourhouse

Vancouver, BC | Beard appreciation has become a passion for a few of us at Pourhouse. Though few in numbers, our in?uence is strong. I can?t help but wonder if perhaps the beard has something to do with that? In any case, on the last Monday of every month we have decided to invite our bearded comrades to gather with us and just ?be?. Starting February 27, from 4pm – 7pm, Pourhouse will host An Afternoon Gathering of Bearded Gentlemen. Our Chef will prepare delicious beard friendly snacks (on the house) and our sophisticated bearded bartender will be at your command. Enjoy the company of other bewhiskered chaps. There will be discussions on the bene?ts of beards, beard maintenance, bearded ladies, as well as other beard and non-beard related gentlemanly topics of conversation. Come enjoy an afternoon of nosh and libations with other men that share your values…men that just want to be men.


WE BELIEVE in beards
WE BELIEVE you should have a beard. If you are a lady, you are excluded
WE BELIEVE that men were created to have beards
WE BELIEVE that if your man has no beard, he should not be your man
WE BELIEVE in beards

“There is always a period when a man with a beard shaves it off. This period does not last. He returns headlong to his beard.”
Jean Cocteau

“He that hath a beard is more than a youth, and he that hath no beard is less than a man.”
William Shakespeare

About Pourhouse


Embracing the sublime pleasure of drink, the joy of good food and the comfort of family – Pourhouse is the embodiment of a passion for sharing the simple indulgences of life with friends. Just southeast of the Steam Clock in Gastown, Pourhouse is born of century-old styles of drinking and dining. The 100-year-old building was built in 1910, as home to the Leckie Boot Company – the original structure crafted with Douglas Fir ceilings, supported by large wood pillars, and brick walls. Pourhouse is furnished in antiques of the era – complimented by custom creations. Every piece in Pourhouse has a story. The cornerstone is the 38 ft. bar – lovingly handcrafted from 120 year-old planks of reclaimed Douglas Fir. Entrance and hallway walls are finished with era-inspired textures and gold leaf detailing – no aesthetic left unconsidered.

The cocktails have an old-fashioned soul, in variations both plain and fancy – the catalyst for the entire concept. The wine list gets its inspiration from the turn of the century, and is priced to encourage sharing and discovering. Beers cover the range of tastes and styles – several selections representing the true ale craftsmanship of BC and the Pacific Northwest. Serious about coffee, Pourhouse serves a beautiful local roast, crafted with a handmade Synesso Espresso machine – overall, a focus on quality over quantity, with a particular interest in Whiskey and Whiskey applications to cocktails. The true heart of Bartending is shown through the creation of personalized experiences.

Food is designed with inspired and skillful technique, though born of familiar comforts. Hearty and mouth-watering meals with a sense of familiarity are done in a homemade style using fresh, local and seasonal ingredients.

We look forward to the honour of sharing our appetite for life with you.

Pourhouse embraces a singularly essential part of Vancouver – its own history.

  1. Does the invitation extend to the many bearded homeless gentlemen of the neighbourhood? Will you also invite them in for free food and beard discussion? Or is this a hipsters-only event?
