About Bitter Tasting Room


Bitter Tasting Room specializes in local and imported craft beers and bar food. The focus is on supporting local breweries and distilleries in and around the Greater Vancouver area, with an inspired mix of offerings from some of BC’s best independent breweries and noteworthy European and American varieties.

Guests can order by the glass, growler, or flight and pair their beverage with some food options off the Snack, Nibble, and Share menu. By designing a menu with dishes that enhance the flavours of their beer offerings, Bitter Tasting Room has elevated the casual nature of beer drinking to an appreciated art form.

And while a classic glass of beer is the Bitter beverage of choice, an assortment of spirits, two Okanogan Crush Pad wines on tap, and some unique beer cocktails complete the beverage list. Whether sharing the dining experience with friends or meeting new ones at the bar, Bitter Tasting Room is a friendly space to enjoy a quality beer and a comforting bite to eat.
