Scout’s alphabetical Craft Beer Atlas of Vancouver was designed to grow with our brewing scene, so from time to time – like right now – we add new entries.
Launched in the Spring of 2019, The Magnet quickly emerged as a reliable place to acquaint oneself with the freshest pleasures of British Columbian craft beer. It is located at 309 West Pender Street (just west of Victory Square) in a heritage, brick-walled space designed by local firm Simcic + Uhrich and made especially colourful by the artwork of Perrin Grauer (not to mention some tight branding from Post Projects). The 90-seat, counter-service operation is owned by the same folks behind Gastown’s popular Alibi Room and Mt. Pleasant’s trailblazing Brassneck Brewery, so they know a thing or three about making quality beers, pulling variety from taps and dishing out good food for the thirsty.
