Long wooden banquet-style tables make for a communal atmosphere at the Alibi Room. Head to this Railtown favourite and saddle up to the bar with your crew to enjoy a plethora of beers on tap, rotating casks, and a select few ciders mostly from all over B.C. If beer’s not your thing, the folks behind the bar can craft you a cocktail from the well-tailored list or pour a pretty great glass of wine.
This modern tavern on the edge of Gastown isn’t German per se, but the impressive list of brews, lively crowd and European beer hall like atmosphere make it a great place to down a few pints in honour of Oktoberfest. The 50 taps feature a rotating selection of local and imported craft ales, stouts, porters, lagers, wheats and ciders available in both small and large sizes. Your best bet: order the daily “Fratbat” tasting flight to sample a variety of different brews and then soak up the booze with a charcuterie plate with house-made condiments and warm fresh baked bread.
If beer is your main focus, it’s difficult to have eyes for any other bar than the Alibi Room. With 50 taps of constantly rotating, often-hard-to-find craft brews and staff with a deep knowledge of the art and science of beer making, plus a solid menu of nibbles and entrees to round out the experience, you’re sure to have good times here. Its location at Alexander and Main makes it slightly off the beaten path and its sunny, warm, industrial and timeless interior hits all the latest design trends.
