Meet the owner

Local craft beers and fresh ingredients can be hard to come by, but Aaron Hotell is passionate about serving quality local products at the Hawthorne Beer Market and Bistro. Customers of this Surrey hotspot are treated to a rotating showcase of local beers and dishes, combining a sense of community with quality products.

Aaron found that local breweries were eager to sell their products in the area, even if it meant they didn’t sell as much. Local producers wanted to connect with their community and represent their products, and Aaron was happy to accommodate them. So he designed Hawthorne to reflect the passion and effort of those who worked hard to build it and fill its shelves. "There are a lot of people putting energy into products, whether it’s a good local chicken or beer," Aaron says. "We do as much as we can to try and make those things stand out. These producers are not far from here, and I hope people get value out of the great things they're doing with food and drinks."

It was our first time at Hawthorne’s. We had a wonderful time celebrating our daughter’s birthday. The service was outstanding and atmosphere was warm and relaxed. My only complaint would be that there weren’t enough options for those of us who don’t eat meat but your fish was excellent so not to worry. We will definitely be back.

We had a family group of 12 tonight and we all had an amazing time! From the ease of booking to the arrival, to the entire evening, we were impressed. Sadly I did not get the name of our server but we had a reservation tonight 02/16/2019 for 12 at 5:45pm so I’m sure you will find her. She was SO on top of our table, from happy hour to drinks to dinner, total rockstar. There were a lot of former servers at our table tonight and we know what it takes to do the job and do it well. This was the first time for all of us as we came together for dinner and some Axe Throwing from Vancouver, Abbotsford & Chilliwack. We’ll definitely be back and will highly recommend this place to everyone. Thank you!

Our server was attentive and friendly. He asked if we wanted our dinners to come out after we finished our appetizer.... yes, great idea!!!mid way through our appetizer, our dinners arrived. Our server gave us a port and coffee complimentary due to the mix up with the timing of the food. Not the end of the world that the timing with the food was mixed up. The ravioli was ok. I’d stay away from the giant meatball. Was dry and viod of any flavour.

Everything was very good EXCEPT the Brussels Sprouts. Little bits of leaves surrounded by greasy deep fried beer batter was not appealing at all. I thought the sprouts would be whole or maybe cut in half but they were tiny! Didn’t even taste like a vegetable. Server took them off the bill when she saw I left most in the bowl! I didn’t ask her to do this so it was a nice surprise. All other meals were fabulous. For this reason I’d highly recommend Hawthorne. They care about your experience!

Enjoyed it immensely. Will definitely go back. Cozy, comfortable, loved the decor, and the menu had lots of choices. Plus, I really love mussels and there were four varieties on the menu. And the beer selection was amazing. Our server, Dave, was attentive but not smarmy - did a great job - made a couple of beer recommendations, offered us all the extras - dessert, coffee, more drinks etc - he was looking after us and looking after the restaurant, so nicely professional. ALSO, I have to add, and I am sorry I didn't get her name, but there was a young lady not our server, but who came around a couple of times to refresh water and remove plates. She and the waiter integrated seamlessly. We enjoyed the experience and will recommend it to friends.
