Grab a cold one in Vancouver's Cambie Village

Cambie Village is a small neighbourhood, which means the places for dedicated beer enjoyment are few. But that doesn’t mean there still aren’t some excellent options for sitting back and enjoying a cold one, even if that means sitting back in your own living room. Here are five great spots for a beer along Cambie. [Image credit: iStock.com/Christopher Ames]

Whether it’s to discuss the movie you just saw at the Park Theatre, a post-work meet-up with friends or a chance to call in the babysitter for a last-minute date night, Biercraft is your best bet on Cambie for amazing Belgian beers. Their list is impressive, and if you’re unfamiliar with the brands, knowledgeable servers will help guide your choices. They also have some great local beers on tap. Their appetizers are eminently sharable, not to mention to die for.

How about a little flamenco with your beer? That’s what’s in store at Kino Café, a tapas and music venue at Cambie and 19th with performances five nights a week. The other two nights showcase either live world music or comedy, so you’re always entertained at this rustic, European-style café. The beer selection may be run of the mill, but it’s cold and refreshing, available by the pitcher, and great for toasting the energetic, passionate dancers pounding the stage in front of you.

Original Joe's

This sports bar at the busy corner of Broadway and Cambie takes you away from the hectic traffic and activity at street level at its second-story restaurant and pub. With big tables for a crowd or more intimate sections for two, it’s not only a great place to watch the game, it also carries its own line of beers from Pilsner to red ale, as well as a couple of selections from Big Rock Brewing and rotating taps of local BC beers. Hearty and delicious pub fare is on offer to make game night complete.

Pronto Caffe

3473 Cambie St, Vancouver, BC V5Z 2W7

While known more for its intimate, bistro-style space and simple yet excellent Italian food, Pronto at Cambie and 18th has a short but strong list of craft beers on tap as well as refreshing Italian brews Peroni and Birra Moretti in the bottle. Come in for a relaxing, beer-accompanied lunch, stop in for a quick beer after work or settle into a cozy evening with pizza and a pint at this quintessential neighbourhood restaurant.
