Best brewery and brewpub patios in Vancouver

Apr 28 2022, 10:00 pm

Vancouver might as well be called brewery-city, as far as we’re concerned.

With dozens of breweries and brew-pubs right here in the city, and more opening up all the time, it’s truly a great time to be alive for the beer drinker.

There’s nothing quite like grabbing a cold beer with some friends and enjoying the sunshine during patio season.

From small side patios to sprawling situations, these brewery patios are the best in Vancouver.

Parallel 49 has some killer hops and an even better patio to enjoy them on. Plus, the brewery has just reopened its massive 100-seat beer garden for the summer – even more incentive to check out the brewery and soak up some rays.

Faculty Brewing

A post shared by PATIO (@patiovancouver)

This “open-source, green-practice driven, friendly & inclusive craft brewery” in East Van has a secretly great little patio tucked around its side, only open on a seasonal basis. Pouring some really solid beers as well as local kombucha from Oddity Kombucha (which is brewed in the same space), Faculty is a must-stop spot for patio drinks.

Address: 1830 Ontario Street, Vancouver
Phone: 778-716-6794


Electric Bicycle Brewing

With its rainbow-painted picnic tables and irreverently named beers – think T-Bex Peach Witbier and Lizard Wizard West Coast IPA – Electric Bicycle is a great spot to take in some sun. It’s also got three different kinds of grilled cheese sandwiches to soak up all that beer, so you’ll never go hungry.

Address: 20 East 4th Avenue, Vancouver
Phone: 604-709-9939



This Italian and West Coast-inspired brewery serves up pizza in addition to its great lineup of craft brews. Luppolo also has a sneaky patio along the side of its tasting room, with a few picnic tables and some covered seating, too.

Strange Fellows

Not only does Strange Fellows Brewing have a great, spacious patio, but it also often has food trucks parked right outside, so you can get some grub to go with your brew. Some of its most popular beers include the Talisman pale ale and Jongleur wit beer – both stellar choices for a sunny patio.

If you’re an IPA fan, Superflux is the place to be. With a beautiful and spacious interior, cool can designs, and a covered patio with lots of space, this is one of our top picks for East Van breweries.

Container Brewing is tucked away in an industrial area in East Van, but this brewery is not to be missed! With some really solid craft beers and a patio right out in the sunshine, it’s a great place to spend an afternoon. Plus, the Burdy food truck is usually parked out front serving up chicken parm sandwiches.

Address: 1216 Franklin Street, Vancouver
Phone: 778-404-0657



This iconic Vancouver brewery has its first brewpub location in Gastown and its taproom in Burnaby, but this summer, Mount Pleasant will also be home to a brand new Steamworks location. The spot is looking massive with an even bigger patio to rival the one in Gastown, but both locations are a great choice for a patio beer.

Address: 375 Water Street, Vancouver


Strathcona Beer

Serving up pizza and beer, Strathcona Beer is a local go-to spot for a reason. The brewery also frequently does cool collabs with other local businesses, like its Dank Mart Blue Candy Ale beer from earlier this year. The spot also has a great patio, of course.

Address: 895 East Hastings Street, Vancouver
