Our Story

Since 1984, BC beer drinkers have experienced the finest handcrafted beers from Canada’s first microbrewery on Granville Island in Vancouver. Granville Island Brewing is dedicated to handcrafting its premium beers according to strict quality standards, using only pure ingredients in the brewing process. This is where the magic happens.
In a time of limited beer options, it became our mission to craft delicious, locally brewed beer with high quality, natural ingredients. All beers are developed in the brewery on Granville Island. Perfecting recipes through small batch gives our Brewmaster, Kevin Emms, full leadership and creativity to develop styles that will truly resonate with craft lovers in British Columbia.

Discover Our Brewery

The Small Batch brewery on the island is Kevin Emms’ playground or “test kitchen” as he develops Granville Island Brewing’s premium, limited release small batch beers, as well as crafting future innovation through trialing new techniques and ideating around styles. Brewery visitors are sure to find exciting variations tested in the taproom for real-time feedback. Our love of flavourful beer runs deep, and it inspired us to open as Canada’s first microbrewery back in 1984.
