Bitter Tasting Room specializes in local and imported craft beers and bar food. The focus is on supporting local breweries and distilleries in and around the Greater Vancouver area, with an inspired mix of offerings from some of BC’s best independent breweries and noteworthy European and American varieties. Guests can order by the glass, growler, or flight and pair their beverage with some food options off the Snack, Nibble, and Share menu. By designing a menu with dishes that enhance the flavours of their beer offerings, Bitter Tasting Room has elevated the casual nature of beer drinking to an appreciated art form.
And while a classic glass of beer is the Bitter beverage of choice, an assortment of spirits, two Okanogan Crush Pad wines on tap, and some unique beer cocktails complete the beverage list. Whether sharing the dining experience with friends or meeting new ones at the bar, Bitter Tasting Room is a friendly space to enjoy a quality beer and a comforting bite to eat.

Bitter’s two page menu might seem a little overwhelming, but it’s simple: there’s beer and then everything else. For draft, there’s a short list of their eight rotating craft beers, featuring BC craft brands. There are new and upcoming selections in addition, not to mention the 50+ brands they serve in growlers. They don’t serve these to go, sadly, but nobody’s complaining about bigger jugs to drink from. While it may be the highlight, the beer is complimented by lots of traditional pub fare, including chili, sandwiches and pickled eggs. They add to this with cocktails, whiskey, scotch and wine. If you can’t decide, the servers will be happy to help you with “Flights”, multiple 5oz selections focusing on style, country or season.
