Bitter Tasting Room

The Heather group has done it again; the highly anticipated “Bitter” opened their doors this winter with great success.

Nestled near the corner of West Hastings and Carrall at 16 West Hastings Street, the Bitter Tasting Room balances industrial chic with warm pub-style informality. Bare brick walls, exposed beer kegs and open kitchen sit well with the simple but comfy furniture.

From the moment you walk in you can’t miss the 12ft high beer coolers. The wall is stocked with English ales, Asian lagers, German wheat beers, local craft porters and dozens of others. The place was alive with energy and everyone having a great time. Taking a seat in a small table on the side of the bar I had a great view of the horse shoes shaped bar and the kitchen.

Enjoy the look of the large pretzels, scotch eggs and pork pies, I felt like I had been transported back to London.  Smoked sausage, house sauerkraut and whole smoked ham hocks are also on the menu.  2 flights are served every night, rotating ever couple of days. It is a beer fans heaven and hard to choose what country to start you taste in.

If you’re a beer lover, this is a must visit.
