Advice: Go for the beer and try something that you wouldn’t find anywhere else.
This vibrant room is always filled with what seems to be patrons who are well educated on the many beers on offer. Their beer list numbers 100+ different beers, with 25+ beers on tap, others in casks or by the bottle. They have one of the largest beer selections of any restaurant in the city and they aren’t afraid of offering new beers to their devoted customers.
I was in for the food, though you couldn’t miss accompanying the food with a beer and I had the Howe Sound 3 Beavers Imperial Ale ($5.75). I ordered Chinatown Noodle Bowl with tofu ($13), Asian greens and peanut dressing. The menu offering is rather simple, you’ve got a selection of small & share plates, salads, sandwiches and larger plates. My go to guy for all things beer is Rick Green who is known as @BCBrews on Twitter, anything that I would ever want to know about beer I would ask Rick, he is a valuable resource for the team at Alibi as well, and he was one of the reasons that I revisited Alibi for dinner. I have always loved the exposed brick walls, shared table seating and the private bar/room downstairs for larger parties.
