Now, for those of you wondering what I meant when I said "14 wines on barrel" this is one of the neatest parts of Tap & Barrel. They have a special system where they actually tap a barrel of wine and are able to pour individual glasses without oxygen sneaking in and ruining the wine. So, each and every glass is like it has been poured from a freshly opened bottle of wine. How awesome is that?!
Overall, I loved Tap & Barrel and definitely see myself making my way back plenty this summer...whether it be for hockey playoffs in July (you know it's going to happen), or for a caesar on the patio. I was there in the evening, but you can tell from a glance that they have one of the best patios in Vancouver...with a view of Science World and BC Place to boot! So, if you're looking for a new place to grab a wobbly pop, make your way to Tap & Barrel...you won't regret it.
My Red Roof Cider from Orchard Hill. ($7.50) I loved the way that all of the tables had been branded with the Tap & Barrel logo.
Hummus: extra virgin olive oil, paprika, pine nuts, wood stone oven flatbread. ($11) There was also some lemon juice or something of the like squeezed on top that took this hummus to a whole other level...delicious!
My view during the game. How often do you see a bunch of TV's surrounded by that many kegs? Not to mention that many taps all in a row! And just to clarify, this was the one and only 3 second time frame that I saw these chairs empty. We got there at 8pm and they barely had room for two!
Yam fries with house mayo...scrumptious! ($5)
