Nothing beats a refreshingly cold beer enjoyed outdoors on a sunny afternoon. With a bounty of great patios dotted in and around the city, we’ve complied a list on Vancouver’s best, where you can throw back a pint or two.

Tap & Barrel

Not only does Tap & Barrel offer a progressive beer program along with tasty comfort food, but is also offers its patrons a sizable patio to enjoy such libations on. No matter which Tap & Barrel location you visit (Olympic Village, Coal Harbour and North Van) you will be spoiled for choice when it comes to sitting outdoors.

Darby’s Public House

Beer drinkers will wonder why they waited so long to visit Darby’s Public House in Kits. This non-pretentious bar patio is open from Monday to Friday, from 11 a.m. to 1 a.m. and boasts an impressive line-up of B.C. craft beers and decent food specials. It doesn’t hurt that the patio is sun-drenched most of the day and you won’t be frowned upon for showing up in sandals and beach wear.

Mahony & Sons

Located at Stamps Landing, this casual Irish-themed pub boasts arguably one of the best outdoor patios in the entire city. Enjoy a pint of Guinness on the 250 seat patio, which overlooks False Creek and is drenched in sunlight for most of the day.
