Best Beer Experience

Knowledge. Atmosphere. Great beer.

The latest craze to take over the province, if you don’t count the many years put in by the crazed brewers who thought they could make a difference and have. So many places do it right and we’d like you to choose your favourite experience. Be it a saison on a farmstead, or a pilsner at your neighbourhood haunt, this is all about the delivery of a great beer.

A great gathering of people that isn’t based around an entertainer, but around the straightforward assembly of a great group of people.

Hospitality Group of the Year

Service. Professionalism. Surprise.

What hospitality group delivered surprises that kept you wondering what was next, consistency that kept you coming back, and delivered it all without the overbearing of a giant corporate entity.

Best Atmosphere

Well designed venues are cropping up everywhere, but we’re looking for something a bit more… atmosphere… when everything, and we mean everything, from the design, to the crowd, to the little details that make you simply go “Ahhhhhhhhh”.

Best Bar/Pub

Comfort. Quality. Drink.

Comfort plays a big roll in a great pub or bar, as well as solid food, great beer, and substantial talking and laughing. Neighborhood or downtown, what establishment feels like home to you?

Best Bartending Personality

That smile on their face and your drink magically appearing before you’ve uttered a word, we’re looking for THAT person who is always on and isn’t overt to being a little fussy once in awhile.

Best Hotel Lounge

Must be attached to a Hotel or inside a Hotel. Quality. Professionalism.

Hotels always bring a crowd, from the suave international set, to the hipster local. What hotel lounge brings together the world and provides cocktails, nibbles and entertainment that can’t be found on the street corner.

Best Local DJ

Lives in Vancouver. Performs more than 6 times a year locally.

He/She spots you in the crowd and always knows what you want to hear.
He/She has the nod to their head that is as infectious as a late season cold.
One thing that He/She never misses though, is the ability to make you dance like no one is watching.

Best New Venue

Opened in the past year. Still Open. Crowd.

What do you consider the best new venue that has opened in the past year?

Best Subculture Venue

Independent. Culture. Talent.

Fiercely independent and always pushing the edge of what might be popular in Berlin, but hasn’t crossed the shores yet and sometimes feels like they’ve just stepped over the boundary, until you realize the following year that they actually knew what they were doing.
