Hop in Brew

213 12 Ave. SW

Talk about juxtaposition. The Hop In Brew fits in with the 1st Street clubs like Nelson Mandela fits in at an Alliance Party fund-raiser. Once a Victorian house, this fine establishment is easily recognized by the large sign reading, "PUB."

While the Hop In Brew has fairly quiet music and no dance floor, it has several things which are sorely lacking in neighbouring establishments: service stairs at the back, a veranda, table service, pool tables and foosball, just to name a few.

If you should venture out to this Amsterdam-style watering-hole, you can expect tasty pizza, reasonable prices, friendly staff and, best of all, you can actually carry on a conversation without making yourself hoarse.
