It’s always nice to find a refuge at the end of your day, and the comfortable and inviting atmosphere of our tap room is intended to be just that. Unwind with a pint of your favourite BC craft beer or try something new as part of a craft cider or spirit tasting flight.

Our 38-seat bar and secluded back patio are the perfect places to relax and gather with friends over good food and drink. Open late every day, you’re always welcome at this Refuge.

Beer & Cider

High quality, interesting craft beer and cider are at the heart of our drinks menu. We have carefully selected 21 delicious BC craft beers and five BC craft ciders including a collection of ales, pilsners, lagers, stouts, and sours, and easy-drinking ciders with distinctive notes of fruit and spices. Enjoy them all by the glass or choose any three and build your own craft beer or cider tasting flight.

Spirits & Wine

We offer a curated selection of BC craft spirits and wines on tap. Sourced from artisan distillers from across the province, these small-batch spirits and liqueurs are best enjoyed neat or on the rocks. Wines on tap have been chosen for their unique tasting notes and ability to stand alone; from opulent reds to bright whites and effervescent sparkling wines. Enjoy a full pour by the glass or select any three to craft a wine tasting flight.


Our menu is centered around delicious, sharable snacks sourced from local providers. Choose from small plates like warm, marinated olives, cheesy breadsticks, salty snacks, wasabi peas, cured sausage, charcuterie from our neighbours and friends at Bull & Sons Delicatessen, and Chef Jon’s incomparable scotch egg.
