craig-carsonCornerstone Café & Taphouse is the go to establishment for me. It’s all there: fabulous food, 16 taps of the best beers including the local Gladstone Brewing Co., a complete beverage menu and friendly service. I love the central down town location that fills the room with interesting people from all walks of life for intimate lunches, delicious dinners and evening entertainment.

The Roy!! Smell of the ocean. Friendly atmosphere. Always something going on. Live music talent fundraisers. Lots of fun!

laura-agnewFor me it’s hanging in Cumberland on the patio or at the ‘Whale’. It’s so wonderful to have a choice of good beer and food.

jace-piersonA good beer needs a good atmosphere! For me, it’s when the tide is right. My wife and I will take the boat up the river to the White Whale. It has an awesome waterside patio and a great selection of beer and food.  Or The Gladstone’s patio with one or two of those epic pizzas from Pizzeria Guerrilla . . .

Leif Jason colourI really enjoy the feeling of Gladstone Brewing. It feels like a present day version of Cheers. I feel like going to hang out even when I don’t want to drink!

andy-macdougallMy fave watering hole is Cumberland Brewing Company. They have a great selection of beers, their Muffuletta is as good as any I tasted in New Orleans, their staff is always pleasant, and the outdoor patio inviting and fun.
