Best value happy hour in Vancouver

wow thanks for the link, kind of a bummer , but maybe not too surprising that most of the places are only offering deals for literally 1 hour, pretty chintzy compared to HH deals in the states, and as mentioned the beer specials never seem to be for full pints, and I'm also not looking to get half price if I have to spend $15 to get it, was hoping for more $5-10 small plates/bar food deals like you get in Seattle or even Bellingham

Fresh whole wheat pasta

It looks expensive and funny how it doesn't seem to list what types of pasta they make anywhere on the website

Fresh whole wheat pasta

checked out T&T downtown and surprisingly they had none at all, surprising just that Richmond would have it and not them

I know Superstore has it but don't want to go that far and having trouble finding a place with a decent/good selection (fetucine and linguine preferred) in the downtown core , reasonably priced as well so Capers, WF and Choices are last resorts

looks like its still @ BCLS will give it a go, but ultimately what i'm really trying to find is something under the radar that is cheaper than Red Racer (my fave IPA , but still a bit too pricey ) those 650 ml bombers always work out to be more to way more expensive than RR

i liked the Hopparazzi , bought it a few times when it was "on sale" at BCLS , but i prefer even them hoppier and more citrusy like the RR , FT and SB

I like all those 3 as well , but RR is actually $13.40 (bought it last night) @BCLS (.063/ml) funny I was a huge fan of the Switchback as well but last time not so much and ( maybe cause did side by side with RR ) and FT although very good is definetely too pricey , funny though as for as BI beers they are not good BUT the "Artisan (ya right) IPA is my go to beer as its imo THE best beer at that price at the BCLS , its not a great IPA but s
at that price it is a good beer , beats the shit out of all the crappy cheap lagers , ales and those styles of beer (of which I am not a fan at all ) btw where do u buy the Brassneck and 33 acres ?

Wow, didn't even occur to me when posting that my question would get swallowed up by such a Toronto-centric board

In downtown Ottawa, just want simple food done well , burgers etc.., and hopefully some local micro-brews on tap as well, hidden gems a bonus as in delis that make killer sandwiches and the like
