A Variety Of Menu Items To Choose From

Howe Sound Pub Squamish

My wife and I had a great meal in the Brew Pub, while watching the hockey game on their; Big Screen TV.

The menu is large and with a variety of choices that would suit most everyone. Below, is just a sample of what we enjoyed for our dinner a few seasons ago.


Howe Sound Brew Pub Deep Fried Pickles

We heard from a local resident that the Deep Fried Pickles were a favorite and definitely a great way to start off while enjoying a craft beer.

We had never heard of deep fried pickles before, so we had to give them a try. A great seasoned coating, along with a ranch dipping sauce, we both thought they were an excellent choice!

BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwich;

Howe Sound Pub BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwich

My wife enjoyed a very large smoked pulled pork bunwich with sweet corn relish and coleslaw in the bun.

A unique {Rail Ale BBQ Sauce} added, making this mouth-watering and delicious. I was jealous!

Jambalaya Rice Bowl;

Howe Sound Pub Jambalaya Rice Bowl

I selected something different and something definitely not found in a typical restaurant pub.

The Jambalaya Rice Bowl contained pieces of chicken, shrimp, spicy sausage and okra, all in a mildly spicy Cajun sauce.


Howe Sound Brew Pub Hemp Fudge Brownies

Again, on suggestions from the locals who frequent the pub, they insisted we try the Hemp Fudge Brownies, so we made sure to leave room for dessert and were we ever glad we did!

These delicious brownies are served warm, with melting white and dark chocolate chunks on top, toasted hemp seeds, with ice-cream and chocolate sauce. Definitely recommended and worth saving room for!

A wonderful meal served with amazing craft beer, friendly service all in a perfect setting in downtown Squamish.

A Brief History Of The Brew Pub

Howe Sound Craft Beers

British Columbia’s very own Mitchell and Frank Appleton pioneered North America’s first modern craft brewery back in 1980. They were known as the true founders of micro-brewing in Canada.

This also became known as the start of craft beer brewing!



John Mitchell was brought up to assist in designing the now {Howe Sound Brewery} and was also the  brewer who developed their first recipes. For decades now, Howe Sound continues to brew quality craft style beer, using only unfiltered 100% barley mash.

The pure and natural quality is evident in each and every brand brewed today.
