It was two years ago in 2014 when we first visited Tap and Barrel Coal Harbour and we loved their cocktails and shared plates.
Now let's fast forward to 2016 when we discover that Tap and Barrel Olympic Village has sparkling wine on tap. Tap and Barrel Olympic Village is a short walk away from Main Street/Science World skytrain station. It's a beautiful short walk along the seaside and then you are at Tap and Barrel.
We met on a sunny Wednesday evening and even though it was Happy Hour when we arrived at 5:30pm with house wines for $4 and Wine Wednesdays with wine flights on special at $1 discount, my heart was set on trying their new sparkling wine on tap for $9 a glass.
Carolyn ordered the Orchard Hill cider and when I ordered the sparkling wine the server said he needed to check if it was available. Oh no! My heart sank and I was browsing the menu to see what my second choice would be if he was to truly disappoint me. Luckily he returned with a champagne flute topped with Tap and Barrel sparkling wine. The sparkling wine was delicious, light and bubbly. We enjoyed our drinks with an appetizer of deep fried pickles while we waited for our girlfriend to arrive.
Tap and Barrel is a great place for sharing tapas style which is exactly what we did. We ordered the Maui Wowie pizza, pulled bacon poutine and handmade guac and salsa. I loved being able to try different dishes with my glass of sparkling wine. Perfect evening combination with girlfriends.
