CRAFT Beer Market is an upscale casual restaurant that serves fresh local food and great craft beer. CRAFT was first started in Calgary during 2011 by founder PJ L’Heureux, and since then the CRAFT movement has expanded into four other locations; Vancouver, Edmonton, Ottawa, and Toronto, with more locations in the planning. The chain is popular for their sophisticated comfort food recipes, over 100 on-tap draft beers, plus their local community involvement in all their locations.

Community Pay-Back

CRAFT is an active contributor to its community wherever possible. The restaurant has partnered with several organizations that contribute to charitable institutions in Vancouver. In four years, CRAFT has rendered 3,000 hours of volunteer work and has raised over $100,000 for the support of the St. Vincent de Paul Society, Mealshare, Vancouver Firefighters' Charitable Society, Camp Goodtimes, and TOMS Shoes, which donates a pair of shoes for every sale under its "One-for-One” program.

CRAFT also follows several earth-friendly initiatives as a part of their sustainability programs, from recycling and composting to green tableware and clean energy.

Fresh Beer

CRAFT Beer Market houses Canada’s largest selection of exceptional draft beers on tap. Anyone who first steps into CRAFT will be awed by the magnificent central island bar, whose steel draft lines are directly connected into CRAFT's glass-enclosed keg room. The beer lines are maintained in perfect condition to ensure ideal temperature and carbonation is achieved in every pint served at CRAFT. The menu offers a large selection of ales, lagers, anomalies, and rotating handles on tap.

CRAFT Club is a program launched by CRAFT for beer lovers to discover more beers at CRAFT. The registered members get to enjoy exclusive access to specials at the restaurant. The registration process can be completed through an iPhone app that helps the user to track and rate beers on the go.
