The unique brews aren’t the only reason to stop by Howe Sound. The food is pretty great, too!
Start off with a traditional appetizer like poutine, or try something a little different like the fresh coconut ginger mussels. Howe Sound takes their menu an extra step by providing the recommended brew pairing for each item on the menu.
The burgers and yam fries are quite popular, but don’t be afraid to step outside of your comfort zone at Howe Sound. The menu offers everything from authentic butter chicken to jambalaya rice bowls and a daily pot pie. You really can’t go wrong with a menu like this.
And finally, there’s dessert. The brewpub offers a bourbon pumpkin deep friend cheesecake. Are you more of a chocolate lover? Don’t worry- they also have a hemp fudge brownie that is both tasty and gluten friendly.
Howe Sound takes things one step further by offering live music every Friday and Saturday night, and there’s no cover charge. You can hear everything from blues and reggae, to rock, funk and fusion. The live music really adds to the laid back vibe at Howe Sound, so we highly recommend catching a show when you can. It’s an extra special treat after enjoying a long day exploring. You can hear the music while you sit outside and enjoy one of the best patios in Squamish.
