One of Vancouver’s original brewpubs, Steamworks’ historic location next to Waterfront station and overlooking the beautiful North Shore Mountains makes this a must-stop spot for any beer lover. For more than 25 years, Steamworks has been at the forefront of craft brewing innovation and the brew pub experience. Named after the central steam system that powers its’ Gastown brewhouse and world-famous steam clock in Vancouver B.C. Steamworks proudly brews distinct, delicious, and award-winning craft beers. In 1995, when Steamworks first occupied their historic Gastown brewpub location, they discovered that the building had a rare steam heat system. Steamworks’ brewmaster had only read of steam powered brewing but had never seen a functional steam brewery. These are very rare indeed. The team ventured forth, experimented, and created a one-of-a-kind steam generated brewery. To this day, the only steam-powered brewery in all of Canada.
With 20 rotating taps featuring Steamworks’ year-round core lineup, seasonal favorites, and Brew Pub exclusives, you’ll never run short of options to the 10 Tap Taster Paddle. Of course, nothing elevates good beer like good food. From classic pub fare like Fish N’ Chips (battered with Steamworks’ very own Lions Gate Lager, of course) to modern plant-based creations like the Vegan Goddess Bowl, there’s something for every palate on the Brew Pub menu.
Beyond beer, Steamworks has always been known for its eclectic and distinctively historic atmosphere. With more than 700 seats spread across multiple rooms on two floors, the brew pub offers visitors the opportunity to immerse themselves in the Steamworks Brewing experience. A number of rooms within the brew pub are also available for private bookings, accommodating a wide variety of events from business meetings to weddings.
