Big brewpub restaurant set to open in major Vancouver affordable housing development

Something is brewing in Mount Pleasant...

A longstanding Metro Vancouver brewery is set to open a brewpub restaurant at the base of a new high-profile rental housing development in Mount Pleasant.

Steamworks has signage up in the windows at the base of the Aspen, a 145-unit new build on Main Street between 6th and 7th, which was developed as a key new "affordable housing" option in Vancouver.

The brewpub restaurant will occupy ground-floor retail space and, per the signage, will boast a patio and offer brunch and happy hour and, if the original Steamworks in Gastown is any indicator, lunch and dinner service along with plenty of taps.

Steamworks launched in 1995 and operates a taproom at its Burnaby brewery in addition to its flagship Gastown brewpub, located along the waterfront.

While the forthcoming Mount Pleasant Steamworks is not yet listed on the main company website there is an independent Instagram account already up and running (@steamworksmountpleasant) with some teaser imagery as posts, but no further details. We've reached out to Steamworks to get more info on the new venture for the brewery.
