Big brewpub restaurant opens in major Vancouver affordable housing development

Something is brewing in Mount Pleasant...

A longstanding Metro Vancouver brewery has opened its doors at their new brewpub restaurant at the base of a new high-profile rental housing development in Mount Pleasant.

Steamworks is now up and running 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 - the company's "first employee-owned location" occupies ground-floor retail space and boasts a spacious patio that will overlook a forthcoming new green space. Opening day was Aug. 10, according to a Steamworks representative.

Steamworks hopes to provide Mount Pleasant with "a new twist on the standard Vancouver taproom." 

The location features 20 Steamworks taps and another 10 for dedicated and rotating guest pours. Open daily from noon, customers will find a full kitchen and bar, and, as soon as some "supply chain hurdles" are overcome, the brewpub's full tap selection. 

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