In 1995, Steamworks first took hold of their historic, Gastown, Vancouver brewpub location, only to discover the building had a rare steam heating system - a remnant from forward thinkers of a century past. Deep within the building’s core they found a vast network of underground steam pipes – the same pipes that run through Gastown’s historic steam clock. Intrigued by the concept of steam powered brewing, something the brewmaster had only read of but never seen functional, they ventured forth and to create a one-of-a-kind steam generated brewery; the first in Canada. To their pleasure, they found test brews to be distinctively fresh and flavourful.
For over 20 years, beer aficionados have traveled to Steamworks brewpub to savor these unconventional and award winning brews. In 2012, at the height of the craft beer movement, Steamworks proudly launched their bottled beer, offering the best of their full-flavoured brews to bring the brewpub home. Today, their bottled beer can be found in liquor stores across Canada and the USA and even in Europe and Asia. Steamworks continues to brew award-winning classics like Pilsner, Pale Ale, Flagship IPA and a number of limited and seasonal releases, always using the power of steam!
