Next to the Gastown Steam Clock, Steamworks Brewing is an also "not to miss" attraction in Gastown. With large bay windows over-looking Vancouver's harbor and the North Shore mountains - the beer and food service blend in perfectly with the view. Classic and seasonal brews...More

Great place to spend the afternoon with a funny staff. The beers were great and so was the pretzel and Oversized Caramel Apple pie.

Beautifull location right near waterfront and Gastown, where genuine craftbeer is brewed on premise. Nice tastings possible, and dont forget the great pulled pork burger !

This place is a must in Vancouver. If you only drink the beer, take a beer flight. The food is a cut above a diner but good quality and wholesome. Staff are friendly and will guide you through the beer and the food. Choice of...More
