What's On Tap?



In 1995, when we first took hold of our historic Gastown brewpub location, we discovered that the building had a rare steam heat system. A remnant from forward thinkers of a century past.

Our brewmaster had only read of steam powered brewing, but had never seen a functional steam brewery. These are very rare indeed. We ventured forth, experimented, and created a one-of-a-kind steam generated brewery. The only one in Canada.

To our pleasure, we found our test brews to be distinctively fresh and flavourful.

For nearly 20 years, beer aficionados have been migrating to our Steamworks brewpub for a taste of these unconventional beers. Now, with the advent of our bottled beers, you can take the brewpub experience home with you.


“Thank you again for everything! We were super impressed with everyone involved. You are so welcome for the card and our gift of gratitude! You truly deserve it. We also wish you all the best for the future! “

"Sherry and I had a wonderful time last night. The food was excellent, very tasty, nice proportions and very nicely prepared. The beer was excellent, especially the first glass which came from a cask.  We were seated with a couple who was a real beer person. He knew all about cask beers and micro breweries and we got a real education on types of beers and events like Steamworks put on. They were really great people.  We were very surprised at the number of people at the event. We were also extremely surprised at how busy Steamworks was on a Wednesday night." Gary Sutherland

Wine Room

The perfect spot for a small, intimate gathering of up to 40 people.  Set amidst our wine cellar, the wine room is an ideal venue for seminars, meetings, luncheons and dinners.  In this cozy dark wood atmosphere you will enjoy the privacy of your own dining room and still be connected to all of the energy of a busy establishment.

Combine this with a very elegant, over the top stylish lounge and private atrium and you have the perfect setting for a unique event. The Uber Lounge seats between 50–122 in intimacy and comfort, while our Atrium can hold an equal number for a ceremony and later be converted to a dance floor and or buffet. Whether for a wedding, rehearsal party, a stand-up cocktail reception, or sit-down dinner you can enjoy the privacy of your own space in one of Vancouver's most surprising rooms.

Ella & Chris

“It was exceptional! The staff was outstanding, the food was outstanding (quality, timing of it all, and quantity was perfect for group size), and the space was beautiful. We heard many great comments through the evening and next day. Thank you for everything.”

Guido & Heather

“It was perfect. We will be writing you guys a letter about that soon. The venue, the food, the staff... all above our expectations.”

Fraser & Lissa

“I wanted to thank you earlier but have been in Seattle with Cindy's parents. The wedding went better than we could have imagined and many guests said that it was one of, if not the most enjoyable weddings they had ever been to. Thanks for all the work you did in such little time; the rooms looked great and everything transpired without a hitch. The food and service were both excellent as well. Thank Mike and the service staff for us. It was a fantastic night that we will never forget. “

Mark & Cindy

“Thank you again for everything! We were super impressed with everyone involved. You are so welcome for the card and our gift of gratitude! You truly deserve it. We also wish you all the best for the future! “
