Steamworks Brewing Company information
The signature beer at this huge brewpub on the edge of Gastown is Lions Gate Lager. It's a refreshing summer tipple, but the Empress IPA is even better. Popular with tourists and clocked-off office workers, Steamworks has an enticing pub-grub menu.The monthly Green Drinks night (www.greendrinks.org/bc/vancouver) is where chatty enviro-types flirt with each other.
Ask about special seasonal brews (the summer wheat beers and hardy winter ales are best). There are outdoor tables for summer drinkers, but the best views across the water are from inside on the main floor, where several tables face the mountain-framed Burrard Inlet. There's also a liquor store here if you fancy a takeout: Steamworks recently started bottling their beers for the first time.
