Steamworks is a piece of Nostalgia for me. I discovered it when I had just turned 20. I knew absolutely nothing about craft beer, including the fact that it existed. The girl I was with asked for "something wheaty, like a Begian." That sentence in itself confused me, but when I had the witbier it was like a whole new world opened up in front of me.

Flash forward: 2007. The revisit. I tried three of the offerings, the Porter, IPA, and Witbier, and all were adequate if not slightly above average for the style. There is two levels, both spacious and relaxing. The girlfriend and I sat by a window, and did the crossword, read, and were served promptly when our beers emptied. There were about 6-8 beers on tap when we were there, all house offerings, two were seasonals. All we had for food was an order of yam fries, which is hard to screw up, and they didn't. All in all a great place to waste an afternoon with some good beer. (935 characters)

First time ever in Vancouver, was looking to sample some Canadian microbrews. Headed down to gastown (pretty cool location) and into Steamworks.

From the entrance, the place looks tiny and upscale, but the hostess leads us down a sweet staircase in the back into a cool basement area. We get seated on some big chairs and couch with some sort of a cool, old trunk for a table. Pretty cool atmosphere.

Order some beer, but they are out of their "Signature Pale Ale", how is that possible I ask? Major deduction for being unable to supply me with a beer they consider to be signature. I order the Empress IPA instead. The Empress was pretty meh. Not much flavor compared to many other IPAs I have had. At least the food was pretty good. (737 characters)

My wife and I were in Vancouver for the weekend and this joint was recommended to us. It's down by the pier in the Gaslamp district, which is a pretty cool part of the city. Really great atmosphere, and the place was packed when we went. Being by the water it seems like they get a lot of tourist traffic from cruise ships and whatnot. Despite being busy we found a seat at the bar and the bartenders were helping us very quickly. They were very knowlegable about their products, as well, which is always a plus. We didn't eat while we were there, but the menu had your bbasic pubfare. The beers ended up being a bit pricey, but to be expected in a tourist trap. Decent beer shop attached to it, also, carrying some US brews for take home. All in all, a good visit. (765 characters)
