If you can locate the Harbour Centre in downtown Vancouver, then you should be able to locate Steamworks, which sits across the street on the side closer to the waterfront. The inside has a modern feel to it, with the restaurant being located downstairs from the bar. But what's with that gingerbread scent in the air? The windows looking outside are wide, giving you a good look at downtown activity.

About seven regular styles are offered, such as oatmeal stout, pale ale, and IPA. The seasonal being offered was a witbier, which I didn't try. Kostrizer was also offered on-tap as a guest beer. The beers I tried was quite good, especially the oatmeal stout on-nitro, which was a tasty treat. No fancy glassware here: "sleeves" (shaker pint glass) and imperial pints are the glass types offered. It took some time to be served from the bartender, but after that 20 minute string of orders she dealt with, she turned out to be easy to chat with, and she helped with one of my beer-related questions.

Steamworks gets a good mark from this BA. It's easy to find. And there are several good styles of beer made and offered here. Try it out.

A large venue in a very good location near Gastown and N. Vancouver ferry.
Their beer menu has about 17 beers on tap and features IPA/APA and sour style beers.
Excellent Thai Chicken Pizza.

Still going since the 1990’s, Steamworks has stayed current by injecting contemporary styles (ie. hoppy) while capitalizing on its outstanding location. The newer pub addition upstairs offers a good selection of bar and booth seating with a spacious atmosphere. Good selection of house brews on tap along with food from the restaurant. Friendly staff, efficient service and enough TVs to catch the Canucks game.

OK, I was surprised how much I ended up enjoying this place. I was expecting total tourist trap mediocre. Their beer is actually very good and the food is tasty as well. We were fortunate to get window seats during the noon hour without waiting, even though the place was very busy.

Huge place with an upstairs and downstairs. Had their Jasmine IPA which was well above average. There are pool tables downstairs. Didn't have any food, but it's a great place to go with a group of friends.
