I have always really liked this place. And it's mainly because of the atmosphere.

It is situated right at the entrance of the gastown district. Nice big place, very nice and clean. Has a wonderful downstairs bar area with the most comfortable chairs I have ever sat at in a brewery. Also has plenty of tv's with hockey on, and pool tables too. Also, the view is excellent.

The beer is good, but not spectacular. However, the Great Pumpkin is the best Pumpkin beer I have ever had. There are usually 8 beers or so on draft when I have been there.

The food is also good... and was served quickly by very nice and helpful employees.

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.
