In 1995, when Steamworks first took hold of our historic Gastown brewpub location, they discovered that the building had a rare steam heat system. A remnant from forward thinkers of a century past. Steamworks' brewmaster had only read of steam powered brewing, but had never seen a functional steam brewery. These are very rare indeed.

Via Old Faithful - As summer draws to a close we find ourselves heading back to work or school and needing that extra boost just to get us there. As much as we love a piping hot cup of joe it's hard to stomach it when the thermostat is still about to pop. Here's the perfect alternative: pour-over iced coffee. It's a cinch to do and the results are flavourful and packed with pick-me-ups.

Check out our Q+A with Scott about his orchard here.

The good weather is here! If you need something refreshing, reviving, and you want it to go (because you are heading to the beach), look no further than Revolver on Cambie. The coffee connoisseurs have engineering bottled and brewed ice cold coffee that's not on resealable but rather beautiful.
