Brassneck Brewery Now Open in Vancouver


VANCOUVER, BC – More than a year after it was first announced, a long-awaited community-minded brewery has finally opened in Vancouver’s Mount Pleasant neighbourhood.

Brassneck Brewery – founded by partners Nigel Springthorpe (co-owner of the Alibi Room) and Conrad Gmoser (ex-Steamworks) – quietly opened its doors and welcomed its first customers last Wednesday October 2nd.

The brewery is open daily for take-home growler sales and on-site sampling in a 40+ seat taproom, with capacity to offer up to 12 beers at any time. According to a recent profile on the Scout Magazine website, some of the beers for the launch included…:

A straight up single-hopped pale (“Brassneck Ale”), a low ABV session lager (“No Brainer”), a Falconer’s Flight dry-hopped pale (“Passive Aggressive”), an orange-hued 5 grain weisse beer (“Multiweizen”), a White IPA w/ Galaxy hops, and an unnamed Russian Imperial Stout.

While there is no kitchen on site, Brassneck has partnered with a number of local food trucks to provide food that customers can bring in to enjoy while sampling beer. Yolk’s Breakfast will be on hand to serve brunch from 11:00 AM to 3:00 PM on Saturdays and Sundays, and a rotating line-up of trucks is in place for the 5:30 to 8:30 PM slot each day.
