VANCOUVER, BC – The Georgia Straight reports that Squamish-based brewpub and brewery Howe Sound Brewing is set to open a second location in Vancouver, although no brewing will be taking place on site.
Devil’s Elbow Ale & Whiskey House – named after after Howe Sound’s Devil’s Elbow India Pale Ale – will be located at 562 Beatty St., the address currently occupied by Belgian restaurant Chambar which is closing next weekend and moving down the block.
Trevor Magee, vice president and general manager and Howe Sound, gave the Straight a few details about the new venture:
“It’s going to be a pretty basic, rustic ale house,” said Magee. The restaurant will not brew beer on-site, but it will serve a wide range of Howe Sound Brewing’s brands. It will also offer more than just Howe Sound beer on tap.
“We’re going to showcase emerging craft breweries in the city,” Magee said, and that includes local nanobreweries. The restaurant will carry whiskey products from local craft distilleries.
If all goes as planned, Devil’s Elbow Ale & Whiskey House will open on October 1st.
