“We are a neighborhood brewery,” said Hopworks Brewmaster and Founder, Christian Ettinger. “Part of being a good neighbor is simple – treat the neighborhood with love and respect, and always serve your neighbors the best beer you can. Vancouver is packed with families and people who love craft beer, and it has a rich brewing history. There is such a great community feeling here, so we are happy to share our beer and space with the people of this beautiful city.”
The new brewery, which features an 8 barrel brewhouse and restaurant with seating for 300, continues the commitment to sustainability that made Hopworks the first Certified B Corporation brewery in the Northwest. The brewpub will serve a number of beers exclusively for Vancouver, including a new Imperial IPA that debuts on Friday. All beers are brewed with thoughtfully sourced ingredients from Washington and Oregon, including organic barley malted in Vancouver, and a combination of local, organic, and Salmon-Safe hops.
In true Hopworks fashion, the Vancouver site is at the intersection of two bike paths, with plenty of bike parking. The brewpub is a Salmon-Safe Certified development and contains a 10Kw solar array, native landscaping, and energy and water efficient design.
“Like our other locations, the Vancouver brewpub is also family friendly,” added Ettinger. “You can take in views of Mt. Hood from the mezzanine, hang out in the beer garden, or relax with a pint in the lounge.” The Hopworks kitchen will serve a variety of the classic Hopworks pizzas, sandwiches, and burgers along with a number of new menu items.
