Hopworks Urban Brewery, a Portland-based brewpub with two locations in the Rose City, will open a new 6,000-square-foot brewery and restaurant in east Vancouver this fall.
The new brewpub, which is currently under construction, will be located at 17707 SE Mill Plain Boulevard.
“The beautiful city of Vancouver has a great sense of community, it’s packed with families and people who love craft beer and it has a rich brewing history,” said Hopworks brewmaster and founder, Christian Ettinger. “We have set out to deepen our roots in the Pacific Northwest and Vancouver has everything we’re looking for. We can’t wait to start brewing.”
The new site will feature a seven barrel brewhouse with plans to brew 1,000 barrels of beer in the first year. The brewery will serve exclusive beers made with organic barley malted in Vancouver, with a combination of local, organic and Salmon-Safe hops from Washington and Oregon.
The restaurant will seat more than 300 people and, like the brewery’s two Portland locations, will offer comfort food prepared with local and thoughtfully-sourced ingredients.
The building is a Salmon-Safe Certified development, achieved through best practices in stormwater management, pest control, sediment control, water conservation and irrigation. Additionally, it contains a solar array, native landscaping and energy and water efficient design. The building will also feature ample bike parking.
PacTrust is leading construction of the project, with Portland-based Siteworks handling interior design.
