Main Street Brewing's building is rooted in history. In fact, it was constructed in the early 1900s and was the home to one of the first breweries in Vancouver. Main Street is in Brewery Creek, which is the neighborhood that started the Vancouver brewery scene over 100 years ago. Today, it's home to many breweries such as 33 Acres, Brassneck, and, of course, Main Street Brewing.
Here's a look inside the brewery:
Main Street Brewing has four main year-round beers. It offers the Main Street Pilsner, the Naked Fox IPA (an especially dry IPA), the Kingpin Pale Ale (a fruity beer with hints of papaya), and the Fruit Bomb kettle sour.
The brewery also offers seasonal selections such as the Sour Peach Fruit Bomb, the Barking Mad Plum Porter, and the Electric Torpedo White IPA. They also like to create special beers for the brewery's anniversary, such as the Double IPA (two year anniversary) and the Quadrupel Belgian Ale (four year anniversary).
In case you get a little hungry, Main Street has you covered. They offer nachos, chicken wings, and sandwiches. There are vegetarian options as well, such as the veggie wrap and vegetarian tacos.
Despite the fact that they offer food, Main Street Brewing's tagline is "The main thing is the beer!" So don't forget to have a brew or two. Not that you would.
The brewery is open Monday–Thursday from 2–11pm and Friday–Sunday from 12-11pm. If you want to set up a tour, you need to contact them directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. They also suggest brewery tours through Vancouver Brewery Tours.
