Very commercial place, big, and often packed; beers are ok, nothing special. Food is uninteresting. Even if itís a short walk from "home", I go there very seldom, it just looks like a place for tourists at the edge of Gastown. Maloneís is just a block away...

House beers cover the usual styles and the ones I sampled are pretty good. Steamworks is a large space - very deep and with a cozy downstairs. Service was quick and friendly during both of my visits, but I didnít detect a lot of craft-brew knowledge. Lunch was standard pub fare. Great views from certain tables, pricey, a good stop for the ale tourist.

sat in the bar room which had very comfortable stools and booths. late night menu was all that was available for food, but what we got tasted amazing. 5oz sampler of 7 steamworks beers was reasonably priced but food was on par with the rest of downtown vancouver (read little high). not extremely impressed by quality of beer, and while iím normally a dark beer fan my favorite ended up being their lager. both the coal porter and the IPA left a lot to be desired.

Nice selection of their own beers on tap, a large space - much larger than the initial impression gives. Service was quick and friendly during both of my visits, but not a lot of craft-brew knowledge. Lunch was standard pub fare. Great views from certain tables, pricey, a standard tourist stop.

Nice place to stop for lunch and have a few beers. They have a respectable selection of their own brews and thereís a quality bottle shop next door. Decent food and nice service, but pretty commercial in atmosphere.

Decent brewpub with a few nice house brews on tap when I went, including the hefeweizen and oatmeal stout. Nachos were good. Prices are a bit steep, but this is nothing new in Vancouver.

I guess this must live off the tourist trade. I wonít bother going back here again - beer was okay, but nothing remarkable. Food was meh. There was a really smelly guy at the table next to us, which certainly didnít help.

Outdoor seating in gas town. nice view of the mountains out back. clean brewpub look. justin timberlake, U2, and santagold playing in the background. Agree with the yuppie crowd comments. Decent beers. didnít eat here. worth trying the sampler if in the neighborhood. ginger beer was neat. ipa was dissapointing.

SBC is located in the historic Gastown and named after the steam pipes that run through the building. Great view overlooking the water. The beer is brewed using steam heat and the building has many historic artifacts if you have a great bartender and tour guide extraordinaire such as Nick. More about Nick later. After spending some time at the Olympic Village we headed to SBC for lunch and a beer about noon. The female wait staff was not that welcoming so we left. Later came back and sat at the bar where we had Nick the bartender. Nick definately turned the experience into a positive one with his humour, knowledge and genuine interest in the beer and spirits. Had several beer samples as well as one of the best drinks I have had in some time; a Ceasar with excellent flavor and spice. Also, had their stout, lager, IPA, wheat, and amber. Thanks Nick!!! And great t-shirt...Iíll wear it proudly. Time with Nick at the bar was a great time. The female staff seemed to be worried about looking cute and pretty for tips rather than fulfilling their responsibilities.
