Vancouver, WA - Hopworks Urban Brewery announces plans to open a new 6,000 square foot brewery and restaurant in east Vancouver, Washington. With construction currently underway, the Vancouver brewpub will be located at 17707 SE Mill Plain Boulevard, and is scheduled to open this Fall. The Vancouver site marks the third Hopworks location and second brewery site.
“The beautiful city of Vancouver has a great sense of community, it’s packed with families & 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.”
Known throughout the brewing industry as leaders in sustainable brewing practices, the new site embodies Hopworks’ commitment to keep as low an environmental footprint as possible. Plans for the brewery include a 7 bbl brewhouse and an initial goal of brewing 1,000 barrels of beer in the first operating year. The brewpub will serve exclusive beers containing organic barley malted in Vancouver, and a combination of local, organic, and Salmon-Safe hops from Washington and Oregon.
The restaurant - which will seat more than 300 people and includes an outdoor beer garden - will offer up pub-centric favorites made with local and thoughtfully sourced ingredients. The brewpub is a Salmon-Safe Certified development and contains a 10Kw solar array, native landscaping, and energy and water efficient design. At the intersection of two connecting bike paths, the building also features ample bike parking in true Hopworks fashion.
Leading the construction is PacTrust Pacific Realty Associates, known in the region for the transformation of Washington High School. Interior design and construction is handled by Siteworks, the team responsible for the EcoFLATS building where Hopworks BikeBar is located in addition to expansion and retrofitting of Hopworks Urban Brewery in SE Portland.
