BEERFEST | New in Town x Container Brewing x Strathcona

Container Brewing | Strathcona, Vancouver

Strathcona—(December 4, 2019) Newly opened in the thick of Yeast Van's still bustling craft beer neighborhood, Container Brewing is already on its way to becoming another friendly and welcoming East Van brewery a couple weeks after its official opening.

Full of bright white container storage touches and softly wood finishes, the new brewery has a unique industrial look in its inviting 4,400-square-foot, two-level space designed by Simcic + Uhrich Architects—also responsible for the comparably constructed Brassneck, Faculty, and Strathcona breweries.

As for the beer, they've already got a varied lineup of solid beer types after more than a year of development with a decided focus on ales, IPAs, and European inspired concoctions.

After sampling a quartet of their fresh brews in both flight and "full-pour" forms, I've already developed an affinity for their interesting mix of available beers so far including:
  • Cold Box (dry-hopped lager): a smooth and easily drinkable standard.
  • Panamax (extra special bitter): a sharp and tasty version of a classic ESB.
  • All Season" (nitro dry stout): light yet dark in its crisp flavour.
  • Pour Les Mineurs Frais Grisette (fresh hop grisette): my favourite for its bold, refreshing taste.

Container is carving out its own little corner being just different enough while also definitely fitting into Vancouver's wider craft beer community.
