Right in the heart of East Vancouver, near its thriving port, this brewery embraces its hard working and eclectic community.
Founded by two long-time friends who wanted to make their own mark on the craft beer scene in East Vancouver, Container feels like it’s been part of the scene forever, even though it’s the newest brewery to open in the city. Founders Dan Webster and Terry Brown wanted to create a space that will bring the people of East Vancouver, and beyond, together to enjoy great beer in a comfortable environment. The two-level lounge and tasting room with large windows face the North Shore mountains; opening up on the hot summer days, this lounge is the place to be year-round.
Container Brewing focuses on classic beer styles with a modern twist where needed — the intention is to bring a highly drinkable range of beer that will have you asking for another. The beer line-up is influenced by founding head brewer Tim Juul’s background in the New England beer scene and has since been pushed further by current head brewer, David Dayco. That means you can rely on the quality of Container’s Hazy IPAs and expect some interesting variations in the brewery’s west coast styles. The beer sits alongside a great food truck partnership with Burdy, who creates a number of wonderful handheld sandwiches amongst other offerings.
Its location, just to the west of Clark Drive, extends the reach of the “Yeast Van” breweries (Powell, Callister, Andina, Storm, and Parallel 49) towards Strathcona Beer Co., about four blocks closer to downtown.
