Main Street Brewing Company is located on 7th and Scotia street, just off Main Street. It’s close to the residential areas and it’s a pretty awesome place to hangout after work. I came with a bunch of my coworkers to just chill after a long week.
There is a tasting room, so you can buy a few pints of beer or even try a tasting flight. You can also purchase growler sized beer too.
The building is of a 1913 Heritage building, so you can see the unique charm of this space.
If you look further on the right side of the tasting lounge, you will see all their equipment used to brew the beer.
When I was here, they had their 3 staple beers – Main Street Pilsner, Seasonal IPA, and the Brown Ale. They also had 3 casks available. It’s a good selection of beer.
They do sell food to munch on. All of them are perfect pairings with beer. Pepperoni sticks! Beef Jerky! Meat and Cheese Plate! Etc.
When you order food, you get a big empty beer bottle, a wooden spoon with a number.
BC pork liver pate board ($12) with fig jam, pickled, and bread. Mags thought it was pretty average, but not the best pate she’s had.
I ordered the Tasting Flight and asked them to choose the 4 lightest beers for me.
- Main Street Pilsner
- Seasonal IPA
- Brown Ale
- Belgian Hybrid Ale
My favourite was the Main Street Pilsner. I liked the flight because it was a nice way to try all their beers.
Overall, it was a great place to go to with good beer. We still couldn’t figure out why they had these holes in all the tables.
