Hearthstone Brewing has been brewing since late 2014 in North Vancouver and has been selling kegs and now cans for some time in Metro Vancouver. Check out my old post on the brewery tour I did (Click Here).
One thing that has been in the works for a long time is a tasting lounge. Sadly things have been going very slowly to everyone’s dismay. If you have worked in the construction industry you will understand construction delays and being at the mercy of other people. When I stopped in the other day I was able to take a look into the tasting room and can share the progress to this point.
Photo one shows where the bar will be located. The beams above will actually carry the pipes that will bring the beer from serving tanks in the brewery to the taps in the tasting room. Photo two displays the lounge space in the foreground with the retail area being at the far end. Photo three shows the pony wall divider between the lounge and the kitchen area where you will find the two pizza ovens on the left side of the photo. This place has a food primary license. Photo 4 and 5 show where the patio will be located!
Now they do not know when the lounge will open as they have been told 3 months for almost 12 months but it is coming. Expect it to open in early 2016.
