Steel Toad Brewpub and Dining Hall Now Open
Southeast False Creek’s Opsal Steel Building Re-born As Steel Toad Brewpub
My post is a little late out of the gate here, but the Steel Toad Brewpub and Dining Hall is now open in the re-built and refurbished Opsal Steel Building. They have had a few glitches including not being able to serve their in-house beers on opening night and a power outage just today, but overall it appears to have been a successful launch.
What is a steel toad? It isn’t just a cute name. Urban Dictionary defines a Steel Toad as:
a member of a crew at a steel plant, primarily those who maintain and operate the blast furnace and who cast the metal during production of steel
As part of the re-development of the site that now includes the Opsal condominium building the old Opsal Steel building has been re-erected, undergoing a painstaking conservation effort. Over the past 5 years, the derelict building was disassembled, and the original construction materials were transported off site to be restored. The salvaged lumber and steel was married with modern construction materials and techniques to restore this iconic Vancouver building.
The Steel Toad Brewpub and Dining Hall, adding to Tap and Barrel and Craft Beer Market, has to cement Southeast False Creek as thee neighbourhood to enjoy a craft beer with your meal. On the main floor at Steel Toad you can enjoy a carefully selected group of craft beers and a menu of updated takes on brewpub favourites. They even have a forno oven and that produces their signature thin crust pizzas. A late night menu is available and there will be live music nightly.
Upstairs is the dining room with a higher-end menu and a more sedate atmosphere.
WHERE: 97 East 2nd Ave, Vancouver, BC
WHAT: Brunch on Saturday and Sunday, Lunch and Dinner 7 days a week, PLUS live music nightly
