Welcome to Terminal City Brewing
Health Update – May 25th
We are currently open for business, with some restrictions. Here at TCB, sanitation has always been part of our routine; keeping things clean is a large part of how we keep our products tasting great. We are operating with an enhanced sanitation plan including:
- Thoroughly sanitizing all bottling stations between every use
- Limiting bottling appointments to ensure we can maintain the required 2m separation between all customers
- Bottling appointments limited to people who live together – NO GROUPS
For our distancing methods to be effective, you MUST show up on time for your bottling appointments and you MUST show up with only household members. Do not bring a friend, do not bring family members whom you do not live with. Do not bring anybody with you if you have the ability to bottle alone. Showing up early is just as bad as showing up late! If you cannot make your appointment time, please give us a call and we will see if we are able to accommodate you.
To keep everyone safe, please stay home if you are not feeling well. Anyone visibly coughing will be asked to leave the premises for the safety of our staff and customers. If you are unsure if you are sick, check your temperature – stay home if you have fever.
Come discover the Brew On Premise concept at Terminal City Brewing. We are Vancouver’s first and finest U-Brew facility.
What is “U-Brew” anyhow?
No, it’s not a bunch of yeasty bottles exploding in your uncle’s closet! Our production equipment is similar to any other small craft brewery in town and our brewing process is just the same. Our all grain brewing system and ferment-on-premises licensing lets us do the hard part for you – we take care of the mashing, boiling, filtering and carbonating. We make the wort, then it goes in to a fermenter just for you. Your choice of yeast is all it takes to kick it off.
Once fermentation is complete (about 2 weeks for ales, 4 weeks for lagers/pilsners) you’ll make a bottling appointment with us. We have everything you need right here:
- New glass or plastic bottles are available for purchase
- We have 355mL cans for purchase to use in our canning machine
- We have two automatic bottle sanitizing machines available if you are reusing bottles
- Bottle caps are always free when you’re bottling with us
- Our draft bottling table lets you fill up just about anything; growlers, bottles, etc
- We can help you fill your kegs if you have a home draft system
Bottling takes about an hour for most folks and it’s FUN! You will have the opportunity to sample your beer while you bottle.
What’s in it for me?
Enjoy quality beer but don’t like what it does to your wallet? We’ve got you covered. Our batches are 48L and range from $135-170. A standard can is 355mL; you can do the math! You can find our full beer list here
We make great quality craft beer from real grain just like your favourite local microbrewery. Since we’re making it just for you, we can adjust the recipe to fit your personal taste. Have a particular hop you love? We probably have it in stock. Prefer something light and smooth? Not a problem. From the lightest lager to the darkest stout, we have you covered.
Is the beer any good?
We are Vancouver’s first full-service “Brew On Premise”. We opened our doors on May 10, 1993 and have since provided the best products and services available in the industry. We know our business!
