Gorgeous Danish ‘Brus Brewery’ Would Suit A Spot By Cambie Bridge

Restaurant Porn is a regular column of daydreams presented as a means to introduce Vancouver diners and designers to concepts, looks, and fully-formed ideas that they might draw an inkling of inspiration from. We do our best to pair the foreign rooms with local addresses so as to let everyone in on the daydream.

—————————————

(via) One of the great things about the explosion of new breweries in Vancouver has been their aesthetic diversity in their tasting room designs. While the cascade of new, locally brewed beer has been hugely appreciated, it’s been a tremendous relief to see how stylistically different they are. Brassneck, Luppolo, Strathcona, 33 Acres, Bomber, Faculty, even Field House out in Abby — each one has its own vastly different personality, which is more than can be confidently said of their restaurant brethren. This is especially surprising given how singular in purpose breweries are (making beer and selling it on site). You’d think it would hamstring their design sensibilities. But maybe the simplicity of that singularity of purpose is precisely the reason why no two brewery tasting rooms in Vancouver ever appear to share the same design DNA. What ever the case, there’s plenty of room for new ideas, which is why we landed on Brus Brewery in Copenhagen. Danes know a thing or two about design, and that clearly comes across in this renovated iron works. It’s more than just a tasting room, of course. It’s also a bar (I spy wine!), retail shop and full-service restaurant that comes complete with its own patio (which Vancouver breweries could use more of). The restaurant – Spontan – looks great, offering a delicious-sounding six course tasting menu paired with beer. It’s all oak and copper, flooded by light, clean lined and curvaceous in just the right spots — dig that double booth! We’d gladly take a version of it on False Creek near the southern terminus of the Cambie Bridge.
