Inside Mount Pleasant’s New 33 Acres Brewing Company

IMG_8345

by Chuck Hallett | The much anticipated 33 Acres is now open for business at 15 West Eighth Ave (just off Main). Their new tasting room is an unusual touch of elegant Swedish cafe in the otherwise burly man-cave-esque brewery scene. This pristine aesthetic isn’t just skin deep –it penetrates all the way to the brewery floor, which sports an immaculate white production floor showcasing a sparkling brewing line that would not look out of place in a utopian science fiction fantasy…uh…about beer (see my preview here).

Back in the tasting room, visitors can sample the elegant sessional beers on tap while contemplating the vast array of succulent plants, or perhaps just watching the world stroll by via a seat at the large picture windows. More often than not, those strollers-by end up inside as well.

Stylish, high quality merchandise is also up for grabs, but quality comes at a price. Those slick, desire-inspiring porcelain growlers? $75 a pop. Okay, I’ll admit it, I bought one, and it was worth it! On tap you’ll find Life, a smooth, flavourful California Common style beer somewhere between lagers and ales; Ocean, a Cascadian Pale Ale in every sense (think floral hops over a rich malt body with a hint of caramel); and a brand new witbier aptly named 33 Acres of Sunshine.

Check them out on Twitter, Facebook, and in person Monday to Thursday from 12pm to 9pm, Friday and Saturday from 11am to 11pm, and on Sunday from 11am to 5pm.
