The Three Faces of Hopworks Urban Brewery
Hopworks takes its role as a patron of the earth very seriously. At the heart of its operation, this eco-brewpub maintains an unbending commitment to sustainable practices, utilizing everything from rain barrels to composting. Even the building it resides in—an industrial ski lodge crafted from reclaimed materials—stands as a testament to that commitment. It's also easily accessible via public transportation and bicycle, enabling customers to play a part in the brewpub's mission, too.
Hopworks produces a staggering 10,000 barrels of beer annually. The brewery's handcrafted organic beers—made from organic malts and locally sourced hops—keep the facility's 10 taps loaded throughout the year. The selection includes seasonal specialties and year-round creations, such as the popular Survival 7-Grain Stout, a dark concoction made with barley, wheat, oats, quinoa, amaranth, spelt, and Kamut.
With so much of its focus on beer, it might be easy to assume Hopworks isn't a place to bring children. But that couldn't be further from the truth. The brewpub encourages families to visit by keeping a play area stocked with toys and books to entertain the kids. Every month, Hopworks also hosts fun family events featuring craft activities, story time, and healthy snacks. Just like its use of sustainable practices, these events are all part of Hopworks's mission to engineer a safe future for younger generations.
