THE SETTLEMENT BUILDING
In the heart of Railtown, The Settlement Building is a perfect representation of the neighborhood as a whole. The five tenants of the space each display a creative and collaborative approach to their craft while focusing on the promotion of Vancouver's identity and West Coast lifestyle.
Postmark Brewing is a microbrewery that serves an extensive list of beers brewed in small batches right in the building. Patrons can glimpse a behind-the-scenes view of the brewery's inner workings from the growler fill station. Large, chrome vats of beer fill the double height space and contrast nicely with the exposed timber beams supporting the building's structure. Growler sales are the obvious retail choice but Postmark also offers a variety of apparel with their west coast inspired branding. We particularly like the topo lines on select growlers.
The Vancouver Urban Winery (VUW) is the second major tenant in The Settlement Building. The VUW operates as a boutique winery, and supplies wine for The Settlement Building and for several other establishments around the city. The VUW also has a tasting room that serves several different wines from across British Columbia. The tasting room hosts tasting events throughout the year that are open to the public, but often require tickets to be purchased in advance.
The third major tenant is The Belgard Kitchen. This popular restaurant serves classic dishes such as meatballs or short ribs, prepared with fresh local ingredients in creative ways that make them stand out. The drink menu features Postmark beers and wine from VUW, which is about as local as you can get!
