Aquatherm Advantages

  • The highly engineered Aquatherm pipe provided material savings compared to copper piping
  • Aquatherm pipe is nontoxic and corrosion-resistant, keeping the materials that flow through the pipe system clean and unaltered
  • The inherent R-value of Aquatherm pipe eliminated the need for insulation on MSB’s hot and cold water pipe

The Challenge

Main Street Brewery needed a piping system that could reliably transport the precious, filtered water and expensive glycol without leaks while also allowing for easy expansion.

The Solution

MSB owners selected Aquatherm pipe for their systems and it ended up providing labor savings of at least 30%.

A Piece of History Turned into a Social Hub

If you take a walk down the historic Brewery Creek in Vancouver, BC, you’ll find a unique artistic community with a rustic building that formerly housed Doering & Marstrand Brewing Co. and then the Vancouver Brewery in the early 1900s. The now rustic building was even used as an auto garage. The current inhabitants you ask? Main Street Brewery (MSB).

The MSB owners wanted to preserve the vintage feel of the historic building and turn it into a social hub once more. Main Street Brewery completed refurbishing its historic building in May 2014. Located in Vancouver’s Brewing District, MSB will serve its popular Pilsner, three year-round beers, and a monthly special on cask and draft.

In 2010, Main Street Brewery was founded without an official address because owners couldn’t find just the right location. They had Russell Brewing produce their brews in the meantime.

Now they have a place to call home, and brewer Jack Bensley and owner Nigel Pike have the experience to make it shine. Bensley is the former head brewer for Russell Brewing Co. and Pike owns and operates local restaurants.
