      A craft brewer has proposed to set up shop near Granville Island in Vancouver.

      Brewing August plans to use 1614 West 3rd Avenue into a brewery, tasting room, and retail location.

      Diamond Group Architecture Inc. filed a development application with city hall on behalf of the brewer.

      Brewery owner and operator Tate Lillies wrote an operational letter as part of the application, and stated that Brewing August will be a “welcome addition to the neighbourhood”.

      The lounge is proposed to operate seven days a week, from 9 a.m. to midnight.

      The establishment’s menu will include hot and cold food.

      Lillies wrote that the venue is suitable for enjoying product brewed on site, but will not operate like a nightclub or pub.

      Online, Brewing August describes itself as “one of the best good-vibes beer pouring in Vancouver”.

      “Beer with all the qualities of August: full sun, long days and filled with possibility,” the brewery says about its brand.
