A salvaged junk pub tour! Mission Springs Brewing Company
There’s an amazing junk and antiques filled pub and restaurant I love to frequent for a good meal when I’m in the area. And you’ll soon see why.
Location of Mission Springs Brewing Company
Welcome to Mission Springs Brewing Company, located in Mission, British Columbia, Canada, approximately 1 hour east of Vancouver, BC.
(7160 Oliver Street – 604 814-2337)
Ready for a junk and salvage-infused tour you’ll never forget? Come on in!
Take the salvaged junk pub tour!
The main doors greet you right off the spot with custom fabricated metal door pulls. Aren’t they gorgeous?
Once you walk inside, reclaimed wood clad ceiling and walls decorated to the hilt with vintage steerling wheels get your vintage loving attention!
Even the heating radiator is a vintage beauty!
Once inside the family friendly pub/restaurant, a toilet lid propped open is waiting to ‘seat you’. Gotta love a great pun!
What a beautiful way to enter a building!
That giant gas tank turned gum ball machine is really something, huh?
Inside the restaurant / pub
And the Bam! Welcome! Isn’t it cool?
This fabulous bar, museum and restaurant is owned by Brock Rodgers and Ken Brookes. The collection is from both their own stock as well as gifted to them over the years. And there’s no signs of it stopping anytime soon!
Everywhere you turn, there’s something special. I don’t know what this wheel with numbers is, but it’s gorgeous so who cares!
The pub was built in 1986 which later became a full blown brewery and child friendly restaurant. The 1949 Chevy 3/4 Ton that is suspended from the ceiling had to be put in before the roof went on during construction.
The pub’s own maintenance man and the owner himself hangs all the antiques, ensuring everything is thoroughly secured to the wall in the event of an earthquake or potential theft.
I’ve touched a few items myself and that’s no lie. 🙂 It’s not coming down!
I already know your eyes had you drooling over those antique tractor seats! But did you catch the telephone pole? Cool, huh?
Even the seating in this junk infused pub is exciting! This wall mural with a Railway Crossing sign among other standard street signs offers a great wall art sign vibe.
But look down onto each table and you are greeted with quite a visual treat! This one shares an authentic Explosives table top sign.
Every table is SO cool and different!
But so is the pipe lighting in this booth.
Owner Ken made all the tables himself. Each one is resin poured, filled with some kind of interesting artifact. This one is embedded with bullets, and is amazing in person! One table is themed with antique money the patrons have attempted to remove several times.
Am I the only one that wants to collect propellors now?! They look so great grouped onto this post beam!
Now that’s one salvaged junk pub tour…
Peeks of the amazing copper ceiling through this giant wagon wheel topped with a propellor made into a ceiling fan covers this section. The ceiling also changes tones depending where you sit. It’s wild!
This front counter made with corrugated metal is industrial perfection. And I’ll take that metal clad ceiling with wooden beams too please.
Love hubcaps? Here’s what you can do with your own collection! Don’t they look amazing hung up against rustic wood as wall art?
And the seat upholstery on the booths is perfectly themed with license plates.
Each piece is special. Loving these large overhead vintage light shades. Everything works!
Old truck grills line this area of the bar.
Bolts of all shapes and sizes climb this rustic beam wall. And more. So much more.
Are you a fan of beer machine levers? Take your pick along this fun group lining a beam!
More into a collection of machine gauges? There’s that too! Complete with dangling wires.
Is it any wonder that it’s hard to sit still while eating here?
Loving the shiplap wood the booths are made out of. It’s fun to study every single square inch, because the more you see, the more you see!
Even the restroom doors are decorated. Loving the machine parts vibe decorating the men’s washroom door.
Inside the ladies, you’ll be greeted with grill mirrors and gorgeous chandeliers. The walls have a really cool texture that marries salvaged and glamour well.
Need a wrench or 6,000? Take your pick! Love how they act as a tool window valance!
Your thing more farm and garden antique tools? This collection hung on a special wall treatment all their own in a herringbone pattern frames this collection out beautifully!
This is what you see when you sit in one of the booths. This is a view of the brewing room upstairs and down below, more seating.
One more for the road… if you don’t know where to put something, it gets epoxied into wall art as-is. CRAZY COOL!
If you head out to Mission Springs, make sure you mention you saw them here!
Thanks Mission Springs! You not only fuel my stomache, you’re food to my eyes too!
