Elmira’s Retro Style Finds a Fitting Home at Steam Whistle Brewing

Northstar Refrigerator Featured in the Prominent Toronto Brewery

Accentuating their retro appeal, Steam Whistle Brewing recently selected an Elmira Northstar fridge to feature in the popular Toronto, Canada brewery. With a name inspired by an icon of the 1950s working class, Steam Whistle has an affinity for retro style, from their brewery location to their delivery trucks.  Elmira Stove Works has been manufacturing vintage-styled appliances in Canada since 1975 and the Elmira Northstar refrigerator was a fitting choice to store Steam Whistle Brewing’s pilsner.

Steam Whistle has always used antique fridges in its brewery, hoping to complete their retro brewery with a vintage refrigerator. However, the compressor systems in antique fridges were not up to date and the fridges were using far too much energy for eco-minded Steam Whistle Brewing. For this reason, Steam Whistle chose the Elmira Northstar.

“The partnership with Elmira Stove Works has been ideal, as Elmira’s Northstar combines the retro imagery we were looking for with better quality and convenience,” commented Greg Taylor, co-owner of Steam Whistle Brewing. “Both companies share a commitment to quality construction and retro appeal, understanding that consumers have an appreciation of hard work and simple pleasures.”

Elmira’s Northstar appliance line offers 1950s inspired appliances, including ranges, microwaves and refrigerators. Available in nine colors as well as a custom color option, the Elmira Northstar refrigerator has been acclaimed by many prominent kitchen designers and cooks as the ultimate in retro kitchen style. With chrome trim, bright colors and smooth lines, the Northstar line instantly creates a retro transformation, offering a quick and easy remodeling option.

Steam Whistle Brewing also chose to custom color match the Elmira Northstar with the celebrated Steam Whistle green. Elmira Stove Works’ custom coloring process produced a “perfect” fridge, with the retro design, modern technology and the exact green hue.

“We are thrilled to have partnered with Steam Whistle Brewery on this unique project,” said Brian Hendrick, vice president of Elmira Stove Works.  “The Northstar collection instantly creates an atmosphere of fun and relaxation, and we think it is a great fit with Steam Whistle’s overall approach to business.”
