Nathan Marculis and his wife, Wafa Veljee, owners of Irrational Brewing Company, celebrate the start of the redevelopment of Edmonton's old Street Railway Substation No. 600 on June 30, 2020.

The old Street Railway Substation No. 600 on 124 Street is being transformed into one of Edmonton’s newest microbreweries.

The Art Deco-style building, which was built in 1938, caught the attention of Nathan Marculis and his wife, Wafa Veljee, earlier this year as the ideal location to start their business, Irrational Brewing Company. Last week the two signed a lease with owner Beljan Development with the plan to be up and running by next year.

On Tuesday during an event celebrating the start of the redevelopment, Marculis, who will be the head brewer, said he and Veljee are excited to see the project moving forward.

“We decided that Edmonton has such a great growing craft beer scene that we should hop on it and that’s what got us here today,” he said. “(We) started about a year and a half ago to try and open up a brewery and now we have this beautiful location.”
