DINER: New “Red Truck” Brewery In East Van To Break Ground With A Massive Bang
One of our favourite local breweries – Red Truck – is going to be dropping a Red Truck from a nice height to celebrate the ground breaking for their new brewery. Here’s a snippet from a press release that will start making the rounds at some point in the next 24 hours…
We’re running out of beer. In the beer drinking year of 2004 Red Truck began driving its’ 1946 Dodge Power Wagon through the streets of the lower mainland, delivering the freshest beer available to Vancouverites and their guests.
From Keg 1, Dave ‘da Brewa’ Varga has been painstakingly brewing delicious Red Truck lager and ale as slowly as he can, always maintaining quality over quantity. Fortunately for the Red Truck Beer Company, Dave has been doing a fantastic job. So good in fact, we have to move from our brewery in North Vancouver to new digs on East 1st Avenue – smack dab in the middle of the city in Brewery Creek.
Complete with a 50’s-style Truck Stop, Red Truck Beer Company will be packaging its fresh beer in bottles, cans and kegs from this home.
…and some renderings to wet your whistle…
You can join the Red Truck crew for their “Truck Drop” and ground breaking at 315 East 1st Avenue on Thursday, September 27th from 2:46pm to 5:46pm. Note that the “drop” will take place at 4pm sharp. Details and such can be found here. See you there!
