The GOODS from Steel & Oak
New Westminster, BC | On Saturday, November 18th from 6:30-11:00 pm, record labels, collectors, and vinyl lovers from across Metro Vancouver will gather in New Westminster for an evening of music, beer, community and of course crate digging.
First launched by Steel & Oak Brewing Co. and the Arts Council of New West in the fall of 2016, the third edition of Analog will take place in the River Market food hall at 810 Quayside Drive from 6:30-11:00 pm. Select River Market food hall vendors will be open for the evening with vinyl sales from 6:30 pm onwards.
“Our last event was a huge success and we’ve managed to build a community of vinyl enthusiasts eager to support local labels, shops and collectors.” says Steel & Oak co-owner Jorden Foss. “The vibe in the spring was electric and people loved spending an afternoon browsing for records, while also enjoying some amazing music, good food and beer. They’re definitely going to like what we’re doing with the after dark concept.”
Adding to the evening of vinyl shopping and sipping craft beer, the Arts Council of New West is collaborating with local electronic music outfit Social Medium to program a lineup of DJs playing a range of hip-hop and electro through to house and techno with live video mixing and visuals from local artist and DJ Mutes Ito.
In addition to popular returning vendors Scrape Records, Music Madhouse & Northern Electric are a handful of collectors, new recruits Highlife Records, and internationally recognized electronic music labels Hybridity Music, Pacific Rhythm and Mood Hut.
“We’re super excited for the event! It’s fun working together with our friends at Steel & Oak and Social Medium to bring an innovative event like Analog built around the arts that is a bit out of the ordinary from what people might expect of New West.” says Stephen O’Shea of the Arts Council. “We’re always looking for ways to surprise people and do something creative that they might not have seen before.”
New for this event is a limited edition S&O beer called High Fidelity, brewed especially for the event. “We wanted to have some fun with the after dark concept and think people are going to really dig what we’ve put together.”

ABOUT STEEL & OAK BREWING CO.
“Steel & Oak Brewing Co. embraces the modernness of today while remaining dedicated to the craftsmanship of years long past. Steel and oak are materials of strength and durability. They house, protect and nurture what we stand for most – exceptional tasting craft beer.
Opening in 2014, Steel & Oak calls New Westminster home. Nicknamed ‘The Royal City’, New West was the location of the lower mainland’s first brewery over 155 years ago. Our brewery and Tap Room are located along the Fraser River at the end of the Westminster Quay Boardwalk, meaning that you can enjoy some fresh air as you walk from New West Skytrain Station to our Tap Room door.
Our obsession with beer is almost rivalled by our passion for vinyl. We listen to music the old-fashioned way, relishing the pauses and silence as a record is flipped.
On tap, you’ll find German inspired classics and new North American creations, always unpasteurized, unfiltered, and made with the finest ingredients. Available all year long are our Royal City Ale, Red Pilsner, Dark Lager and Roselle Wheat Ale. Popular seasonal hits include our Smoked Hefeweizen, Satsuma Dry Hopped Lager, Windrose Porter and Roggen Weizen.
If you can’t make it to New West, though we recommend that you do, you can find our beers throughout BC and into Alberta.”
