Since its founding in 2005, Red Truck brewery has been delivering beer to market to Vancouverites from its modest headquarters in North Vancouver. The craft brewery has been successfully making keg deliveries in their iconic 1946 Dodge Power Wagon for the past decade, and will continue to do so from a new location downtown, coincidentally at the mouth of the city’s historic Brewery Creek where pioneering breweries originally drew their water a century ago.
Red Truck will be packaging its beer in bottles and bombers, cans and growlers from their shiny new East 1st Avenue digs. The centrepiece is an old school 50s-style Truck Stop Diner, featuring indoor/outdoor seating for 120 visitors, and 24 taps that include Red Truck’s Classic, Limited Edition, and Seasonal beers. The brewery also houses a retail shop and growler station. And beginning June 13, Five Alarm Funk will launch the brewery’s parking lot concert series. The Trews, Head of the Herd, and The Dudes also confirmed play to the crowd this summer.
