Red Truck Brewery will be hosting a groundbreaking ceremony of epic proportions tomorrow as they begin work on their new brewery. You have probably spotted the iconic red delivery truck as they deliver craft beer to dozens of purveyors around town. However, having outgrown their current location in North Vancouver, the groundbreaking ceremony in East Vancouver will involve hoisting then dropping a red truck from a crane.
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 Ave, smack dab in the middle of the city in Brewery Creek.
When it’s complete, the new brewery will also have a 50′s style truck stop diner.
The truck drop event will take place from 2:46pm to 5:46pm on Thursday, September 27, 2012 at 315 East 1st in Vancouver with the truck drop at 4:00pm. There will be live music, food, and of course some beer. You can RSVP for the event online and if you attend, tag your Tweets, Viddy videos, and photos on Instagram with #TruckDrop @RedTruckBeer to enter their social media contest.
