Red Truck Beer Company launched in North Vancouver in 2005. Owner Mark James named this company Red Truck Beer after his beloved ’46 dodge, ‘Old Weird Harold’. The original North Vancouver brewery was a keg-only facility, with a mere 2 employees. Over time, more tanks and 4 staff members were added, but we eventually needed further room to expand. In Sept 2012, we broke ground on the First Avenue site with a Truck Drop Event, attended by 500 local loyal customers and friends of Red Truck.
The last brew in North Vancouver was brewed July 1st, 2014, and in August 2014 we moved into our new home at 295 East 1st Ave.
Despite this growth and the move to our new building, we are still very much a craft brewery. While the term ‘craft’ is notoriously hard to define, we adhere to all grain and four all natural ingredients, no preservatives and no pasteurization. We have fewer but bigger tanks, giving us consistent high-quality beer and the right size brew house for scale and flexibility.
Citra Down and Buckle Up! This dry hopped blonde ale pours the colour of summer straw. Pine and citrus aromas lead into a balanced and juicy tangerine, lemon and Chinese pear flavour. Aromatic Malts and Oats provide a balanced sweetness, clean finish, and allow hop character to shine.
Superior Pilsner Malt combined with Torrified Wheat and Golden Oats. Heavily dry hopped with Citra and Vic Secret.
This limited release ale brings together the sweet-tart flavour of Blackberry and the mellow woody finish of Kentucky bourbon. An extremely refreshing and well balanced seasonal beer.
Brewed with locally sourced Fraser Valley blackberries, Kentucky bourbon and Pekko hops.
