CENTRAL CITY
BREW PUB

We may have started small, but we’ve always thought big. Starting as a brewpub in downtown Surrey, we saw the potential of what Canadian craft beer could be. And so from a small brewery in the Vancouver suburb, Red Racer craft beer was born. The idea was to create beer that honoured the traditions of the craft, using only the best ingredients. From there, only good things can happen.

It is this same mantra that we carried forward as we evolved into more than just a brewery and brewpub. With distilling now in our title, we approach our spiritual side with the same care and honour as we do with our beer.

To achieve this, we surround ourselves with the most passionate individuals who share our vision. This passion drives our business, guaranteeing you get the absolute best out of us. From every can we produce, to every pint we pour, you can rest assured we have your standards covered.
