Spring has finally sprung and summer is fast approaching, which in the beer world means a plethora of fun summer beers and festival season! We’ve got a busy June ahead of us, so if you’re from out of town and looking to catch up on Red Collar’s newest brews, here’s where you can find us this month!
June 3 & 4 – Vancouver Craft Beer Week Festival at the PNE. We will be pouring our two newest brews, Impeachment and Alternative Facts!
June 10 – HOPoxia in Victoria. We don’t get over to the Island much, so come check out this awesome event at Phillips. Hoppy beers only!
June 16 & 17 – vALEmount Craft Beer Experience. The 1st ever beer fest in Valemount is already sold out! If you have tickets please drop by and say hi!
Stay tuned for more awesome events happening both around Kamloops and in the greater beer community! Cheers!
Summer hours have begun at Red Collar. We are now open as follows;
Tuesday to Saturday: 1pm-10pm
Hope to see you this summer!
Two new brews have joined our beer line up, and for the first time ever, they have been packaged in 4x473ml tall boy cans. The two new beer are dubbed “Impeachment” and “Alternative Facts”, the former being a soured peach Witbier and the latter a clouded zero IBU IPA. Branded in political jest, you could say we have a lot of feelings about the current administration governing our buddies to the south.
We intend to have these brews available (somewhat) consistently over the course of the summer, so if you come in and we’ve run out (SAD!), don’t dispair, we will likely have another batch ready within a week!
Cheers to summer beers!
We are kicking off the BBQ season on today, May 20th, with homemade burgers and a couple unique casks! Quantities are limited (and the burgers always go fast!) – so both food and cask beer is first come, first serve, no tickets or reservations! Stay tuned for more info and new beer releases around the same time! Doors are open at 1pm – casks and food will get going between 3pm & 4pm!
Cask #1: IPA hopped with Laurel and fermented with San Diego Super Yeast
Cask #2: IPA and Dubbel hopped with cherrywood smoked Nugget and fermented with American Ale Yeast.
This is the first of our summer Backyard BBQs – more to come from now until September! The next event will be on June 17th!
Red Collar Brewing and Western Canada Theatre Present:
Rye, Rye, Rye (& Ginger) Launch Party
We’ve bottled one of our favourite seasonals to celebrate WCT’s production of “Ring of Fire: The Music of Johnny Cash”. We are hosting a launch party in the tasting room on Saturday, February 11th from 7-9 to toast both the beer and the play it is named after.
Local musicians Abby Wale and Stuart McCallum will be putting a modern touch on the iconic classics of Johnny Cash. WCT will be raffling off tickets to the production which runs from February 23rd until March 4th.
This is a free event, but come early as space is limited.
Come join us as welcome the lovely folks from Storms Restaurant as they take over our kitchen on Tuesday, February 7th from 5-9pm.
It’s like a tap takeover… but in a kitchen!
