Calling all artists! Red Collar Brewing is currently seeking submissions for a spring art show. The theme is “beer” (open to interpretation). All 2-D mediums accepted (painting, drawing, photography, collage, printmaking). The preferred size is 16 x 20 inches, but we are open to a few pieces which go beyond these dimensions. E-mail a maximum of 3 jpegs to email@example.com, along with your name and contact information. Deadline is April 13th. This is a juried group show, so we will contact those who are selected. We’re looking forward to seeing your work!
Red Collar and the Kamloops Art Gallery are pleased present Drink & Draw, an evening of art and beer on Wednesday, March 11th. All you need to bring is a creative spirit as the suds and supplies are all on site. Whether you want to participate in a group art piece or just get into some doodling, Drink & Draw is the place to be. A reminder that minors are welcome at Red Collar as long as they are accompanied by a guardian. 6PM-8PM
The Brewspeak collective will be meeting at Red Collar tonight at 6PM. Please RSVP to jp(at)red collar ca if you plan to attend.
*Note: The brewery remains closed to the general public.
Don’t forget to join us for Trivia Tuesday next week! There are no reservations, so show up early to ensure you get a table.
Here at Red Collar we are focused, sometimes obsessively, with the pursuit of brewing great beer. Fortunately for us, we are surrounded by talented artists who are willing to help us make up for our decorative deficiencies. Local print maker Nona Tickner submitted this beautiful linocut print of her black dog, Charlie, and Red Collar’s designer Frank Luca did the rest.
If you are as passionate about art as we are of beer we would love to meet you. We are open to all mediums and are looking for pieces that can be used in anything from labels to tasting room installations.
For inquiries about submissions, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
If you like to drink and are partial to art, join us on Wednesday, February 18th as the Kamloops Art Gallery hosts Drink & Draw. The art supplies are provided, there is no cost to participate and minors are welcome (so long as they are accompanied by a guardian). We’ll see you from 6-8PM!
We are about to say goodbye to our Christmas Bock until next winter. To pay one last homage to this strong lager we are offering pints at $5 and jugs at $12. Come try this beer before it goes into hibernation!

Wednesday, January 21st marks the beginning of two new chapters in the Red Collar story. Brewspeak will be a monthly gathering of Kamloops homebrewers and beer enthusiasts facilitated by Red Collar brewmaster David Beardsell. The aim is to have a collaborative forum on brewing techniques, beer styles and equipment. Folk who are looking to get into the homebrewing hobby are also more than welcome to join. The event runs from 6-8PM
That same evening we will be hosting Drink & Draw in collaboration with the Kamloops Art Gallery. All that you need to bring is a creative spirit and a thirst needing to be quenched by a beer. Don’t forget that Drink & Draw will still be happening on the last Monday of the month over at Zack’s Coffees Teas and Gifts.
