Attention artists — we are extending the submissions deadline for the upcoming show at Red Collar. Art can be themed around beer and/or dogs. Also, an emphasis on craft beer is appreciated. Deadline for work is now May 11th. E-mail jpegs to firstname.lastname@example.org
Red Collar will be exhibiting the selected works in the tasting room during late May and early June. Craft beer, like any craft, is rooted in art, and we hope to foster mediums other than fermented ones here at the brewery.
We survived our first ever beer festival! A huge thank you to Fest of Ales for hosting a wonderful event, not to mention everyone who stopped by the Red Collar booth. A special shout out to Cannery Brewing Co for hosting a deadly brewers social and to all the breweries who showed us some love and made us newbies feel at home!
Red Collar Brewing is proud to announce the return of the renown BC beer buff Joe Wiebe, AKA the Thirsty Writer. Joe is launching a second edition of his book, Craft Beer Revolution: The Insider’s Guide to B.C. Breweries, which is updated with profiles of the 40 new breweries that have come to life in BC since the first edition was published in 2013.
Joe will be speaking at Red Collar on Saturday, April 18th at 7:00PM about his book and the state of the craft beer revolution. Admission to the event is free and Red Collar will have a new, revolutionary beer on tap to serve. Autographed copies of Craft Beer Revolution will be available for $20.
Come raise a pint with us on the 18th to the craft beer revolution!

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
