I love discovering new things about my city. As a born and bred Vancouverite, it’s so fun to be surprised. Did you know that a GIANT rad brewery, complete with tasting room and food service lives behind the many garages off Main Street and 1st Ave.? Clearly, I didn’t.
Turns out, Red Truck Beer has been in that spot for the past year. VERY much big rig-themed, the room was unpretentious to say the least. And they managed to make truck stop food taste pretty decent. I was a fan of their meaty reuben sandwiches on toasted rye and crispy, garlicky fries. Prices for beer were reasonable too, just $5 a pint.
It wasn’t my usual scene but I think I can get on board. For a quick tour of the place, scroll through the Soulcialite Facebook Live video.
If you’re already looking for sweet summer plans, the brewery is stepping up to host a summer concert series again, right outside their front doors! Over a 1,000 people are expected at the Truck Stop Concert Series.
