BUSINESS: Big week for Central City on brewing, restaurant fronts (photos)

SURREY — This is a big week for Central City Brewers + Distillers.


The Surrey-based brewer’s latest venture is a 200-seat restaurant in Vancouver called Red Racer Restaurant, located at 871 Beatty Street in the former Dix BBQ & Brewery space.

This Friday’s grand opening (July 24) will officially reveal the eatery’s build-your-own-burgers and 40 draught taps. 


The restaurant features a “modern Victorian steampunk motif with overstuffed leather and upholstered furniture, industrial lighting and design elements, including timeless leather barstools, natural hardwood, and oversized handmade wood tables made from B.C. willow trees.”


Earlier this week, Earls Kitchen + Bar announced Central City Brewing has taken over brewing the restaurants’​ popular Rhino house beer in B.C., Alberta, Manitoba and Saskatchewan.


Meanwhile, Central City also recently launched Mayor Kolsch, the latest offering in its series of character-based beers. “In the continuation of its mythical storyline following the launch of Detective Saison, Kolsch is Central City’s self-elected mayor and scion of a powerful family,” the brewery stated. “He plans on bringing change to the underground world of corruption but his secrets could bring a new lawlessness to town.”


More characters in the series will be revealed as the “gritty narrative” continues.
