SURREY â€” This is a big week for Central City Brewers + Distillers.
The Surrey-based brewerâ€™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 Fridayâ€™s grand opening (July 24) will officially reveal the eateryâ€™s build-your-own-burgers and 40 draught taps.
The restaurant features a â€œmodern 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.â€
Earlier this week, Earls Kitchen + Bar announced Central City Brewing has taken over brewing the restaurantsâ€™â€‹ 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. â€œIn the continuation of its mythical storyline following the launch of Detective Saison, Kolsch is Central Cityâ€™s self-elected mayor and scion of a powerful family,â€ the brewery stated. â€œHe plans on bringing change to the underground world of corruption but his secrets could bring a new lawlessness to town.â€
More characters in the series will be revealed as the â€œgritty narrativeâ€ continues.
