Central City Brewers & Distillers
British Columbia is booming with distilleries and breweries. From craft to larger productions, there is certainly no shortage of delicious drinks! Central City Brewers & Distillers in Vancouver is a great place to grab a pint or a cocktail!
Established in 2003, Central City Brewers & Distillers have fine-tuned the art of craft and spirits. Using the finest ingredients, the all Canadian beers and spirits are undoubtedly top-notch! The 65,000 square foot facility that Central City is now found in is its second facility. The original brewpub can be found just up the road from the new location!
The brewmaster, Gary Lohin, carefully chooses the best ingredients for his beers. The range includes the award-winning Red Racer range, Beer League, a hopped cider range, and many limited release brews!
The distillery uses three Holstein Stills with reflux columns. Stuart McKinnon, the master distiller, has been working at Central City since 2013, and has created a range of spirits including single malt Canadian whisky, handcrafted gin, and small batch vodka.
If you visit on the weekend, you can take a tour of the facility, you'll see how the beer goes from grain to glass, then you can enjoy a flight of beers in the tasting room. If you miss the tour, don’t worry, you can grab a pint at the bar all week (cocktails only on weekends), and view the distillery and brewery in action.
