They say that good things come to those who wait, and in the case of Russell Brewing Company, the good thing, opening their tasting room, only took 27 years. But it was definitely worth the wait!
One of the original 10 craft breweries in Metro Vancouver, Russell Brewing Company has been creating some of the region’s best craft brews since 1995. With small batches, loads of expertise, and barrels of care, every craft brew is made with 100% natural ingredients, no preservatives and un-pasteurized to ensure only the best makes it to customers. Essentially the beer that ends up in your glass tastes exactly how the brewmaster intended it to.
Bright and spacious, the new tasting room has an impressive lineup of Russell Beers available in classic flights, table flights (12 samples to share with the table), glasses and growlers, including favourites like Angry Scotch Ale, Blueberry Cherry Lime Berliner and a selection of Milkshake IPAs, and be sure to try the unique and refreshing Radler Slushie. For the non-drinkers, they have a selection of non-alcoholic choices like Tality Kombucha, Boylan sodas and Cabana lemonades.
And let’s not forget about the food. With a focus on Mexican, the menu was designed by local restaurateurs, White Rock’s Wooden Spoon and Vancouver’s Pawn Shop and includes tacos, an amazing nacho platter and guac & chips. And early reviews suggest that the food is “freaking delish”!
Located at their head office in Surrey’s Newton neighbourhood, the tasting room is open daily from 11 am to 8 pm, and 10 pm on Friday and Saturday nights. Be sure to check them out and raise a glass to these craft beer pioneers!
