Central City Brewing and Distillers


We are Canada’s Brewery of the Year, and the 2012 World Cup of Beer’s Gold & Bronze Medal winner. Our BC Brewery is focused on being the best, not the biggest.

In 2003, we started as Central City Craft Brewpub in Surrey, BC. Our craft beer grew so popular that in 2005, we launched a canning line, enabling us to sell our beers at our own Liquor Store, and beyond. Brewery sales quickly grew as our craft beers continued to win awards, and we achieved great success with the Red Racer beer brand. By 2009 we had reached full capacity at our current BC brewery – a 3,500 sq. ft. space.

Our Red Racer brand has become a cult icon among craft beer enthusiasts. Our flagship Red Racer IPA is available at 120 BC Government Liquor stores, and all the finest private Liquor Stores in the Province. It’s also available at 230 LCBO outlets in Ontario, and we have just signed an agreement with a new agent in Alberta.

Our craft beers are rated some of the highest in British Columbia, and Canada from experts on sites like BeerAdvocate and RateBeer.
