Red Truck Ale

Red Truck is available at a few places around Vancouver including the Cruiser-friendly DIX Pub near BC Place

The first time I had Red Truck was on Rod's Birthday Ride in 2005 - coincidently that was also the day I got my Manhattan AND the day I stumbled across a lot of the cruiser 'scene'. Picture yourself riding along on your brand new bike and ending up at the pub... What will you have? Well, they've got this 'Red Truck' stuff you haven't heard of, how about that? Let's just get one thing out in the open - I'm not a huge lager fan. Yeah, it's beer, you can drink it and some lagers are actually ok but it's just not my thing. So it shouldn't come as any surprise that Red Truck Ale is my preferred choice from the Red Truck lineup.

Red Truck Ale

Red Truck describes their ale as aluscious, copper-hued ale is combines the drinkability of a lager with the rich smoothness of an amber ale. All you serious hopheads out there will be interested to know that it's crystal malt that gives Red Truck its rich colour and depth of flavour, while Pacific Fuggles and Goldings hops provide the wonderfully complex nose and finish. For the rest of us, let's just say that it's made with nothing but pure, good stuff, delivered fresh from our brewery to your favourite watering hole. That's honestly pretty on the money - it's smooth and flavorful. No skunky lager taste here! Check it out one day - pop in to Dix and grab a glass. They're usually cool if you want to park your bike inside provided they're not too crazy busy (no game nights) and they've even got a nice cruiser on display. Food isn't bad either.
