Central City Brewing
What began in 2003 as a craft brewery has bloomed into the success story behind the Red Racer line of beers popular in British Columbia’s liquor stores and bars. Currently available in almost all BCL and private beer stores in BC, Red Racer has recently begun selling in select LCBO stores in Ontario and has plans to ship to Alberta as well. If you’re not familiar you’ll want to try the IPA, Pale, and Pilsner beers available. While in Surrey, come by for brewery tour (Sat/Sun 1pm, 2pm, 5pm) and try some of the newest flavours, including the recently launched Maple Bacon Breakfast Ale!
Rivers Bend Winery
Located on over 30 acres of riverside farmland, the Rivers Bend Winery is Surrey’s only winery. Family owned and operated since 2005, the owner still lives on site and can be often spotted in the field with the winery’s mascot – a horse named Black. The winery features a selection of award winning reds, whites, and speciality wines.
