Summatime is officially in full swing and after a rough couple of rainy months, the music festival season is upon us finally.
Okay, but I know what you're thinking; you already hit up the screaming tweens at FVDED and you know you'll never get in to Shambhala, and maybe you're looking for something a bit more soulful to end summer on a high note...
Well guys, I've got just the festival for you to attend this summer that's free from the typical festival scene you might have grown tired of.
*Cue Red Truck Beer*
Red Truck Beer's annual Truck Stop Concert Series is back for its third year. This is the perfect excuse to come out and enjoy some craft beer and music with all your friends.
With 2 of 3 sold out shows already over, there is only one last chance to experience the best outdoor concert in the city located at its unique brewery location just at the base of Main St. at 295 E 1st Ave.
From soul music to blues and folk, here is the official line-up for August’s Truck Stop Series:
Lee Fields & The Expressions - 8:15 PM
Harpoonist And The Axe Murderer - 7:30 PM
The Jay Vons - 6:45 PM
Vince Vaccaro - 6:00 PM
The Real Ponchos - 5:15 PM
Year Of The Wolf - 4:30 PM
Unlike the years before, this year's concert series is going to be bigger and better, with sick headliners and local bands who have won their way onto the Truck Stop stage will be performing. There's even going to be a massive BBQ, food trucks, and beer trucks. Yes, you heard me right. BEER TRUCKS!
Red Truck Beer is home to Vancity's award-winning, hand-crafted beers slowly brewed to perfection. Don't even try and order any Coors or Bud Light here, Red Truck Beer is for the savvy beer drinker who knows their shit.
They even come out with seasonal releases that you can get seriously excited about. There is no beer that's going to be better than this summer's crisp and citrusy Red Truck Golden Ale to go or a limited lineup of beers only available at the brewery like the new Tropic Thunder Pale Ale.
And forget trying to gouge out $300 from your wallet just to go to a music festival for a day. The Truck Stop Concert tickets are only $35 for a single day pass.
You can even get drinks with your tickets! If you head on over to their brewery, this year they'll be offering $100 6-packs that come with 4 tickets to a show of your choice and $35 pints that come with 1 ticket to a show of your choice. A dollar of each concert ticket will also go towards funding a community project, so it's a pretty solid win-win situation. Or pre-buy your beer tokens here.
So to my fellow beer connoisseurs, music lovers, and food truck chasers, it's time to turn up with Red Truck!
