Red Truck and STOMP team up to “STOMP Out Hunger” this December
Ticket discounts for donations and $1 from each seasonal pint to the Food Bank
This holiday season, Red Truck Beer and STOMP are teaming up to support the Greater Vancouver Food Bank with their STOMP Out Hunger campaign to raise money and gather donations to support the important work done year round by the Food Bank.

The promotion works like this: everyone who drops off a cash or non-perishable food donation at the Red Truck Brewery before January 13th will receive a coupon good for $5 off a ticket to see the touring production of STOMP during its January 13th-15th run at Queen Elizabeth Theatre. In addition, Red Truck Beer will donate $1 from each pint of its seasonal beers sold in the Truck Stop during the month of December to the Vancouver Food Bank.

Great beer, a great show, and a great cause all come together in one seasonal campaign.

The Red Truck Beer Brewery and Truck Stop are located at 295 E. 1st Avenue and are open 7 days a week for donations and delicious beer. For more information on Red Truck, visit For more information about STOMP, visit


Spinnakers Brews News 

Happy Holidays from the Hadfields and all of the Spinnakers family! 
The downstairs bar has been cleared to OPEN! Join us on Friday Dec. 2nd for the soft-opening of the bar, beer and charcuterie will be available from 5pm- midnight! The bar will maintain regular hours of 11am-12pm. See you there! 

On the afternoon of Wednesday November 23rd, during a busy lunch hour, Spinnakers Brewpub suffered a fire in the upstairs taproom. Staff were calm and assertive as they escorted patrons from the building and thankfully, no one was harmed. Victoria fire fighters and police arrived on scene quickly and acted fast to contain the flames.
First and foremost, we are thankful that there were no injuries to patrons, staff or emergency crew. Unfortunately, parts of this iconic Heritage building and much of the interior suffered extensive damage from fire, smoke and water. The restaurant will be closed until further notice.
We would like to take this time to sincerely thank the brave firefighters and emergency crew who helped contain and minimize the damage. Outreach from the local area and far beyond was overhwhelming, and a true testament to what Spinnakers means to the community. We cannot thank you enough for the kind messages, words of encouragement and generosity through this disheartening time.
On a brighter note, the brewery and equipment will be operational soon, and we will continue to brew and distribute our beer across the province. The guesthouses are fully operational and the front desk is open and fully stocked with beer for sale, as well as all your favourite treats, truffles and soon to come, baked goods. All merchandise will be available at 50% off while supplies last!

Restorative measures are well under way in the restaurant and we look forward to making Spinnakers better than ever.

Want to get in touch? Feel free to give us a call, send an e-mail or stop by in person to chat! We look forward to seeing new and familiar faces in the months to come. Details on the re-opening will be updated frequently on our website and social pages.

Our 12 Bombers Advent Box is still available but they're going fast! While we can't tell you just what's inside (that would spoil the fun) we can tell you that several brews were made just for the box! This no-wrapping needed box makes a perfect gift for the craft beer enthusiast, or, if you just feel like treating yourself after all the stress of holiday shopping! Find it in select craft focused private and Government liquor stores across BC. Happy Holidays!
For a limited time only we will be selling mixed 4-packs of our barrel aged and sour ales for $8 off! Come down to the Spinnakers Front Desk, or one of our liquor stores, to get the deal. 

The Downbar will be open as of December 2nd, at 5pm! Join us for some holiday beer and charcuterie..

The Downbar will remain open daily from 11am-midnight.
