R and B BREWING

EAST VANCOUVER ORIGINAL SINCE 1997

R&B Brewing is one of the innovative beer brewing companies that have continued to yield satisfactory beers made from excellent malts and hops. The company is known for its trusted and creatively crafted beers that yield a soothing effect to the drinkers. The brewmaster sought to create deliciously hand crafted ales and lagers that would bear no resemblance to the world of big beer. Full-bodied and distinctly rich beer, using only the choicest malts, hops and yeast, would be the focus of the product, while the owners personalities would blend to create the marketing milieu – edgy, young, independent…definitely East Van.

R&B have excellent categories of awarded brands that drinkers can choose from depending on their preferences. It is of no doubt among the leading Vancouver Breweries companies that many people have continued to source beers from.
