Raven Cream Ale and East Side Bitter 6 packs are here…
BC beer drinkers rejoice as R&B Brewing Co. announces two favourites are now available in Six Packs!
The most popular beers in the R&B Brewing collection are the Raven Cream Ale and the East Side Bitter(previously only available in single 650 ml bottles or in 19L and 50 L kegs).These two award winning brews are the first of many R&B Brewing Co. beers that will be available in the 341 ml bottles, sold in six packs.
“Craft beer is no longer a niche market; the movement in B.C. and particularly in Vancouver is exploding at the moment,” says R&B Brewing Co. co-owner, Rick Dellow (the R in R&B). “Barry and I have been wanting to make the leap to six packs for a while and we feel the right time is now.”
R&B Brewing Co believes hand crafted beer deserves hand crafted packaging. Every detail from the new label, to the bar code has been hand rendered by St. Bernadine Mission Communications.The new design is reflective of the East Vancouver neighbourhood where the brewery is located.

R&B Brewing Co., in partnership with Salt Spring Coffee, is pleased to announce the launch of our newest beer, Spirit Chaser Coffee Porter. We’ve infused a rich porter with direct trade coffee from the Aceh Gayo region of Indonesia to create this uniquely flavoured brew. A heady ale with a chocolate and roast coffee flavour, this beer is a wonderfully balanced drink and a proudly interesting addition to the R&B line up. Try this collaboration that spans from the jungles of Sumatra to the urban jungle of East Vancouver.
What Is A Spirit Chaser?
In Sumatran tradition, a spirit chaser is a carved wooden totem that, like a Native American dreamcatcher, is used to protect sleeping people from subconscious negativity. While dreamcatchers filter bad dreams from good, spirit chasers (which take many forms, from dragons to monkeys to the strangely gallant flying pig) are supposed to ward off evil spirits from harming dreamers. They guide their charges from the dream world to the real world, ensuring that those who leave reality at night awaken safely in the morning. Not unlike a designated driver.

For limited release only, Vancouver’s Local Microbrewery, R&B Brewing Co. introduces Iceholes Celebration Lager in response to the recent “Don’t be an Ice-Hole” campaign against Canada started by Stephen Colbert, of Comedy Central’s Colbert Report. Barry Benson, co-owner of R&B Brewing Co. says “ We are proud syrup-sucking Canadian iceholes. In celebration of our icehole-ish behaviour we have decided to get even rather than get mad. Canadians can wreak their revenge against Stephen Colbert in a truly Canadian way and have a beer.”
