Kamloops’ downtown brewery is a gathering place for beer lovers.
Brewmaster David Beardsell has a long history of brewing in Kamloops dating back to the 1990s when he opened the city’s first microbrewery, Bear Brewing. After some time away spent travelling with this family in a converted bus, he got back into the brewing game by opening the Noble Pig Brewhouse, a food-focused brewpub, and consulting on some other brewery start-ups before deciding to open this place. Red Collar has a big 80-seat tasting room along with an outdoor patio space, and the beer list is diverse and interesting. Recently, he has started taking a step back from day-to-day operations, handing the reins to a new head brewer and his daughter Lara, who manages the business side of the company.
