For the second year in a row the Muddbunnies Race Team is thrilled to announce sponsorship collaboration with Red Racer Beer out of Central City Brewing Company in Surrey, BC! From their flagship India Pale Ale to the limited release Winter Ale, every one of their beers is designed to challenge and delight even the most discerning connoisseur. Red Racer Beer was named the Best Brewery in Canada at the 2010 Canadian Brewing Awards, one of the numerous awards won in the last several years. All of their award winning lagers and ales are made with only the finest ingredients available worldwide.
Both the Muddbunnies Race Team and Red Racer Beer believe in pushing the boundaries whether it be progressing the sport of womens cycling or crafting up some great brew, so this relationship is a no brainer. Many goals were reached during the 2011 season and we couldnâ€™t have done it without the support of Red Racer Beer. We look forward another successful year in 2012!
You can find Red Racer Beer at your local liquor store, on tap at the finest establishments or in the hands of a Muddbunnie!
Below is a Q&A with Red Racer Beer president Darryll Frost.
What does the relationship between the Red Racer brand and cycling mean to Central City Brewing?
As a company we feel it important to embrace such a positive culture. Our head brewer Gary Lohin grew up on the North Shore and has been an avid mountain biker for most of his life. As a company we believe in the benefits the sport can have on an individuals life, and always want to encourage its active participation. Secondly, we recognize the relationship the craft beer industry has had with cycling over the years. Is there really any better way to wind down after a ride than with a nice craft beer?
Are there a lot of cyclists within the Central City / Red Racer company?
Aside from Gary, a number of us ride on a regular basis. For example, I do my best to get out on my road bike as often as possible. Be it comuiting, distance road rides, mountain biking, or even BMXing I know that most of brewery staff try to get out on their bikes as often as possible.
Thank you Darryll!
