You have to love a craft brewery that has a mission statement like this: "To create a space for our community to connect, grow and thrive while we endlessly pursue brewing perfection... one pint at a time."
Situated on Ricther St across from the old Calona Wines location, Red Bird has a funky indoor space along with a huge parking lot/event space where they host live music on Saturday afternoons during the spring, summer, and fall.
The brewery was named after a race boat from back in the day named "Red Bird" as they wanted to pay homage to the Kelowna Regatta that was a huge drawing force going back to the earliest days of the city.
Artists who have played at Red Bird Brewing include Andrew Judah, Anna Katarina, Ben Klick,
