Last night we kicked back and enjoyed some East Abby crafts beers and live music under a twinkling string of lights on a couple of lawn chairs (with green grass under our feet!) How many places can you say you’re doing that on a week night in May when it’s not in your own backyard?
In our very own City of Abbotsford that’s where! Field House Brewing Co. opened in January with the fire-place ablaze! Over ten varieties on tap offering a full craft beer experience.
The building itself used to be a industrial mechanic shop, now converted into a tasting room, massive lawn & brewery on-site.
We were thrilled to meet Josh Vanderheide when visiting Spruce Collective one rainy Saturday when he was selling his Field House merchandise (P.S if you’re looking for a couple of neat caps, sweaters or tees you’ve got to check them out). Turns out it was a timely meeting as the old mechanic shop was in the middle of major renovations for a complete overhaul and Josh was just in the process of deciding on the new flooring for the Tasting Room.
Right up our line of work we made sure we looked after our fellow beer drinking buddy by supplying 900sq/ft of loose lay vinyl plank. Increasingly more popular than ever this flooring is much more water resistant to a laminate or hardwood.
Proving to be most beneficial for the crew after a spill from a beer keg when they needed to lift an area of the flooring (no glue, nails or tape) to dry out completely avoiding future water damage and mould. It was such a relief to Josh that they could simply put all the flooring back without hassle or additional cost. We continue to recommended this product for residential homes as well as commercial buildings especially now they come in so many varied colours.
What we truly appreciate about this new shop on the block, is the spirit of community the brewery has brought to the heart of Abbotsford, and the collaborations it continues to make with other small local businesses.
Follow them on Instagram and you won’t miss the $5 beer days, lives music nights or upcoming events they spring. It’s going to be a fantastic summer to stretch out on the grass and bring the kids because there is plenty of action in the Field CubbyHouse for them!
