Steam Whistle Brewing April E-News
Announcing the Unveiling of Steam Whistle's Vintage Hot Rod Driven By 100% Green Electricity

Steam Whistle brewing, arguably Canada's greenest brewery adds to our environmental commitment with a custom-built, earth-friendly vintage ride. RETRO ELECTRO, a 1958 Chevy Apache Pickup 1/2 ton short box with side step, retrofitted with a high-efficiency AC motor capable of generating 465 foot-pounds of torque, is on par with the power of any gas-guzzling muscle car; yet emissions-free as it is Bullfrogpowered® with 100 per cent BC wind power. This will be no coddled show car for the brewery, but a beer-hauling workhorse and daily ride for Steam Whistle's B.C. resident manager, Mike Kiraly, the brains behind the Retro Electro project.
