New brew pub for central Abbotsford gets OK from council

Trading Post Brewing wants to open restaurant & brew at Gladwin Road location

Langley-based Trading Post Brewing Company’s request for a licence for a new brew pub in central Abbotsford was approved in principal Monday, but will return to council to allow the public a chance to comment.

The company had applied to the City of Abbotsford for a new licence to serve liquor out of a new building at Central Park Village on Gladwin Road, just north of George Ferguson Way. Trading Post hopes to operate a 200-seat restaurant, while also brewing and selling its own beer out of the building.

Trading Post brews most of its beer in Langley, just north of the bypass, and it also operates a pub in Fort Langley.

The new pub would also include a 65-seat patio area.

The brewery must also receive approval for the pub from the provincial Liquor Control and Licencing Branch.

Mayor Henry Braun recused himself because of a business relationship with one of the applicants.
