First Friday Brew Bus
Local beer enthusiasts and First Friday revelers have one more reason to celebrate this holiday weekend: complimentary bus service on the all-new First Friday Brew Bus will be available between downtown Canton’s First Friday festivities and Royal Docks Brewing Company in Jackson Township from 6:00-10:00 pm this Friday, July 1.
The First Friday Brew Bus is a collaborative effort which includes the Canton Regional Chamber of Commerce, Downtown Canton Special Improvement District, Jackson-Belden Chamber of Commerce, Canton First Friday, Royal Docks Brewing Co. and Buzzbin Music Shop.
How the First Friday Brew Bus Works:
- Two dedicated “Brew Buses” will begin service at 6:00 pm this Friday; one catty-cornered to Buzzbin Music Shop (corner of Cleveland Ave. and 4th St. NW), and one at Royal Docks (7162 Fulton Drive, Canton, Ohio, 44718 in Noble’s Pond Plaza), with departures from each location every half hour. The last departure from each location will be at 9:30 pm.
- Riders are allowed to take beer, wine or cocktails on the bus, which they must finish or dispose of by the time they exit the bus. Those departing from Royal Docks will be provided a Royal Docks-issued plastic cup for their libations and can also take growlers onboard, while those departing from downtown Canton must board with a DORA (Downtown Outdoor Refreshment Area) cup, which can be purchased at any participating DORA establishment.
- Riders cannot take their own beer, wine or liquor on the bus.
- Royal Docks will be open until midnight on Friday and offer free parking for anyone taking the Brew Bus downtown.
The first 100 riders to board the buses this Friday will receive a complimentary First Friday Brew Bus t-shirt. Royal Docks will also provide complimentary empty growlers and a $10 gift card to the first 24 riders coming to Royal Docks from downtown.
