The massive brewing tanks arrived safely at the new Molson Coors site following their arduous journey overseas, up the Fraser River and overland.

The tanks, 11 metres across, made the final trip early Tuesday morning, necessitating several road closures.

Six of the largest brewing tanks were barged up the Fraser River to the Cattermole Industrial Park on Saturday. They were then hoisted onto large transport trucks for the final leg of the journey.

Another 16 of the large tanks are still on there way. The crew at Triple R and Supreme Structural Transport say tank transporting will continue through to June 5.

In all, nearly 50 tanks are being installed at the Molson Coors brewery, which plans to begin production in 2019.
