Vancouver Island Brewery Announces Surfrider Support Brew – Cast Your Vote!
Victoria, BC (April 4th, 2014) – Two epic forces collide to create the perfect wave – ocean swell and land. When the balance is just right the result is a perfect breaking wave, with a slight off shore breeze and enough juice to bring a smile to any surfers face.
While we may not wield the powers of mother nature, there is a new colossal force about to take place here in Victoria, BC. Vancouver Island Brewery and Surfrider Vancouver Island are teaming up to create a Surfrider Support Brew. But first we need your help. What makes this collaboration unique is that the beer style to be brewed for the Surfrider beer is in the hands of the public. We need you to help us choose what beer to brew. Voting begins April 1st, 2014 and runs through until midnight April 25th, 2014. There are 8 different beer styles to choose from and the beer style with the most votes on April 25th will be the beer Vancouver Island Brewery brews.

The Surfrider beer will be brewed at the beginning of May and launched the first week of June, quenching consumers thirst for the hot summer months. Vancouver Island Brewery will be donating 25¢ from every 650 mL bottle sold to the Surfrider Vancouver Island foundation to help aid in beach cleanups and awareness. “We live on an island; a very beautiful island, and as such we feel a strong connection to the environment and our beaches. Being a local craft brewery we feel it is our duty to pitch in where we can and help outstanding groups such as Surfrider Vancouver Island and its many initiatives” Said Rob Ringma, General Manager at Vancouver Island Brewery.
“Surfrider Vancouver Island is very excited to be partnering with Vancouver Island Brewery on the support brew. This is a dynamic initiative that provides both meaningful financial support for our programs and campaigns and valuable outreach. A tasty beer is a great way to connect with the local community and get the word out about Surfrider Foundation.” Said Lucas Harris, Vice Chairperson at Surfrider Vancouver Island.
