Celebrating the Legacy of Tim Jones at Deep Cove Brewery
The Deep Cove Brewers & Distillers is located at the foot of Vancouver’s North Shore. At the gateway to British Columbia’s outdoors, the brewery in inexplicably tied to the adventurers of Greater Vancouver. With adventure comes risk and for all those that take risks, in rare back country moments we rely on the expertise of others. In this case it is the North Shore Rescue team. In 2014 North Vancouver suffered the loss of a North Shore Rescue volunteer and local hero, Tim Jones.
Tim was the leading force behind the North Shore Rescue team and the saviour of countless lives in the BC back country. With his passing he Tim passed on the torch to the many that he taught and through his legacy he will not be soon forgotten. Deep Cove Brewers & Distillers has for the second year brewed the “Shredder” which is a Blonde Ale for 2015. The proceeds from this beer will be donated to the North Shore Rescue. To mark the beer launch and celbrate the amazing contribution that Tim made, an event was held at the brewery.
A few hundred people purchased tickets to the Shredder launch event where again in 2015 the proceeds were donated to the cause. In addition to ticket and liquor sales, local businesses also donated a wide range of silent auction items to support the cause and a private 6-course dinner was held. Attendees to the main event enjoyed craft beer, cocktails, delicious food and live music in the setting, North Vancouver sun.
Tim Jones is a man that made more of an impact on Vancouver than many will ever know. You can do your part to support his legacy and the difference that he made in keeping Vancouver’s backyard safe. Keep your eyes peeled for the Deep Cove Brewers & Distillers Shredder Blonde Ale on BC liquor store shelves all summer long.
