2015 Phillips Benefit Brew Recipients Announced

wpid-wp-1447714498425.jpegNovember 16th, 2015 – The votes are in and we’re thrilled to announce that the Dogwood Rescue Society (BC) and Edmonton Area Land Trust (AB) as this year’s Benefit Brew Winners!.

We will be brewing up a delicious red lager for the Dogwood crew, and a special one-off Oatmeal Brown Ale for the Edmonton Area Land Trust.  Full proceeds from the sale of each will be donated to their causes (~$10,000 each!).  The brews are slated to hit the shelves in early February, but in the meantime here’s a little snapshot of the incredible work these groups do:

Dogwood Rescue is group of passionate, talented, caring volunteers who want to help the thousands of dogs who are homeless because of abandonment or abuse.  They rehome sporting breeds such as Pointers, Vizslas, Weimaraners, as well as Dobermans, Hounds and senior dogs.  They are particularly partial to seniors.


Edmonton Area Land Trust (EALT)works to benefit wildlife and people by protecting natural areas and preserving biodiversity. They steward these special places with volunteers and neighbors who are critical to their work, and educate the public to protect nature for future generations.

 STAY TUNED for in BC for the Dogwood Rescue Society Red Lager, and in Alberta for the Edmonton Area Land Trust Oatmeal Brown Ale.  Both brews should be hitting the shelves in early February.

We would also like to thank everyone who nominated, voted and participated in the project this year; especially the other finalists. They all do incredible work and for participating as a finalist each will receive a $500 donation. Please check them out below and consider lending your support.
