2016 Benefit Brew Charities announced by Phillips Brewing

2016 Benefit Brew Winners Announced by Phillips Brewing Co.

November 21st, 2016 – The votes are in and we’re thrilled to announce that S.A.I.N.T.S. Rescue (BC) and Zoe’s Animal Rescue (AB) as this year’s Benefit Brew Winners!

We will be brewing up a delicious Imperial Pilsner for the S.A.I.N.T.S. Rescue crew, and a special one-off Cascadian Dark Ale for Zoe’s Animal Rescue. 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:

phillips-benefit-saintsS.A.I.N.T.S. is an end-of-life sanctuary for senior, palliative and special needs animals that have nowhere else to go. We provide a special place to be loved and cherished, and our animals receive proper medical care for the rest of their days. All animals deserve to have hope for a better tomorrow.



phillips-benefit-rescue Zoe’s Animal Rescue is a volunteer run registered charity. Through fostering, rehabilitation, medical and adoption programs we rehome hundreds of animals a year. Partnering with vulnerable individuals and communities, providing food, veterinary services, overpopulation control and emergency care to keep pets and their people together. Happy animals means happy people.

STAY TUNED for in BC for the S.A.I.N.T.S. Rescue Imperial Pilsner, and in Alberta for Zoe’s Animal Rescue Cascadian Dark Ale. Both brews should be hitting the shelves in early February.
