Gold Rush! El Dorado in BC summer exhibition

QUESNEL, BRITISH COLUMBIA (June 23, 2015) – The Royal BC Museum and Barkerville Brewing have partnered to create Mucho Oro golden lager, the signature beer of the Gold Rush! El Dorado in BC feature exhibition running May 13 – Oct. 31, 2015 in Victoria.

There was Mucho Oro to be found in the Cariboo, but no one said it would be easy. Just like the elusive gold nugget, this lager is worth the effort. As fresh and crisp as the spring water flowing from the Cariboo Mountains, Mucho Oro is crafted in a style reminiscent of the California Common steam beer popular with the early miners who rushed north to seek their fortune in BC. Pilsner and British style pale malt lend a slightly sweet finish that compliments the conservative contribution of the American hops in this easy-drinking 5.2%, 15 IBU beer.

Look for Mucho Oro in select government and private liquor stores throughout BC, and at fine pubs near you. But stake your claim quickly, because like the gold, there’s only a finite amount to go around – 9,200 bottles to be exact. Ten per cent of the profits of Mucho Oro sales will be donated to the Royal BC Museum Foundation.

Mucho Oro Gold Rush! Contest

Look under the cap of each bottle of Mucho Oro for a chance to win one of five prize packages that include one gold nugget and two tickets to the Gold Rush! El Dorado in BC exhibition at the Royal BC Museum in Victoria. Each lucky winner will also have a chance to win the grand prize trip for four to Barkerville Historic Town in 2016, complete with car rental from anywhere in BC, two-night’s accommodation, admission to Barkerville Historic Town, gold panning lessons and more. The contest runs from June 1 to November 8, 2015.
