About the beers:

Dogwood Rescue Society Red Lager – 5.0%

Dogwood Rescue Society’s mission is to re-home homeless, unwanted or abused sporting and working dogs.  It’s a message that resonated with craft beer drinkers as they were chosen as the 2015 BC Benefit Brew winner!! Full proceeds from the sale of this beer will go to help them provide the same amazing service they have been for the last 30 years.

*available in private liquor stores in BC, mostly around Victoria and Vancouver.

Edmonton & Area Land Trust Oatmeal Brown Ale – 5.0%

Chosen by the public as the 2015 Benefit Brew winner, the Edmonton & Area Land Trust works to benefit wildlife and people by protecting natural areas and preserving biodiversity for future generations to come.  Full proceeds from the sale of this brew will go to help them continue to do that incredible work.

*available exclusively in Alberta

Imperial Rye Lager – 7.2%

Beginning as a full-bodied imperial lager, a murderous amount of rye thickens the plot, adding a subtle spice note to a deliciously balanced brew.  Pours a deep amber colour with a medium off-white head. Fruit esters on the nose lead to full flavours of toasted rye bread underpinned with subtle sweetness. Cold conditioned for a very smooth mouthfeel that finishes clean.

*available for a limited time at select craft-focused private liquor stores.
