Red Racer Across the Nation Collaboration Beers:

British Columbia – Moon Under Water Brewery: Kermode Kiwi Saison – The Kermode, or Spirit Bear, holds great legend in British Columbia indigenous culture. The Kermode Kiwi Saison uses local BC fruit as a tribute to this magnificent creature.

Alberta – Troubled Monk Brewery: Badlands Sour Brown Ale – The Badlands Sour Brown Ale is truly “Bad to the Bone”. In a good way of course. Paying tribute to the incredible Dinosaur National Park with a tasty and tart craft brew.

Saskatchewan – District Brewing Co.: Manitou Dunkel – The great spirit Manitou runs deep in Saskatchewan, as does the legacy of the early German settlers whose descendants flocked to the shores of Little Manitou Lake to enjoy a classic German Dunkel.

Manitoba – Barn Hammer Brewing Company: Narcisse Smoked Amber Saison – Red Sided Garter Snakes slither in Narcisse each spring. The world’s largest accumulation of these snakes happens just north of Winnipeg and this Amber Saison pays tribute to the annual spectacle.

Ontario – Nickel Brook Brewing Co.: Superior Berliner Weisse – You could say that Ontarians have a “Superior”-ity complex but with lakes this big, can you blame them? This brew should live up to Ontario standards with the use of BC fruit.

Québec – Brasserie Dunham: Eastern Townships Coffee Stout – Heading to the Eastern Townships you may want to stop in for a cup of coffee and a pint. This brew kills two birds with one stone as a classic dry coffee stout.

New Brunswick – Grimross Brewing Co.: Higher Tides Maplebock – The great force of the tide at the Bay of Fundy is a Canadian Icon, nearly as iconic as the maple leaf and the tree that lends its nectar to this Maplebock.

Nova Scotia – Tatamagouche Brewing Co.: Ocean Playground – Bronze medal winner at the 2019 Canadian Brewing Awards! The Nova Scotian coast reveals an ocean playground as far as they eye can see. On the far side of this jungle gym lies Belgium and the source of inspiration for this beer.

Prince Edward Island – Copper Bottom Brewing: Panmure Island Bohemian Pilsner– PEI’s Panmure Island has been shaped by time with its iconic beaches and sand dunes. Making a classic pilsner too takes great care and can only reach perfection with time and patience.

Newfoundland – Port Rexton Brewing Co.: Skerwink Haze Kveik NEIPA – Explore Canada’s Northeast on the Skerwink Trail. Pick a haze-free day and see for miles from the vista’s Newfoundland has to offer.

Yukon – Winterlong Brewing Co.: Top of the World NEIPA – If you head far enough north, eventually all paths lead south. Beyond Yukon’s Top of the World Highway, every direction seems to lead to New England and this juicy IPA.

Northwest Territories – NWT Brewing Co.: Mackenzie River Kӧlsch – Take a paddle down Canada’s longest river. After a long day of exploring Canada’s North, Mackenzie would have loved this refreshing and easy drinking Kolsch.
