$1 from every Lemon Curacao SMASH IPA will be donated to A Better Life Foundation

Red Truck Craft Group ShotRed Truck Beer is excited to have partnered with Craft Beer Market to brew up something new for spring. Lemon Curacao SMASH IPA is a single malt and single hop IPA which supports a great community cause while pleasing taste buds with a big citrusy blast of IPA flavour.

The Lemon Curacao SMASH IPA has been brewed with Superior Pilsen malts that give it a soft biscuity malt base that’s pleasing on the tongue. That base has been supercharged with Citra hops in the kettle and whirlpool before being dry-hopped to perfection. The burst of Citra hops flavour is enhanced with the late kettle addition of bitter orange and lemon peel for a full, intense, delicious citrus bouquet.

This very special beer will launch on March 6th and, from then until June 5th, $1 from every beer poured at Craft Beer Market will be donated to A Better Life Foundation to support their work in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside. Giving local goes hand in hand with drinking local, and both Red Truck and Craft Beer Market are pleased to be able to support the projects ABLF runs to offer food security to at-risk Vancouverites.
