Vancouver Craft Beer Week Charity Brew
In celebration of BC’s largest craft beer festival, the province’s finest breweries banded together to brew “PrevAle” the 2014 VCBW charity beer.
Last year the VCBW charity beer produced a cheque for $3,500 to Mark Brand’s A Better Life Foundation in support of the Save On Meats Meal Token Program. This year, the Music Heals Foundation, a charity close to the heart of VCBW 2014 host Prevail (Swollen Members), will benefit from the sale of this beer with a purpose, which will be released prior to the start of this year’s festival.
The beer, a double California Common-style ale, is a unique brew that Gary Lohin (Central City Brewers + Distillers) and Matt Phillips (Phillips Brewing Company) dreamt up while attending the inaugural Victoria Beer Week earlier this month. With these two brewmasters at the helm, expect a balanced full-bodied beer rich in flavour that is sure to be talked about for years to come.
