bridge brewing charity ale


Bridge Brewing is part of the North Shore community and founders Jason and Leigh Stratton often participate in fundraisers that support organizations that impact their family, friends and neighbours. Cancer has touched their inner circle and on March 1, Bridge will launch their newest brew ­­– Bridge to the Max Charity Ale – to help raise awareness and money for the BC Cancer Foundations' Ride to Conquer Cancer. Bridge will donate $1.00 from every bomber or glass of its special brew to a team of local cyclists called To the Max. The fundraiser ends once the tank is empty.

Bridge brewery assistant, Mac Eldon, is excited to take part in his first ride with the To The Max Team and is happy that Bridge developed a special brew to support this cause. For the sixth consecutive year, To The Max, will ride in this two-day cycling event beginning on June 14. Since 2009, this North Vancouver team has raised nearly $359,000 towards treatment and research done through the BC Cancer Foundation.

To whet your thirst here is a little about the Bridge to the Max Charity Ale:

Tasting Notes

This dry hopped Golden Ale has a zesty aroma consisting of mandarin, peach and pink grapefruit thanks to the Ella and Topza hops. These flavours pair perfectly with a crisp day outside with your buddies or after a long bike ride raising funds for To The Max. To The Max is a sessionable ale that you'll want to share with the whole team.

5.5% ABV (alcohol by volume)
41 IBU (bitterness)
