   MEMORIAL BREW FOR  A VANCOUVER BEER LEGEND 
DAN SMALL'S STRATHCONA PALE ALE: As an homage to a Vancouver institution, this 
brew, taken directly from his recipe book, is one of the most often made by both new and
veteran patrons of Dan Small's landmark brew shop. Opening 'Dan's Homebrewing
Supplies' in 1991, Dan inspired and served home brewers and many current commercial
brewers (including 3 of our own!) in and around Vancouver until he succumbed to
cancer on July 31st, 2013.
Crafted to commemorate his contributions to the brewing community, this is Bomber's third
memorial brew using one of Dan's recipes, but this, his traditional Pale Ale, is the first we 
have bottled. 
A donation of $.50 from the sale of each bottle will be made to Vancouver's InspireHealth
Supportive Cancer Care, an organization that provides care for people with cancer diagnoses.
