6th, 2017 - We aren't
sure if the ground hog saw his shadow last week, because our bottling
crew had their heads buried in beer getting 3 special seasonal brews
cued up for today!
After debuting last year, Space Goat Oat Pale Ale makes a triumphant
return alongside our 2017 Benefit
Brews. BC will see an Imperial Pilsner brewed
Animal Rescue, and our Alberta friends can help Zoe's
Animal Rescue Society by enjoying their custom
Cascadian Dark Ale. Full proceeds from the sale of each Benefit
Brew will go to support the causes.
We'd like to note that although these bombers cast a shadow, we can't
verify how many weeks they will be on shelves; it is recommended thay
craft beer lovers grab them while they can.
