SQUAMISH, BC – Howe Sound Brewing has announced the launch of Ales For Change, a series of limited edition beers that will assist fundraising activities in different communities.
The first beer in the series, Boomer’s Canadian Red Ale, was named in honour of Andrew “Boomer” Eykelenboom, a Canadian Armed Forces Medic killed in Afghanistan in 2006. In his memory, his parents set up the Boomer Legacy Fund, with all proceeds being given to a CAF trust fund for solders in Afghanistan to distribute to needy causes within the war-torn country.
Howe Sound describes the beer as follows:
Boomer was known to have an appreciation for good red ales, and this Canadian Red Ale is brewed with five different malts with Magnum and Perle hops. We know he would have enjoyed it. We hope you will too.
Boomer’s Canadian Red Ale is available now in 1 litre bottles at BCLD locations throughout British Columbia, and it will remain on the market for approximately three months. A dollar from every bottle sold will be donated to the Boomer Legacy Fund.
