PENTICTON, BC – Cannery Brewing has announced the launch of a new beer that pays tribute to an iconic historical landmark in Penticton.
The S.S. Sicamous is a large steamboat that was in operation in the Okanagan Valley from 1914 to 1935. It is currently open as a museum and events facility, and is being restored by the S.S. Sicamous Restoration Society.
To raise funds for the cause, Cannery is releasing Lakeboat Lager, a benefit beer that brewery co-owner Patt Dyck describes as follows:
For craft-beer lovers or for those that are new to the world of hand-crafted, small-batch micro-brewed beers, this is a great beer because the mellow malts and exciting hops of this lager are carefully balanced to produce a crisp, clean, refreshing finish. It’s a very versatile beer that is great whether it’s enjoyed on a hot day or while watching a hockey game, paired alongside a broad range of foods or served alone.
Cannery Lakeboat Lager will be officially launched today (November 28th) at 5:00 PM with a christening event on-board the Sicamous, and it will soon be available on tap and in 650 ml bottles at outlets throughout British Columbia.
