First released in fall 2009 to honour the firefighters and emergency service workers who helped fight the fierce 2009 Okanagan Valley fires, the latest edition of Wildfire now pays tribute to those who battle wildfires all across Canada, with partial proceeds set to be donated to the Canadian Fallen Firefighters Foundation.
Cannery Brewing owner Patt Dyck describes the beer as follows:
It is intensely dark, but with malts that are subtle and smooth. Like raging forest fires, this dark IPA has complex hops that rage through to the finish. We modified the formulation of the Wildfire IPA, and this year’s Limited Release version is dry hopped with Simcoe and Amarillo hops. We hope to bring people a great tasting beer while also paying support to those firefighters we so desperately rely on each year.
Cannery Wildfire IPA will be available at the Cannery retail store in Penticton and at select liquor, craft beer stores and restaurants throughout British Columbia while supplies last.
