VICTORIA, BC – Vancouver Island Brewery has announced a partnership with Surfrider Vancouver Island in support of Combing the Coast, a program that has been hitting Vancouver Island beaches over the past five years in an effort to clean up and reduce debris.
Corresponding with the launch of this year’s edition of Beachcomber Summer Ale, the partnership will see the brewery supporting and raising awareness for the work that the Vancouver Island chapter of the Surfrider Foundation does to protect Vancouver Island waters and beaches through strong beach cleanup, debris analysis and data collection.
To celebrate this partnership, Vancouver Island Brewery will be hosting an open house on Saturday, May 11th from 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM, where they will be pouring samples of Beachcomber Summer Ale and a special cask of Flying Tanker White IPA. The afternoon will also feature free brewery tours and representatives of Surfrider on-site to talk about their beach cleanups and other activities.
In addition, Vancouver Island Brewery is running a contest for a Barracuda ‘Baby Egg’ Surfboard, with entries being accepted via the VIB Facebook page until May 24th,.
