Also revealed are some details about the beer that the group will be creating:

The beer itself will bring together ingredients from local brewing regions across Canada, like Red Fife wheat from Ontario and natural Wildflower honey from Alberta, into an imperial Witbier christened the Red and White Wit. Each brewery is contributing a little piece of the recipe, with the final draft-only release expected in the Victoria area in early June. Full proceeds will be donated to a cause but the specifics haven’t been worked out yet; being brewers the group resolved to answer that question the best way they know how: over a beer.

The Canadian Craft Beer Collaboration brewing session will take place at Phillips Brewing on Friday May 10th from 2:00 to 5:00 PM.
