Vancouver Craft Beer Week Charity Beer Brewed Today at Central City


VANCOUVER, BC – The countdown to the 2014 edition of Vancouver Craft Beer Week (VCBW) kicked into high gear today with a collaborative brewing session at Central City Brewers + Distillers to create this year’s VCBW charity beer.

Led by Central City’s Gary Lohin and Matt Phillips of Phillips Brewing, more than 80 guests from B.C.’s craft beer industry gathered to pitch in on the brewing of VCBW PrevAle, a double California Common-style ale that will be released in May in time for VCBW 2014, which runs May 30th to June 7th at various bars and venues throughout Vancouver.

Proceeds from the sale of PrevAle will go to support the Music Heals Foundation, an organization that raises awareness of the healing powers of music and fundraises for music therapy and related services across Canada.
