VICTORIA, BC – Vancouver Island Brewery has announced that it will be raising funds for the Surfrider Foundation once again this year, but rather than donating proceeds from the sales of Beachcomber Summer Ale as was done last year, a new and exclusive beer will be created for the occasion – and the public is being asked to help decide what to brew.
From now until April 25th, a voting page on the VIB website will allow visitors to choose from a shortlist of 8 different beer styles, including:
- North West Pale Ale
- West Coast Common
- Blonde Ale
- Cream Ale
- Brown Ale
- Bohemian Pilsner
A beer in the winning style will be brewed in early May for release in June, and will remain available throughout the summer, with 25 cents from the sale of each 650 ml bomber being donated to the Surfrider Foundation to support their work in beach cleanups and awareness.
