VICTORIA, BC – Phillips Brewing has started making plans for this year’s edition of its annual Phillips Benefit Brew, and as in past years, the brewery is asking the community to help select a worthy charity to support.
From the press release:
Benefit Brew is an annual project where Phillips Brewing Company creates a custom brew for a cause. The beer is named after the charity, given a custom-designed label, and full proceeds are donated (approx. $10,000). Which cause? That’s up to you!
Nominate your favourite charity until October 26th at www.benefitbrew.com. Any federally registered charity can be nominated, but in support of age-related alcohol marketing regulations, children’s charities cannot be accepted. All 10 charities who are selected to participate in the vote also receive a $500 donation regardless of where they end up at the end of the voting period.
Following the nomination period, public voting for a winner from the 10 chosen nominees will run from November 3rd to 15th. The winning charity will be announced on November 17th, and the custom charity beer will be brewed in mid December for a January release.
More details including full nomination criteria is available on the Phillips Benefit Brew website.
