PENTICTON, BC – Cannery Brewing has announced the release of this year’s edition of the annual charity beer Wildfire IPA.
First released in fall 2009 to honour the firefighters and emergency service workers who helped fight the fierce 2009 Okanagan Valley fires, Wildfire now pays tribute to those who battle fires across Canada, with partial proceeds donated to the Canadian Fallen Firefighters Foundation.
Wildfire IPA is a 6.5% abv and 88 IBU dark ale described as follows:
This unique black India Pale Ale is a tribute to the firefighters and emergency service workers who help fight our Canadian wildfires each year. Wildfire IPA is intensely dark and smooth. This black IPA has complex hops that rage through to the finish. Fierce Hop, Gentle Bite!
The 2016 edition of Cannery Wildfire IPA will be released later this month, and will be available at the Cannery retail store in Penticton and select liquor stores and restaurants throughout British Columbia while supplies last.
