PENTICTON, BC – Cannery Brewing has announced the release of this year’s edition of the annual charity beer Wildfire IPA, a timely return given the especially destructive wildfire season that British Columbia is experiencing this year.
First released in fall 2009 to honour the firefighters and emergency service workers who helped fight that year’s fierce 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 Black IPA is a 6.5% abv and 88 IBU 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 2017 edition of Cannery Wildfire Black IPA is now available at the Cannery retail store in Penticton, and soon at select liquor stores and bars throughout British Columbia while supplies last.
