Taking its name from one of the Hip’s biggest hits, Courage (for Gord Downie) is described as “a refreshing and premium amber Wheat Ale – bold, beautiful and special – just like Gord.”
The label of Courage will feature a version of “By the Numbers”, a design created by artist Erin McGuire that features all of the numerical references from Tragically Hip songs. The artwork was originally released by McGuire as a poster that was sold via In Gord We Trust, a fundraising initiative for the Gord Downie Fund for Brain Cancer Research.
Batches of Courage will be brewed at both breweries, and it will be released in late November in a run of just over 2000 bottles. Partial proceeds will be donated to the Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada.
