Boxing Rock & Garrison Releasing Collaborative Tribute to Gord Downie

SHELBURNE, NS & HALIFAX, NS – Boxing Rock Brewing & Garrison Brewery have announced details of an upcoming collaborative beer that is being released as a tribute to Gord Downie of The Tragically Hip.

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.
