Compass Brewing has prepared a batch of HIchop: Bite Me American Brown Ale, while Full Beard is offering Warriors Beard lopno”a HIq Chocolate Chili Stout. Both beers will be launching next week at their respective breweries, and will be available at local music bar The Working Class during the April 21st concert by Klingon-language band Klingon Pop Warrior.
Both breweries and Klingon Rumpus events will be raising funds for Wounded Warriors Canada, a charity that provides service dogs for Canadian Forces veterans living with PTSD.
