HAMILTON, ON – Grain & Grit Beer Co. is getting set to release a new beer in support of a charity raising funds to fight a severe form of muscular dystrophy.
Max’s Big Beer is a Milkshake IPA with peach and vanilla, two favourite flavours of seven-year-old Max Sedmihradsky who inspired the beer.
Max has Duchenne muscular dystrophy, and over the past three years he and his father Andrew have raised more than $140,000 for research into the disease through Max’s Big Ride, a 600 km trip from Hamilton to Ottawa that they take via cargobike each summer.
Max’s Big Beer will be going on sale at Grain & Grit in on June 10th, and 50 cents from each sale will be donated to the Gunning Group Lab at the University of Toronto Mississauga via the Jesse’s Journey charity.
