OTTAWA, ON – In response to yesterday’s announcement by the Government of Ontario that the minimum retail price for beer in the province will be dropping to $1 per bottle or can, Dominion City Brewing has announced plans to release a new beer that puts a unique and charitable spin on the concept of “buck-a-beer.”
Buck-a-Beer (For Refugees in Ottawa) (5.5% abv) is described as follows:
As an independently-owned brewery, we can tell you unequivocally that it is impossible to sell a beer for a dollar without compromising quality. So, we’ve decided to respond to Ontario’s buck-a-beer challenge in our own way – by inviting our customers to help refugees build a new life in Ottawa. As our contribution, we’re donating $1 for every can of our forthcoming Dominion City Buck-A-Beer Blonde Ale to support refugee integration efforts in Ottawa.
Buck-a-Beer (For Refugees in Ottawa) will be available in 355 ml cans at the Dominion City retail shop and online store on Thursday August 30th at 11:00 AM.
