NEW WESTMINSTER, BC – Steel & Oak Brewing has announced details of its second annual Women’s Charity Brew.
Talanoa (5.6% abv) is a wheat ale with black currant and rosemary that was brewed in early February by the female brewers and staff of Steel & Oak. Its name has the following back story:
Talanoa is the Fijian word for sharing stories and ideas in order to nurture understanding and build relationships. Those experiencing mental health and wellness challenges often lose relationships, as well as the ability to share their stories without discrimination. In order to change the stigma around mental health, we need to start talking freely and without judgement. The women of Steel & Oak encourage you to share your mental health story.
Talanoa will be launched at Sapperton District Taphouse on Thursday March 7th at 6:00 PM, with an fundraising event that will feature a “silent auction, raffle prizes, food and beer pairings, and even a Talanoa beer soap to purchase, made by our friends at Peregrine Supply Co.”
Proceeds from the launch event and sales of Talanoa will be donated to The Kettle Society, a non-profit organization that “supports people living with mental illness to lead healthier lives.”
