Phillips Brewing Releases 2019 Benefit Brews for Ocean Wise and Oldman Watershed Council

VICTORIA, BC – Phillips Brewing has announced the release of the two winning beers from its Benefit Brew 2019 competition.

The Benefit Brew release for British Columbia is Ocean Wise Juicy Pale Ale (5.2% abv), which will raise funds to help Ocean Wise in its work “engaging and inspiring the global community to join forces toward protecting the health of our oceans.” It’s described as follows:

Hopped judiciously with Sabro and Ekuanot cryo hops, Ocean Wise Juicy Pale Ale is a full-bodied, easy-drinking beer that pours a beautiful hazy light gold. Bursting with a tropical nose and aromas of stone fruit, candied lemon and tangerine, the taste is smooth, fresh and fruity.

In Alberta, Benefit Brew supporters will be able to pick up Oldman Watershed Council Hazy Kolsch Style Ale in support of Oldman Watershed Council, which is dedicated to “protecting the health of the water and environment for all those who live, work and play in the Oldman Watershed through boots-on-the-ground restoration, education and research.” The beer has the following notes:

This unfiltered hazy ale has loads of wheat malt and flaked oats making a very drinkable style even more drinkable. Golden in colour with a hazy finish this Kolsch-style ale is well-balanced with a light fruity flavor and dry finish.

Both releases will be available in 473 ml cans at select beer retailers in their respective provinces for a limited time.
