TORONTO, ON – Great Lakes Brewery has announced the release of a new beer in collaboration with a local charitable organisation that is dedicated to “enhancing the quality of lives of those living with Autism.”
Shining Through New England Pale Ale (4.3% abv) was brewed in mid-March with staff from The Shining Through Centre, as well as two participants in the Centre’s ‘Learn to Live’ program. The resulting beer is described as follows:
This New England Pale Ale pours a very hazy dull yellow and is topped with a snowy white peak. Aromas of honeydew melon, white grape and mango are prominent with each sniff of the glass. Light to medium bodied with a soft yet noticeable bitterness, Shining Through NE Pale Ale offers subtle notes of fresh tangerine, more melon and a touch of lemon. Lots of flavour packed into a low abv offering.
Shining Through is available now via the Great Lakes Brewery online store for delivery throughout Ontario. $1 from each can sold will support the Shining Through Centre and its Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapy programs for children and youths in autism.
