The Fine N’ Dandy project started in 2017 when Walkerville brewer Jeffrey Craig was diagnosed with esophageal cancer, and got together with Bryan Datoc of Craft Heads to brew a pair of beers infused with dandelion tea, a nod to the fact that dandelion root has been studied as a possible treatment for cancer.
While Jeffery sadly passed away later that year, the breweries have continued brewing Fine N’ Dandy beers each spring in his honour, with Walkerville releasing Fine N’ Dandy Dandelion Infused Unfiltered Pils (5.2% abv) and Craft Heads offering Fine N’ Dandy Dandelion Saison (6.2% abv). For the 2022 release, proceeds from both beers will support the Windsor Cancer Centre Foundation.
