R&B Brewing debuts Star Stuff collaboration brew honouring 50 years of discovery and innovation at TRIUMF

Newswise — Vancouver, BC — Strap in for the launch of a unique collaboration between two Vancouver originals.

TRIUMF, Canada’s particle accelerator centre, has joined forces with R&B Brewing, one of Vancouver’s original East Van breweries, to create an anniversary beer to celebrate the lab’s five-decade history of cutting-edge science and discovery.

The collaboration’s result is Star Stuff Red ISA, a well-balanced Red Indian Session Ale hopped with Azacca, El Dorado and Denali hops, and a big bang of tropical flavours. Star Stuff debuted last night at #discoverTHIS with TRIUMF and R&B, an evening of discovery, celebration, and conversation hosted by journalist and broadcaster Paolo Pietropaolo at MakerLabs. The event, which is part of TRIUMF’s yearlong anniversary programming, featured a first taste of this stellar anniversary brew and a discussion on the intriguing parallels between science and beer making.

“As Carl Sagan famously said, ‘We are made of star stuff.’ And beer, of course, is too,” said Jonathan Bagger, TRIUMF’s Director. “The science-savvy beer makers at R&B have done an exceptional job of capturing the essence of star stuff and the TRIUMF spirit in this special brew.”
