New Collaborative BC Craft Beer Supports Industry Charity
October 1, 2018 (Vancouver, BC) – The BC Hospitality Foundation (BCHF) is pleased to announce it will receive proceeds from the sale of a special BC-made craft beer being released during BC Craft Beer Month in October 2018. The BC Beer Triple Dry-Hopped Lager Collaboration Brew is a joint project involving BC Craft Brewers Guild, BREWHALL Beer Co., Phillips Brewing & Malting Co., IMS Labels, and West Coast Canning.
The fundraising initiative exemplifies the BCHF’s core idea that members of the hospitality sector should work together to help their own. Over the years the Foundation has expanded to also award scholarships to students enrolled in courses related to the hospitality field, and some of the funds raised by the collaborative beer will be dedicated specifically to a brewing-related scholarship.
The fundraising project was conceived and championed by the BC Craft Brewers Guild, which has been looking to support the BCHF for some time. Executive Director Ken Beattie notes that he is “always impressed by the talent and generosity of BC’s craft beer industry. When someone comes up with an idea to help others, there’s never a shortage of people and businesses that are willing to get behind it.” Dana Harris, the BCHF’s Executive Director, says the Foundation is “so excited about the project, and so grateful for the support we’re receiving from the craft beer sector…it’s a real testament to what we can do when we put our heads together.”
