Port Moody, BC, July 28, 2022 – Port Moody’s Twin Sails Brewing is proud to continue supporting the 2SLGBTQIA+ community with the launch of its annual release of the limited-edition Pride Dat Juice can. Available now across the province, proceeds from every four-pack sold supports Out On Screen’s 2022 Vancouver Queer Film Festival (VQFF), which curates local and international films that illuminate, celebrate, and bring positive change for queer, trans, and Two Spirit lives.
In addition to the Pride Can release, Twin Sails is also hosting a special warm-up pattie-o today, July 28, 2022 at its Port Moody brewery (2821 Murray Street) with AfroQueer YVR. From 2 p.m. to 5 p.m., enjoy Jamaican patties by Elbo Patties and party vibes by DJ Nea Stone Fox. Drop-ins welcome.
“Out On Screen does incredible work in the 2SLGBTQIA+ community, and we are excited for the opportunity to partner with them and support the Vancouver Queer Film Festival this year,” says Clay Allmin, who co-founded Twin Sails Brewing with his twin brother Cody Allmin. Together, they lead Boxset Collective, which also includes Published on Main, Bar Susu, the upcoming Novella, and Thorn & Burrow Wines. “Dat Juice is one of our most popular brands, and pairing it with the Pride rainbow just makes it pop even more. Get it now while you can while raising funds for a great organization.”
Dat Juice is an unfiltered pale ale brewed with large amounts of flaked and malted wheat, then heavily dry hopped with %100 Citra hops. It pours a cloudy pale straw colour with bright aromatics of grapefruit, pineapple and mango. Customers can find the Pride Dat Juice cans at select retailers across British Columbia, BC Liquor Stores, and Twin Sails Port Moody brewery.

About Twin Sails Brewing
Twin Sails Brewing joined Port Moody’s “Brewers Row” late in 2015, opening right next door to Yellow Dog. The name of the brewery refers to its founders, identical twin brothers, as well as the common sight of sailboats that can be seen on the waters of the Burrard Inlet right out front of the brewery. Twin Sails focuses on progressive American IPAs, stouts, sours and wild barrel beers. We are always trying to push the boundaries of what can be done with beer in BC. Quality comes first and foremost, but in the end, it’s just a bunch of guys and girls having way too much fun brewing beer.
