Vancouver Craft Beer Week returns for its ninth year May 25 to June 3, and it’s commemorating the annual citywide celebration with its official 2018 VCBW Collaboration Beer. This year, VCBW partnered with Backcountry Brewing (Squamish), Beere Brewing (North Vancouver) and Coast Mountain Brewing (Whistler) to highlight the amazing beer coming out of Sea-to-Sky country. The end result is the Sea-To-Sky Collaboration Double Dry Hopped Pilsner.
With a robust 7% ABV and a copious amount of Citra, Mosaic, Vic Secret and Enigma hops, the 2018 VCBW Sea-To-Sky Collaboration Double Dry Hopped Pilsner is sure to live up to the reputation of the breweries that created it.
“Our annual collaboration beer represents what Vancouver Craft Beer Week is all about: community,” said Leah Heneghan, VCBW director and co-founder in a press release earlier today.
The Double Dry Hopped Pilsner is available in four-packs of 473mL cans at select private liquor and beer stores, and on draft at the three collaborating breweries’ and a few chosen bars and restaurants. It will also be served in cans at the VCBW Kickoff: East Van Crusher on May 25 and on tap at the VCBW Festival at the PNE Fairgrounds on June 2 and 3. Partial proceeds of all 2018 VCBW Collaboration Beer sales will be donated to Eastside Boxing Club’s Self Defence Series for female-identified, and members of the LGBTQ+ community.
