Howe Sound Brewing Company has become known for their excellent specialty brews that are packaged in 1 L bottles. Recently they started a philanthropic program, stating that:

“real change happens when innovation and thought create a helping hand to special and unique environmental projects, humanitarian projects or local events.”

Last year, just in time for Remembrance Day, they released Boomer’s Canadian Red Ale, which was named in honour of Andrew “Boomer” Eykelenboom, a Canadian Armed Forces Medic who was killed in Afghanistan. Proceeds went to the Boomers Legacy Fund.

Now they’re teaming up with the Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society and launching “Beer for Animals”. Rockfish Red Ale is brewed with Chinook, Cascade & Mt. Hood hops, with Roasted Barley, Munich, Caramalt and Chocolate malts. It will be available in March and $1 from every bottle will go to CPAWS habitat conservation.

Cheers to a good cause!
