The staff and owners at Steam Whistle Brewing are sending a very special care package to Canada’s troops in Afghanistan this Christmas: All members of staff have contributed their weekly beer allotment to be sent overseas, and owners Cam Heaps and Greg Taylor have thrown in an equal amount to the effort. The beer will be arriving just in time for the holiday celebrations, one of only three times in the year that the troops are allowed to drink alcohol.
Regardless of what you may think of the war (or for that matter, what you may think of Steam Whistle), I’m sure that everyone reading this would agree that it must really suck to be stationed in a country where alcohol is officially outlawed – not to mention that whole thing where people are shooting at you and trying to blow you up and stuff. So kudos to the folks at Steam Whistle for helping to spread a little cheer amongst those brave Canadians who will be away from their families this Christmas, and who are putting their lives on the line every day.
