Are you a lover of the Finest Beer?Illustration of Wheat

Community

Beer has been at the centre of community since the outset of civilization. We have gathered and shared conversation, broken bread, played music and games, danced and occasionally shed a tear or two. This is at the heart of why we do all this. We make beer to add to life’s enjoyment. It’s simple, really.

We’ve been told that we give a lot back to our community. That’s not exactly how we see it. We are just doing what feels right to do. Lots of companies give back. And so they should. We do our part because we care and because we can. We’re all in this together.

Charity of the Month

Times Colonist Literacy Fund

Victoria wouldn’t be the same without the Times Colonist’s annual book sale.  It has been a long running fundraiser for literacy related programs on Vancouver Island since 1998.  The sale generates thousands of dollars in support of over 180 beneficiaries, mostly schools.  Though they had to shelf the event this year due to Covid, they’re not closing the book, and you still have a chance to support them by donating here:
