Phew!! Another year under our collective belt. We sure had some fun times this year, and we are gearing up for more to come!!

We’ll be kick-starting 2014 with our THIRD ANNUAL (!!) BREWMASTER INVITATIONAL WEEKEND Friday & Saturday January 17 & 18. Cedric has invited brewmasters Graham With (Parallel 49 Brewing – Vancouver), Sean Hoyne (Hoyne Brewing – Victoria) and Ron & Patt Dyck (Cannery Brewing – Penticton) to come up for a visit and some fun times.

One beer from each brewmaster has been paired with a local chef to create a 4-course beer-pairing menu for Friday night and for Saturday, we have schemed with our pals at the Old Courthouse Inn/ Edie Rae’s Cafe and CAMRA Powell River for a PAJAMA CASK PARTY! Each brewmaster is bringing a special cask for Saturday night, Chef Kelly Belanger of Edie Rae’s Cafe will have a delicious assortment of yummies, and we’ll be taking over the entire inn for the evening with cask and food stations.

The dinner is already sold out, but there are a few ways you can still get tickets for Saturday night’s pajamacaskarama:

1. Purchase from the brewery store, The Old Courthouse Inn, or by calling 604.223.3064

2. Book a room at the Old Courthouse Inn for Saturday night and receive an all-access wristband

3. WIN TICKETS FOR THE ENTIRE WEEKEND – including the sold-out dinner – from CAMRA Powell River!

October’s growler proceeds netted $454 for the fledgling CAMRA Powell River! To date, our donation programs have raised almost $14,000 for Sunshine Coast non-profits!

In November, we support a family in need and this year we have chosen to help Stacy Stewart and her battle with stage 4 cancer. We will give $1 from every growler filled in November to help her and her family through the holiday season.

Does your non-profit organization want a share of growler proceeds? Please visit our Community page to find out how to apply. Deadline for applications is December 1.
