SURREY, BC, March 7, 2017 /CNW/ - Canadians have twelve more "beertastic" reasons to celebrate Canada's 150th Anniversary of Confederation. Central City Brewers + Distillers is pleased to announce a Canada-wide beer collaboration with Canadian breweries from 12 provinces and territories. The Red Racer Across The Nation Collaboration 12-pack commemorates the country's milestone birthday.
The Red Racer Across The Nation Collaboration is the only cross-Canada craft beer mix-pack celebrating Canada 150. Each of the 12 collaboration beers is inspired by the province in which it comes from, and was brewed at Central City's brewery in Surrey, BC.
"There is a great sense of comradery amongst us craft brewers in Canada, and what better way to show our pride in our country than to bring together some of Canada's best breweries on a celebratory mix-pack to commemorate this huge Canadian milestone," says Gary Lohin, Central City Brewers + Distillers' Brewmaster.
The Red Racer Across the Nation Collaboration 12-pack (330 ml bottles) will be available in liquor stores in most provinces in early May 2017, and as two unique 6-packs (East and West) in some provinces.
